It's certainly true that money doesn't always guarantee success in the season and postseason (Yankees, Braves prior to last year), but the baseball world---particularly the fans---have suffered as a consequence of the big increase in prices for memorabilia, tickets, and even parking at the stadium. The main reason why the A's and Twins keep winning is because they have outstanding GM's, Billy Beane and Terry Ryan, who have a keen eye on young talent. Overall, small market teams in K.C., Pittsburgh, and St. Petersburg still have trouble competing with others in the continuously stratospheric salary game, so I'm still for a salary cap in order to make it a more even playing field, which would benefit the pocketbooks of the average fans. The NFL and NBA have been successful at this for the most part.
