Think of it though, the Blue Jays are the only team not making the playoffs in that division. Tampa and Baltimore have both made it work despite not having the tv rights to 30 million tvs.
But IMHO Tampa and Baltimore are example of franchises which are well enough run they can make a small leap for a year or two before falling back below mediocrity.
That was the first time Baltimore has been out of the basement in their division since 2007, which not surprisingly was the last year in which they were above the median in team salary.
TB mind you has been a model of what astute business and baseball minds can do. But those are few and far between.
