Have the Yankees become the Welfare State of Major League Baseball? I’m watching the (fun!) game last night between the Yanks and the Sox, and I notice that almost every coach working for Joe Torre (Pena at first, Kerrigan in the Bullpen, etc.) is a former team manager who was recently fired. (Hey–why didn’t Steinbrenner hire Grady Little?)

And yet K-Lo and some of my pals at NR like to talk up the Yankees like they’re a no-brainer for conservatives. Why? Just because they all have short hair and pin-stripes?
