It is because its less a cap than more a guarantee. If MLB had the NHL "salary cap last year" owners would have been obliged to top off players salaries by about 10%. You don't think those guys would easily vote themselves a ten per cent raise? In a second.
I'm trying to be nice here. You really believe the MLB players association would accept a salary cap where big market teams are capped? Go look at the amount of money being spent in Major League Baseball this winter. There is no cap. The luxury tax begins at $178M. The salary cap is so much better
