    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    First decade since the 1910s that the Yankees did not advance to a single World Series. Shoulda bought some starters to go along with your entire lineup and entire bullpen.

    NFL off-season / free agency

    ntz's theory about teams only being competitive while their QB is on a rookie deal is compelling. You can't afford to retain superstars at other positions if your QB is making that much. Rodgers, Flacco, Wilson, Cam (didn't win but still), you win and then you get paid as reward after the fact.

    Damn U Mexico City

    Foreign games are a novelty, give them the 2-8 teams. They don't care. When two 9-1 teams play in a Superbowl preview, you don't play in ****ing Mexico.

    Welcome back to the SS 2018 program

    Hey since this is where the mods are, when will SBF get rid of the malicious code on its site that is causing it to be filtered as "malware" by AV programs?

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    What does that have to do with team salary, at all? The teams with low payrolls lose and lose consistently year over year, because of the inability to pay free agent talent. You're talking about the draft like amateurs become productive pros out of the gate like in the NFL and NBA, when that is...

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    One team in the bottom half of payroll won, and in that year they had a rental Ivan Rodriguez and a LOT of young pitchers having a year. Brad Penny, Dontrelle Willis, and of course Josh Beckett having a postseason for the ages. So that's one case of lightning in a bottle, cool story. Disproves...

    The idea of a level playing field bothers you, evidently.

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    If only there was more than one single point of payroll information online. Shame you have that bronze package internet that only allows access to that one site with the figures you like.

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    So its my "feelings" and not objective reality now. Cubs payroll 169 million more than Tampas. Not a feeling. Otani bought with cash. Not a feeling. In fact, my argument is based wholly on numbers, and yours is predicated on "nuht uh."

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    Shohei Otani was literally bought with cash outside the draft. I mean, the **** is this? Small market teams have to compete in the amateur draft, scout latin america against everyone else, develop their minor league coaching system to develop their guys, and some wealthy big city club can just...

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    Team A having a payroll 20 times larger than team B is indefensible, despite the sorcery you're trying to bring forth to defend the big market clubs. It's an ongoing problem that is exacerbated by Japan's posting system and the emergence of a second, parallel auction style system to acquire...

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    Irrelevant, titles aren't bought in the NFL, and a 20-30% payroll spread is insignificant compared to a 15-20x spread where one team's entire payroll is less than that of a single player. I don't know how this is difficult for you to grasp.

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    Without reading it, does it delve into the 'why' question at all? Baseball has 5 man rotations, no reason some teams can hoard starters and others sell them off. The buyer/seller dichotomy in baseball doesn't exist in the NFL. The Colts are not going to trade Andrew Luck mid-season.

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    Correct, there are good teams and bad teams, but the bad teams are wholly able to compete and acquire players via the exact same mechanisms as everyone else. There is no outside draft where pro level talent is literally auctioned off to the wealthy teams. There is no mass exodus of franchise...

    MLB 2018: The Yankees buy a championship off of Amazon

    And? If there are dynasties in the NFL, they're drafted. Not bought. Why don't quarterbacks change teams? Why didn't Brady, Rodgers, etc. test the FA waters? For that matter, how does a team based in Green Bay sign Rodgers and compete? I know the answers. You do too.

    So you agree or disagree with my core premise that an unbalanced, non competitive league sucks?
