I mentioned the 27 championships because you're saying they fail so often. They win once every 4 years. You can't really expect more from a team, in any sport. Even the invincible Heat lost to the Mavericks and should have lost to the Spurs. Plus, MLB has changed. Lots of teams spend money like the Yankees. How should the Yankees be expected to win every year when a third of the league has spent the same amount of money? And nice skid mark analogy. Really enlightening.
