The Twins decided to make a run at Mauer and Morneau instead of paying top dollar to Santana. I can't really argue with them considering that a long term extension for Santana would pay him top dollar as he started to become unproductive.
If MLB takes notes from all professional sports salary cap they can get the best of both world. Put a cap and floor but also make it so there is a vet maximum and a player can make the most money signing with his current team a la the NBA.
You'll never sell a cap to the Players Association but few would object to a floor except the Pirates and Rays and Marlins.
