Reference to the New York Yankeees made by Boston Red Sox President Larry Lucchino. Called such because of their propensity to purchase baseball championships year after year.
The Yankees are the evil empire of baseball with the highest payroll in baseball of almost $190 million.

However, the Red Sox, who refer to the Yankees as such, have a payroll of almost $130 million, second highest in baseball. Would that make them the almost-evil empire? Or, how about the jealous empire?

Wal-Mart is such an evil empire. They crush competition, pay ridiculously low wages, and pass health care costs to their workers. They also make huge contributions to the Rebublican Party.

Ugly copper-roofed monstrosities (buildings) situated in Coeurdifornia, Idaho on once-eautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene. Motto: Greed rules!!!
When the Evil Empire enticed Californians to move to north Idaho, it was the beginning of the end for Coeurdifornia (once known as the peaceful and beautiful Coeur d'Alene).

The New York Yankees. Since the Yankees have more money than God, and can freely spend whatever obscene amount they damned well please, some folks consider owner George Steinbrenner to be baseball's equivalent of Darth Vader, and the team to be the Evil Empire. Sucks for you. Go Yankees.
Crybaby Red Sox fans call the Yankees the Evil Empire because their team won't spend the money that they get from revenue sharing or luxury tax to field a competitive team. Sure, they broke the Curse in 2004, but what's their excuse now? Thay don't have one anymore. They just suck.
