Re: Correlation between team payroll and making the playoffs
Very interesting post, mb. For me, it spotlights a problem as baseball heads into the latest free agent auction. Last season, the Yankees came away with probably the three top free agents and now head into the current market prepared to bid on Holliday and Lackey. I just don't see how that can possibly be good for baseball. They either sign the top players or drive their price tags/the going market up.
