The Dodgers have ownership that is willing to put the best possible product on the field. The Yankees don't. Honestly, ownership doesn't care about the fans, or about winning, or about anything. It's all about the money. The Boss wouldn't stand for this.
The Dodgers new ownership is trying to follow the Yankee business model. Build a team of stars, spend a boatload, become the "evil empire" that everyone either loves or hates, and make money.
As much as this sucks, I can't say I blame ownership here. No matter how much money you have, pissing away tens of millions of dollars (or more) is never a good idea. The Boss is gone, get over it. When the Dodgers drunken spending spree blows up in their face, that will be one less team that does it that way..
