Another news source describes the extent of the inequities and competetive inbalance that plagues major league baseball.

Key points from the article are at the end...The alternatives are to keep watching the Yankees control the game's agenda, or to watch Red Sox-style prices spread throughout the game as other owners try to keep up. (For those who are unaware, the average cost of a Red Sox ticket last year was $42.34. The next highest team was The Evil Empire itself at $24.86; the major-league average was $18.69.) To put it another way, the Alex Rodriguez deal makes it clear: baseball has two choices, a structure where there's the Yankees and everyone else, or one where the Yankees are in with everyone else. For the long-term health of the game, it should be obvious which choice is the preferable one.I think this Arod deal will be the beginning of the salary cap in baseball...
