What's the source for the $55M?

Also, do the Yankees really have five players in their infield? I assume Posada is being counted as an "infielder".

A-Rod, C.C., Jeter, and Tex, were 4 players that cost $99 million dollars this year, slightly more than the ENTIRE Twins team.

What cavern do you pull that number out of? Are you an heir to the Steinbrenner fortune?

Actually the 4 highest paid Yankees combined make over $100 million.

As do the next 8 highest paid Yankees.

Actually the highest paid Pirate would be the 16th highest paid Yankee, just ahead of a set up man and a pitcher who has 4 IP's in the past 3 years.
