    Before I post anything, I will profess to not knowing a lot about the MLB pay structure. All I know is that while MLB does not have a set salary cap, the luxury tax charges teams with high payrolls a considerable amount of money, giving teams ample reason to want to keep their payrolls below that level. But if you look at the disparity between the teams with the highest payrolls and those with the lowest, the "tax" doesn't create the more equal playing field that the NFL sees with their Cap.

    LEAGUE AVERAGE: $136,602,155

    2019 TOTAL PAYROLL

    1 Boston Red Sox - $229,121,106
    2 Chicago Cubs - $218,090,085
    3 New York Yankees - $218,025,005
    4 Los Angeles Dodgers - $200,600,814
    5 San Francisco Giants - $173,069,310
    6 Houston Astros - $168,304,925
    7 Washington Nationals - $167,714,782
    8 St. Louis Cardinals - $164,152,164
    9 Los Angeles Angels - $160,216,673
    10 New York Mets - $158,816,800
    11 Philadelphia Phillies - $156,631,276
    12 Colorado Rockies - $156,582,629
    13 Seattle Mariners - $143,384,319
    14 Atlanta Braves - $137,667,301
    15 Texas Rangers - $128,892,642

    After collecting all these numbers and getting to team #15, I decided to stop LOL :oops::laugh:

    Not really sure where this post is or was going to go, now that I have done all this. I was going to try and make the point that the Brewers, despite being in the middle of the pack as far as spending goes, have done a great job with what they have done. Which I guess is true, but the same could be said for the Rays, Twins, A's, Braves and Indians. Whereas big spenders like the Red Sox, Giants, Angels, Rockies and I would put the Cubs in there, have spent a ton of money, without equally good results.

    I doubt it will ever happen and if it does, I probably won't fully understand it, but it would be nice to see better restraints put on Roster Spending in MLB. Had it not been for the Salary Cap in the NFL, I have to wonder just where the Packers would be.
