    How are the team and player going to negotiate when there's no other competitors who the player can negotiate with?

    Because right now the owners choose to have their payrolls match a percentage of their revenue, so sharing out all the revenue evenly could result in similar payrolls. However, as I pointed out...

    All you said was you think 6 years is too long. How are those players going to negotiate? For the first 3 years, they take what they're given. The next 3 years, they go to arbitration if the team...

    What does that have to do with anything? I simply said it only takes 1 owner with ridiculous resources to spend more than is reasonable if you don't have a hard cap.

    Yeah, the Yankees will likely miss the playoffs for only the second time in the past 19 years. They really shouldn't be an example you try to use to show the negative side of absurd spending. The...

    Redmond at 81 pitches through 4 innings... I guess it looks good after following Josh Johnson.

    Brett Lawrie got thrown out of a game earlier this season, after striking out to end an inning, by walking off his frustrating down the third base line in a manner which the home plate umpire deemed...

    I'm going to assume you're being serious and not aware that Josh Johnson's career before the Blue Jays was played entirely in the National League where the Houston Astros also resided.

    Owners with more resources outside of of the revenue they get from the sport would still be able to outspend others if the league was uncapped. Look at the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA. They have a...

    So you don't think LeBron James is paid well? You don't think NBA players are paid well enough in general? What percentage of revenue do you think is fair? What split of that player's share of...

    Actually a cap would fix that.

    In addition, a much greater system of revenue sharing (like the one you propose) would also be very beneficial to helping small market teams not simply hover around...

    I'm not sure how you think LeBron James salary was suppressed. He chose to take a few million dollars less than the max simply to leave the Heat with a bit more cap space. But yes, cap cheating is...

    It wasn't sarcasm. Anthopoulos has stated he doesn't like getting in "bidding wars" for free agents, he prefers to trade away prospects instead. I think it's absolutely ridiculous.

    I wonder how much the Atlanta Braves love "human error" by people on the field who aren't players after the wild card game in 2012.

    Anthopoulos has made it clear that he doesn't like picking up assets which require nothing more than money. (Yu Darvish, Prince Fielder, etc). He prefers to give up talent from the minors.
