Plenty relative to what most of us have, but not plenty relative to one another.

There is great disparity in the television money. The Dodgers lead with 200 million dollar annual package. Oakland, Cleveland, San Diego, Minnesota, Atlanta, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Colorado, Milwaukee, Miami and Tampa Bay all have deals which bring in less than 50 million. The distribution of television revenues correlates to the sizes of the markets.

MLB is not the like the NFL where all television revenues are pooled and shared equally.

Of course some teams have a monetary advantage over others

But, there's still no reason for a salary floor.
It would only hurt teams to force them to spend another $10 or $20 million on a player who would help them win a couple more games a season instead of investing that money into player development, research, scouting, etc...

Forcing teams, especially teams that receive revenue sharing money, to put a certain amount back into the team would be a much better idea than a payroll floor.

Though, I'd certainly be in favor of a greatly increased major league minimum salary (which would, as I've mentioned, increase the payroll floor).

If any were in the red as claimed, some would sell for less than prior sale price. Hasn't happened in many decades.

Okay, but that none are in the red does not make them equal. If I had 200 million dollars and you had fifty million, neither of us are hurting financially, but I could go on the bigger shopping spree.

You could, but the tightwads would add resale value by spending more, winning more, and deferring the windfall profits until the sale.

As is obvious...If yankees win, they make a crap load of money thus they dont care about going over the cap..a vicious cycle that destroys all but the top payrolls.

no there is no salary cap. there is a luxury tax. If teams go over the luxury tax, they pay a tax penalty, but unlike a cap, there is nothing to stop them from going over.

Every team pays their players.

The Yankees are the richest team.

Of course they pay their players more.

Again, they don't get extra diamonds in their World Series ring if they give more money to the owner instead of giving it to the players.
