Detroit (AP): In a shocking, unprecedented, development, the New York Yankees have purchased the Game 4 win from the Detroit Tigers. The Yankees reportedly paid $25 million for the win.
George Steinbrenner announced the purchase in a 10 PM Press Conference. "The indirect method of purchasing wins had left too much to chance. I felt I had to take positive steps to further the Yankees legacy. Lord know the players weren't doing it."
Tigers owner Michael Ilitch who earlier had stated that 2006 was the first year the Tigers had made a profit, justified the purchase: "I feel strongly that the Tigers can sell Game 4 and still beat the Yankees".
MLB Officials have been huddling ever since the annoucement trying to determine whether it is legal, and what their response should be.
