I can't agree with your comparison of Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez to John Lennon and Paul McCartney. As my favorite band, the Beatles, said, "Money can't buy me love"—but wow, did these Yankees ever buy themselves the best baseball team.

I took your great photo of Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee in action (Postseason on the Brink, Nov. 9) and stapled it to the wall. I'm 44 years old. Thanks for making me remember what it's like to be 12.

Here's how you solve the Yankees problem (World Domination, Nov. 16): Put another franchise in New York. The value of the Yankees' advertising, TV and radio deals will immediately decline and the worth of the franchise will drop. There will be no more $200 million--plus payrolls, because the team won't have that obscene amount of money available.

From Iowa with Love
I understand some of the griping around the nation because Iowa (Good and Lucky, Nov. 9), though highly ranked after starting 9--0, wasn't winning every game by 40. But the way they have won is more enjoyable for the fans. Each game has been like a James Bond film with a last-second flash of brilliance that saved the day.
