Yankees hit with $26.9 million luxury tax bill

The Commissioner's office announced today that the Yankees will have to pay $26.9 million for exceeding the luxury tax threshold. A bad season just got worse.

The Tigers, the only other team that had to pay, only had to put forth $1.3 million.

On a happier note, today is Festivus! My second annual Festivus post will be up at 10 a.m. ET. In the meantime, check out what I did for Festivus last year.

A fun time will be had by all. I can promise you this year's post will be 10 times better than last year's, and I thought last year's was pretty good. That's good news for you.

Festivus! Finally, a holiday for the rest of us. Paul O'neill once hit a home run for me. I was in the hospital.

It's 10 am...where the heck is my Festivus post?!

And you really should have started this story: "The Yankees signed a new free agent today...and his name is Fiscal Irresponsibility.
