I'm sure penny-pinching does have a part in the team not paying someone league minimum to sit in the press box, but they're really doing the team a disservice. Obviously, having guys as healthy scratches means you can sit guys who play badly and be able to replace injured guys without having to call anyone up (and possibly disrupt the minor league team, although they haven't missed a beat so far)
