Thread: Salary cap discussion

    Re: Salary cap discussion

    ...My batters come to the plate, most of them are holding the bat by the wrong end, and their stats show the result... Most of my pitchers are throwing their glove instead of the ball, and the opposing teams still knock it out of the park....
    ...The players say they have no confidence, no one to say, "Try this", or "Maybe you should put your cap on your head..."
    ...The dugout is empty, there is no batting coach, no pitching coach in the bullpen. Even the sportswriters have no idea what to write. "This team shows an incredible lack of no potential", said one. Another chimed in with, "The team has all the tools they need in the shed, now all they need is a garden to work them in..., but boy, do they have some good seeds of doubt to gain confidence in their lack of ability. Now, if only someone knew how to plant them."
    ...With all the confusion going on in the game, its hard to justify taking a hard line right now. If things settle out, take another look then...

    So over half the league is over 55 million... and thankfully some of the teams at the bottom did add some salary. So, I'm going to only drop the cap by 5 million, make decisions accordingly. Next seasons salary cap is 60 million (not 55) it is a soft cap, so each owner can comply or not. This may (or may not) make the FA list a bit stronger, so all teams with cap room take notice.

    Ok ok, I've re-reread input and been thinking about this a bit more. Not a whole lot has changed with salary, overall. Many batters decreased initially but many pitchers have gone up as well. The motivation for lowering cap is to benefit lower salaried teams, with the intent for parity. However, with such little input (league wide) the change could cost YY some owners, with so much going wrong in the game lately it wouldn't take much to chase folks away... not worth the risk.
    So nevermind, disregard, no change. Salary cap stays as is.
    Thanks Joe!
