So I guess I want to ask the question of the cafe; would you rather watch a franchise dominate the sport for several years (doesn't have to be the Yankees folks ), or rather have what's going on now, which is 7 different champs in the last 7 years??
Different champs is definitely better. It keeps fans everywhere involved. If you see the title passing around including to teams that have not won in many people's lifetimes, you do think "why not us?", which helps teams draw fans/viewers/listeners and for those teams to hopefully reinvest in themselves. While I'd prefer teams spend it on player development rather than FAs, either way improves their team if done right, makes it more competitive and improves the quality on the field, at least generally. Very theoretical, I know, but I think different champs helps more than one team dominating and more
other teams breaking spring training thinking they have no shot. That's going to happen regardless, but I think it will happen less with more champs.
That's some soap box I just climbed down from
