    Bob,

    Thanks for keeping an open mind.

    Personally, I would be fully against a cap. Take the Yankees, whom make around $250M available for their Major League team. Put the cap at even as high as $150M and the Yankees still have $100M to spend. While the club could put this money in their pockets and walk away, that clearly is not the ownerships modus operandi.

    So now take this additional money, and spread it over other areas. While the Yankees won't sign the Sabathia's at the end of their prime, they will have them for their developmental years. The Yankees will have the best rehab technologies, the best player evaluation methods.

    In other words, we are lucky that the Yankees are more concerned with winning now then anything else. If the club was willing to take 3 or 4 years off, say 'rolling the dice' in Yankees terms, we'd be talking about a dynasty that could last as long as the Bengals have sucked.
