“I don’t like the Yankees, but I’m a huge fan of being overpaid to underperform”

The New York Yankees usually have one of the highest team payrolls in all of major league baseball. However, the Yankees don’t always make the playoffs.  “I don’t like the Yankees, but I’m a huge fan of being overpaid to underperform” is a jocular saying by someone who’s not a Yankees fan.
 
The saying was printed on an ecard and was first posted on Twitter on October 16, 2012.
 
     
Wikipedia: New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the New York City borough of the Bronx. The Yankees compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. The Yankees are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the NL New York Mets.
