Correction, I came in this thread bashing a stoner for being unoriginal, then you for reporting on it like it was news.

Any questions on that part?

As a baseball player with an actual reason to celebrate (i.e. World Champs)?

Yes.

Typical phillies fan...this story is unimpressive and should be mocked because a philly said the F word first. (Waits for random stats to prove my post wrong)

Money doesn't guarantee success.

Source: mlb.com

Major League Baseball teams are proving it this postseason as only three of the teams among the top 10 in league payroll (Yankees, Phillies, Giants) made the playoffs.

That's the fewest teams of the heavy spenders to make the playoffs in the last decade.

It's also the first time since baseball added the Wildcard in 1995 that at least four playoff teams came from the bottom half of payrolls (Braves, Reds, Rays, Rangers).

So what has happened?

Well, the truth is, nothing really. Despite the perception of not having parity, baseball actually has the most parity of any sport. Over the last 30 years, Major League Baseball has had 19 different teams win the World Series. Compare that to the number of teams over the same period of time that won the Super Bowl (16), Stanley Cup (14) and the NBA title (8).

In the last 30 years, 25 different teams have played in the World Series. That's only topped by the NFL, which has 26 teams that have played in the Super Bowl over that time period. And that's without a salary cap.

Spending more money in Major League Baseball does make it easier. According to a paper by two Northeastern University professors, Frederick Wiseman and Sangit Chatterjee, the difference in the average number of games won between teams whose payrolls were in the top quartile and those teams whose payrolls were in the bottom quartile was almost 15 games between 1998-2002.

But over the last decade, if your team is among the top 10 payrolls in the game, your team only has a 46 percent chance of making the postseason. Check out the chart below of teams in the top 10 payrolls that have made it.

* 2001: 6 of top 10 (Yankees, Indians, Braves, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Mariners)
* 2002: 4 of top 10 (Yankees, Braves, Giants, Diamondbacks)
* 2003: 4 of top 10 (Yankees, Red Sox, Giants, Braves)
* 2004: 5 of top 10 (Yankees, Red Sox, Angels, Dodgers, Cardinals)
* 2005: 5 of the top 10 (Red Sox, Angels, Yankees, Cardinals, Braves)
* 2006: 5 of the top 10 (Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, Cardinals)
* 2007: 4 of top 10 (Red Sox, Angels, Yankees, Cubs)
* 2008: 6 of the top 10 (Angels, Red Sox, White Sox, Cubs, Dodgers, Phillies)
* 2009: 5 of the top 10 (Yankees, Angels, Red Sox, Dodgers, Phillies)
* 2010: 3 of the top 10 (Yankees, Phillies, Giants)
Edit:

oh and just for fun I compiled these numbers. (they don't take into consideration any money that other teams are paying them, but I just find it interesting.)

1. Roy Halladay $15,750,000
2. Roy Oswalt $ 15,000,000
3. Cole Hamels $ 6,650,000 (Home Grown)
==================
Top 3 starters $37.4 Mil

vs

1. CC Sabathia $ 24,285,714
2. Phil Hughes $ 447,000 (Home Grown)
3. Andy Pettitte $ 11,750,000 (Home Grown)
==================
Top 3 starters $36.4 Mil

vs

1. Tim Lincecum $ 9,000,000
2. Johnathan Sanchez $ 2,100,000
3. Matt Cain $ 4,583,333
==================
Top 3 starters $15.6 Mil

vs

1. Cliff Lee $ 9,000,000
2. CJ Wilson $ 3,100,000
3. Colby Lewis $ 1,750,000
==================
Top 3 starters $13.8 Mil

Which is probably why we'll win it all this year...three(3) #1 starters, best in all of baseball arguably.

You are "buying a championship", how does that make you feel?
