Be prepared for more very expensive borderline, but not quite, playoff teams in the coming years.
I would rather have my owner and management spend money on talent and be competitive every year than have a team with a skimpy payroll (like the Devil Rays) and continue to be awful. If it wasn't for the Yankees and revenue sharing, MLB wouldn't be what it is today.

Yes, they try to buy their talent to win (#1 @ $195 mil), but don't act like the Red Sox are the little guys, they're paying $143 mil and ranked 2nd.
