If your team sucks, it because it's ran like garbage, not because baseball lacks parity.
If your idea of "contend" is to squeak into the playoffs and then maybe win a round before being eliminated then I think baseball is the perfect sport for you.
Baseball most certainly does lack parity. The huge disparity in average player salaries on different teams is a dead giveaway. The teams you posted are exceptions to the norm.
