I find it hard to believe that the Yankees and Red Sox -- the two teams most likely to benefit from this type of massive salary dump in the future -- would be shortsighted enough to try and set a precedent blocking it.

I think that Bud just wanted to make it look like he was trying, so he has some defense against small market fans.
