Pettitte turned down more money from the Yanks to play in Hoston. It's not like the 'stros went out and said "Hmmmmmmmmm, who can we buy for millions of dollars so we have the bst team in the world?". It was Pettitte's decision. And that's why Rocket went too.

Football, on the other hand, has national revenues. I agree that there should be some kind of cap, at least better than what is in place now. I also think that there should be a minimum cap. If you are going to take the Yankees for going over $115 million or whatever it is, then what are you going to do for a club that doesn't even spend $20 million? I think that the latter is a bigger problem.
