Why Are MLB Teams Treating $246M Like A Hard Barrier?

    So it's cap now in NFL instead of cap later in MLB. Potato Potahto

    The analysis by the undergraduate at Brown is interesting.

    Just reinforces my belief that the players union needs to make losing hurt more. Maybe on top of the penalties I laid out before, propose that the first overall draft pick can’t go to a team that loses more than 95 games unless their payroll was at least 1/2 the luxury tax threshold. Something like if you lose 102 games with a $60 million payroll, your first pick gets moved back 4 spots. That won’t matter for someone like Angelos who couldn’t care less about winning, but it would help out teams like Milwaukee and Minnesota who try.
