and this is why I can never be a serious baseball fan. Other than a few flukes here and there, you basically have the same 3 or 4 teams shelling out ridiculous amounts of money every year for the best players. If you do happen to develop your own talent, once they are good you simply lose them to one of the 3 or 4 teams. The lack of loyalty is staggering, I don't even know who's on what team from year to year because no one sticks. It's only going to get worse as seats get more empty like they steadily have the last few decades. they should just eliminate 70% of all teams and they probaly will soon, as younger generation just doesn't care about baseball.
The Tampa Bay Rays this year disagree
A fluke if there ever was one, let's just see how much of that young talent actually stays there in the next couple of years. It will only prove my point further. Until baseball gets a salary cap like every other sport, I'll never take it seriously.
