if each team can only spend 100 million, for example, once the teams spend that much then they cant spend anymore. they will need to spend the money they have more wisely. that is what i am getting at. i understand how salary caps work, and i understand players would prefer to go to ny or boston over kc for example. you can bet your sweet A** that the yankees are going to spend whatever they need to spend to not be made to look foolish again...even if that means 300 million. Teams like toronto and tampa cant afford that, hence the need for a salary cap. I understand players have contracts that need to be honored, but mlb might need to say, for example, in the year 2008 teams will need to limit their payroll to 100 million or whatever it could be. that way teams can plan for this. A salary cap can work and probably should be implimented in the next 5 or 7 years
Man, how many times (in several different threads) do we need to explain this whole cap thing to people? A cap won't help baseball. Players are still gonna go where they want to go, and that is to teams like Boston and the Yankees who can win every year. Do you think someone's gonna pick the Diamondbacks over the Yankees if he wants to win a championship? Someone in this thread already explained why a cap works so well in football and why it won't work in baseball (or hockey for that matter) so do some reading and you'll see for yourself.
