You guys know that Tampa has had a top three baseball team for about four years now right?

Tampa draws even fewer people than the Spos did than they were good. It's just intellectually dishonest to rant on about how small markets can never win and then point to the Dodgers (!!!), the Orioles, the Pirates and the Royals as examples. Those are maybe the four worst owners in baseball 1-4 and even then the Royals are stacked with young talent and could very well be a good team as soon as next year.

Also, baseball basically has a salary cap now and the smallest market in baseball by population just gave their first basemen 10 years and $220 million. Stop complaining.
