A little off subject but those numbers show how this year so many large market teams are struggling and in most cases blowing a lot of money on players whose skills are declining. Both LA teams and Philadelphia meet that criteria.
If you take it by market, I believe the 4 largest markets in America are NY, LA, Chicago and Houston. Well, there's a lot of bad baseball in those cities right now. Usually money buys you better teams than that but not this year. Of course in Houston's case, they're not blowing money. They're just a bad large market team.
