    A cap is not the solution. Caps are designed to lower spending on players.

    To me, the solution is to increase revenue sharing but only on a condition of winning. Owners need to be financially incentivized to win. If you are a team that pays into revenue sharing then the more you win the lower percentage you pay into revenue sharing. If you are a team that received revenue sharing then the more you win the more you collect.

    If the Rays can win the AL on a $60 million payroll then good for them. If the pirates lose 110 games with a $40 million payroll they should collect less revenue sharing money than the Rays do. If the big market Cubs want to tank then they should pay a higher percentage into revenue sharing than the big market teams that donít tank.

    No, but they don't really spend either

    They're just a really good run organization from bottom up

    I think they fit the description of what Kershaw is asking for though. You donít see the cards trading a Cy young candidate for 4 18 year olds to cut costs rather than try to win. They make some trades that donít work out but typically they make trades with the goal of getting better in the short term, not 5 years down the road.

    The Cubs operating the way they are for the 2nd time in a decade is embarrassing and players see it that way.

    Iím surprised the Yankees arenít doing much of anything. They have a squad ready to win and they are just standing pat. Doesnít make a lot of sense

    They will spend though. Itís not like they refuse to spend. I mean they just took on Arenado (yes I know Colorado paid a chunk, but still), traded and extended Goldy, they had around $200 million offers on the table for Heyward and Price. They arenít just going to go crazy spending money, but if thereís a guy out there they like and itís at the right time, they will pay up.

    Not the worst guy as a 5 OF. Especially because he is probably averageish against LHPs. Better than Almora, at least.
    He looks like almost a clone of Almora. Better wheels, more K's. Neither can hit. 9th inning defensive replacement and pinch runner. Yay.

    Imagine having a job where you're paid 1.5 million dollars a year to watch Cubs games and then stand in the Wrigley Field outfield for one inning a game to shag flies.

    Pretty sure it's because embedding tweets on PSD is broken.

    Just realized they took Marquee off Hulu. Not really sure how Iím gonna watch games this year cause Iím not paying hundreds of dollars for cable.
    The channel has been a disappointing nightmare.
