Yep. I've been saying this for a few years. The continued emergence of revenue from MLBAM will create an equal playing field as teams are equal partners in the investment. The national contracts will eventually be kept by Major League Baseball primarily, so that money will flow rather evenly as well.
The local revenues will continue to differ, but as MLB has a greater chunk of revenue distribution, baseball will be very healthy.
I'd still like some sort of salary threshold, but the need for it is diminishing by the year.
