    This is sad

    This salary cap thing is a necessary evil. Baseball better adopt it or it will be the Mets playing the Yankees and NO ONE WILL CARE ABOUT BASEBALL outside of NY. This coming from a Cardinals fan that used to be able to recite the starting lineups of every Cardinal team from 1964 to 1987.

    Anyway, this salary cap is what keeps the NFL the best league in pro sports. Every year, most teams have hope of the playoffs if not the Super Bowl. Baseball has NY and everyone else. In a way, I see Steinbrenner's point. "If I wanted to buy the Kansas City Royals I would have. I bought the Yankees. You bought the Royals. Why should I share?" The reason: outprice everyone, and no competition means no sport. Baseball, its a free for all. Football, everyone has the same fenced in area. Baseball, people know that the Brewers have no shot. Football, couple FA's and the Packers are back in it. Same market.

    Go figure.

      I totally agree. Baseball will continue to be flawed as long as Steinbrenner and Selig are in there. It's just not worth watching any more. Until the league starts getting hit in the wallet no one will care.

      Salary cap in baseball and hockey is very difficult to maneuver but is DESPERATELY needed in both sports. The problem with both is the constant calling up and down of players to the minors to fill roster spots. If the brain trusts really sat down to hammer it out it could be done, but what chance is that gonna happen.

      Remove the anti-trust exemption and let the Royals and Cardinals play in the World Series!

        PFT: Rams would be well below salary floor if cap was still in place
        by Goldenfleece
        Plenty of teams would be well below the salary floor
        Posted by Mike Florio on March 14, 2010 2:04 PM ET
        In 2009, each NFL team was required to spend $107 million on player salaries. In 2010, plenty of teams currently would be below the minimum, if there were one.

        Indeed, seven franchises would be under $100 million, if there were a salary cap in place.

        We've obtained the salary cap numbers that would apply if the cap were still in place. Based on the numbers, the following franchises are, to date, taking full advantage of the lack of a salary floor: the Chiefs ($79 million), the Buccaneers ($79 million), the Jaguars ($81 million), the Bengals ($85 million), the Cardinals ($91 million), the Rams ($92 million), the Bills ($98 million).

        Five other teams currently are below last year's minimum.

        Sporting News/Draft Sharks approximation on Rams' cap status... and it ain't great...
        by Nick
        Who has money to spend this offseason?
        Posted By Matthew Lutovsky 11:02 AM

        Sporting News

        The mock drafts and scouting reports have already started, so it's clear that "next year" is already on people's minds.

        And even though the NFL draft tends to get all the attention, free agency can be just as important. If a team has a money to spend, it can turn around its fortunes in just one offseason (just ask Michael Turner and the Falcons).

        Obviously, we don't know how teams are going to spend their money, but it's always nice to know who has some cash to spend. The good people over at compiled a list of approximately how much cap room each team has heading into the offseason.

        1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: $42 million. The Bucs have several holes on offense, but they have a lot of money with which to fill them. Does this mean breakout WR Antonio Bryant will be back? It certainly can't hurt their chances of re-signing him.

        2. Arizona Cardinals: $41 million. It's almost not fair that a Super Bowl team has this much cap room to play with. With all this money to spend, the Cardinals should be able to bring back Kurt Warner, but will they have enough to satisfy Anquan Boldin (pictured), too?

        3. Denver Broncos: $34 million. You have to figure most of this money will be used to address defensive needs, but Denver's RB situation isn't very stable. Could they spring for Derrick Ward, or will they address that situation in the draft?

        4. Kansas City Chiefs: $33 million. The Chiefs have a lot of needs, but with a lot of young talent and some money to work with, they could turn things around as quickly as Atlanta did last year.

        5. Tennessee Titans: $31 million. One of their own guys, Albert Haynesworth, is arguably this year's top free agent, so you know they'll make him a generous offer. But Tennessee could also use a big-play receiver, and it wouldn't be a shock to see them try to upgrade there.

        Teams 6-32:

        6. Miami Dolphins: $28 million
        7. Buffalo Bills: $27 million
        8. Detroit Lions: $26 million
        9. San Francisco *****: $26 million
        10. Houston Texans: $25 million
        11. Philadelphia Eagles: $25 million
        12. Cincinnati Bengals: $22 million
        13. New England Patriots: $21 million
        14. Minnesota Vikings: $20 million
        15. Atlanta Falcons: $20 million
        16. Pittsburgh Steelers: $19 million
        17. Baltimore Ravens: $19 million
        18. Chicago Bears: $19 million
        19. Green Bay Packers: $18 million
        20. Cleveland Browns: $17 million
        21. Jacksonville Jaguars: $16 million
        22. San Diego Chargers: $14 million
        23. New York Giants: $11 million
        24. Dallas Cowboys: $10 million
        25. Carolina Panthers: $9 million
        26. Seattle Seahawks: $9 million...
