I don’t believe baseball should have a salary cap because it would have too many restrictions.
It seems like teams are pretty evenly matched and the teams with the highest salaries haven’t enjoyed too much of an advantage. The Yankees have had the highest payroll for quite some time, but haven’t won in nine years, and right now, there are 10 teams under .500, 10 over .500 and 10 teams about .500. The parity part looks like its working. I don’t just don’t foresee a cap because it has been attempted.
But who knows? With Donald Fehr, the head of the union, retiring, we might see something be put into action. The only thing that probably needs work is players’ pensions. Salaries have escalated so much and I just don’t see it going backwards.
