A salary cap with a salary floor is the way to go
I'll take a salary floor based on industry revenues and then an expanded luxury tax. I certainly don't want to end up in a spot where teams are making more money and simply pocket it because the cap isn't properly pegged.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
