But from what I can remember, in the 90s, the Yankees were winning with what they grew. Obviously there will be a few FA's/trades players on their roster, but it seemed the core guys really earned those rings.
That year 3 of the top 10 salaries we're Bernie, Jeter, and Pettitte.. The others were players who were traded for either before 1999 or that year. . Clemens was brought in via trade for David Wells. Brosius was really a no name before coming to the Yankees. Knoblauch? We traded eric milton and christian guzman two highly regarded prospects at the time. So its not li. We just stole guys. Tino was also traded for. Same with david cone.. the 96-00 yankees were built with our farm system and good trades.
