The New York Yankees, the Microsoft of baseball

Greg Knauss on how the New York Yankees are like Microsoft.

But, wait… Two-thousand was — the last time the Yankees managed to win a championship. And it was awfully close to the last time that that Microsoft managed to produce a version of Windows that anybody cared about. And, hey, both the Yankees and Microsoft have long histories of dominating their professions, and of using that dominance to run up huge payrolls with — let’s be honest here — a near-decade of lackluster results.

It’s an uncanny resemblance.
