The draft is in place to try to even the disparity between teams, yet teams like the Yankees still can stock up their farm with elite minor league talent by throwing money at the best international prospects. It just ruins the whole purpose of the draft/FA system.
Even that's not true. The draft doesn't help small market teams at all. The small market teams have to skip the best players and instead take players they can sign. Then the teams that can spend money like that take them later in the draft.
The Yankees roster is rediculous. Us small market fans hope to compete every 3 or 4 years. The Yankees can buy 90 wins EVERY year. Football is a shining example of how a salary cap makes the sport better and keeps players with teams longer.
