The only reason MLB doesn't fight every CBA is exactly what this guy is posting.

If there was a salary floor, say 80 million. MLB owners would be crying foul and trying to take it out on the players.

The Oakland A's have had a payroll over 70 million ONCE in about a DECADE. Despite having a Billionaire owner for the last Eight years.

You can say the same for about 12 more MLB teams, over the last Decade...
But... but... but... It's all the NHLs fault... those meanies.

I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
