    They would probably also contest for ownership of the phrase "death star" used in reference to baseball as well.
    And we all know how that ended up.

    Seems like smart marketing to me, especially playing the Star Wars music. They should sign Austin Kearns. After all, he is Darth Vader in baseball spikes.

    "In short, the record shows that there is only one Evil Empire in baseball and it is the New York Yankees," wrote the judges.
    That line cracks me up.

    I was a bit surprised they did very little to upgrade the team in the off season.

    Well, the Soviet Union was the original "Evil Empire," but they lacked a baseball team.

    So much for admitting it, they played the Imperial March when the Red Sox were introduced and the Star Wars theme when the Yankees were.
