An email exchange between me and my buddy, and fellow Yankees fan, Phil today:
Phil: Can we put the whole “payroll=playoffs” argument to bed? Five of the lowest 10 payrolls are playoff bound…..Rays, Reds, Padres, Rangers and Twins.
Steve: Yup. Astute GMs can put together a playoff contender without having to spend boat loads to get it done.
So, what do you think? Do you agree with Phil? How about me? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section of this entry.
