That's my point exactly, Skraut. I mean, I'm not a huge baseball fan these days, but honestly, the lack of cap is one of the main reasons why. Sure the Tribe can once in a blue moon assemble the requisite pieces to go on a nice run, but within a couple years, the team which does so has to be completely disassembled for cost concerns. They can't afford to keep C.C. "The money doesn't matter to me" Sabathia because he's just going to bolt to NY for the money, and they trade him for a couple of prospects.

Sure teams make faulty personnel decisions ala the Pirates (who I just used as an obvious example), but if I'm a cheapskate team owner, I've got to wonder if it is even worth it to try and develop any talent when they're just going to sign with the Yankees or Red Sox at the nearest chance they get.
