Bump.

Welcome to this years championship match-ups.

All 4 teams started the year top 7 in payroll.

Since every time some low payroll team manages to make a decent run they post it up as proof that payroll imbalances haven't wrecked the league balance, here is a dose or reality.

And they keep shoving moneyball up our backside as *proof* that small market teams can be competitive.

Yes, if you do everything right, if you catch some breaks and have no misfortune and are brilliantly run....you can occasionally compete with the guys with the big checkbooks. Victory! sigh.
