Only one team has won in the last 20 years without a top 15 payroll though. That would be the 04? 03? Cannot remember Marlins. They immediately sold off their talent to Boston and Detroit. So there is that. Not saying money means you will win, but in baseball if you don't have it you aren't going to have a good chance at all. So a 5% chance in the last 20 years. Now the other big spenders can knock you off, but a lot of people calling for the end of the salary cap and loving baseballs system during the lockout were overlooking that very hard fact. Just because one small payroll team makes runs and then gets sent home without the grand prize each year doesn't really make that system work either.
