Thread: Yankees - Red Sox
09-23-2007, 10:22 AM #26Historically, when a small market team does well, they do wel for one year. After that, with their players market value up, they either unload their players (Florida Marlins) or refuse to invest the money in their team to retain their players (like Minnesota wil do this year).
This point helps to make my case for a salary cap. A properly worded and enforced salary cap that is equal across the board, such as the NFLís would prevent this. Teams should not be able to sell off their players following a championship, or even a championship run.
I would also be in favor of a salary minimum for each team, properly enforced and worded.
ALL large market teams would be in first place and all small market teams would be in last? Look at the Chisox, two years after winning the WS, they suck as bad as a team can suck.
The NY Islanders (Potvin sucks). A terribe team in a large market-low crowds. The NY Knicks. A terrible team-low crowds.
Then look at your own Brewers. Small market team in a pennant race.
Up until this point in time, any quality players have always been at risk for being signed to somewhere else.
The other big notable change with them though, is that they are now owned by a Ďdeep-pocketsí owner, who by all appearances so far will be willing to spend some money.
Jeff Suppan was actually a so-called marquee free-agent they actually signed, granted he is no A-Rod, but you have to start somewhere.
When the Yankees come to Milwaukee, how easy is it to get a seat?
This year is the exception, success does bring people out to the park.
Baseball HAS revenue sharing. In 2006, the Yankees paid about $77 million in revenue sharing and uxury tax.
I've had this argument with others on here whose starting point for the argument is "the Yankees suck"!
Iíve just been trying to think of how baseball cold be made better. There isnít a lot that is wrong with baseball, but it could still be better.
All other things aside, I think the world series winner comes out of the Yankees-Red Sox race. I think both clubs are a full head taller than anything the National League has to offer this year.

Thank you Yankees for the Red Sox: AL East Division Champions.....first time in 12 years.
What a great play by the Orioles...bases loaded, 2 outs, bunt to win the game......I don't think any body saw that coming.
