    They should make a rule change where a team loses it's first round draft pick if they purposely dump all their salaried players and drop below a certain salary threshold...

    I think it's beautiful... no other sport allows such parity.

    There's nothing to guarantee the Dodgers will be the better team in 3 years.
    Son, you just don't get it, i'm talking bout TWTW!

    That would only penalize a team like the Stro's who are legit in efforts to rebuild.. If it was tied to behavior the Marlins demonstrated in the last year I agree..But not on Stro's..

    Anyone trying to say there isn't a connection with spending money and winning is a complete moron. Can someone explain why there shouldn't be a salary cap?

    Considering we have had this discussion 15 times on here, no. No one should have to explain it any longer.

    2. MLB is better off having teams like the Yankees and Dodgers go nuts adding payroll like they do.
    3. the MLB is far better off economically by allowing a free market to exist
    4. We have revenue sharing and a luxury tax, if you want to fix anything, fix those.
    5. The Marlins trade happened because the MLB doesn't force NTC, when they probably should for all veterans of so many years.
    6. You would think after the several recent years of teams doing awesome with no payrolls, you would think this topic would stop getting brought up. The A's, O's, Rays, Reds....these are small payroll teams, and they do well.
    7. The players have a right to earn as much money as they can, considering their path to success is so long, and they have so little control over what happens to them.
    8. If you are mad at anybody. Don't be made at the Yankees, Dodgers, and Red Sox. Be mad at the bad organizations who don't spend money and collect revenue sharing.
    9....and this is the biggest one.


    Spending does not equate to winning in baseball, so imposing an arbitrary spending figure to force teams to carry a payroll amount and limiting what they can and can't spend will not help teams. The best players will still go to teams like the Yankees because they want to win. Not because they get paid the most. A salary cap is nothing short of an artificial financial threshold where you are passing dollars from the players to the owners and taking leverage away from the players.



    And it won't ever happen, our players union is way too strong now.


    Now, here are the links to previous threads saying the same things
