I still think though that teams cannot buy championships. They can buy their way into the ability to be competitive but when the Yankees when on their run in the 90's, a good chunk of their team was home grown talent. After a while, they started to get the big name free agents and they haven't been as successful. The thing is about spending all of this money on free agents is that the players that are in free agency are generally on the downslide of their career. The big market teams will never really get the kind of production from a given player that the same player gave to another team. If the Dodgers want to spend 40 million per year on an aging player, by all means let them do it.
