Can Money Buy The World Series?

Much has been made about this year's World Series champions, the New York Yankees, and their astronomical payroll. Many critics point to the estimated $208 million dollars the Yankees spent in player salaries in 2009, and claim that the Bronx Bombers simply "bought" the World Series championship. While it's true the Yankees far outspent any of their opponents this past season, it's hard to argue with the results: they are baseball's best in 2009. But the Yankees' payroll is a point of contention among baseball fans and writers this season, so we've decided to take a look at this past decade's World Series champions, and analyze whether big bucks were the primary reason for their success.
