my research paper is about free agency in major league baseball and if it effects the competitive balance in baseball.

the yankees have a 180 million dollar payroll and the devil rays close to a 30 million dollar payroll. some critics its hard for the low budget teams to compete with the high budget teams and the yanks will always get the best free agents. my paper focuses on trying to prove in fact if this is a legitimate problem in major league baseball.

my original question was about preferences; some fans like to go to the game and just to do something; hangout whatever the case maybe and just chill. other fans have a favorite team and they root for them and get pissed if they lose and excited when they win. and i was just wondering what kind of fans you guys were.

some owners value winning whereas others value making a profit. thats why when you see a team in the second half realize they have no chance for the post season they will dump some good players to be compensated financially while the winning teams get the player who they think will help them get to that next level.

from my research team payroll has no effect on the competitiveness of major league baseball........if anyone really cares to know why i can always send you guys something explaining it.

cheers.........
