"Thanks to owners with the financial acumen of Mike Tyson, baseball has no salary cap, which means only about 10 teams out of 30 have a chance to win a championship. They know it. We know it. Tibetan monks know it."
Really, Mr. Unnamed Prominent National Columnist? Only 10 teams have a chance to win a championship? Because I'd like to know those 10 teams. The eight teams which made the playoffs last season, right? They must have a chance and the Mets and A's? The Blue Jays and Twins? Indians and Giants? Phillies? Cubs? What about the Dodgers? They don't exactly play in a small market or have an uncompetitive payroll, if that's what you're alluding too. And they were just in the playoffs two seasons ago.
