Yeah, the correlation between money and success still exists of course and poorer teams have much smaller windows but because of economic realities less and less teams are spending whatever it takes to win (Even the Yankees have a budget now) and some poorer teams with good management are actually competitive.

A team like Pittsburgh is both broke and poorly run.
