Dear Major League Baseball-

You suck. You continue to allow the game to devolve into the haves and have nots with big market teams with bottomless checkbooks competing with small market teams on a shoestring budget. Shame on you for being complicit in killing what was once America's game.
I must have forgotten the 90s Indians.

Also, in my lifetime, the State of Missouri has 5 WS Titles.

Don't blame the system. Blame the Organ-I-zation not getting it done.

Agreed in part. Guys like Dolan want to buy a Ferrari and run it on regular gas and the cheapest tires they can find. They bear some responsibility.

That being said, MLB needs to figure out a way to balance the financial playing field through revenue sharing or a salary cap or something else creative. Until they do, teams like the Indians lose guys from Albert Belle to Jim Thome to CC Sabathia to Francisco Lindor... while the big money rich teams just buy them up.
