I was not speaking for the Yankees. There are 31 other teams, and about what-24 of them aren't the "big spenders".
Well, I was, which is why I mentioned Steinbrenner. How about answering the question instead of deflecting and talking about other teams when my allegation is it's the Yankees that are the problem?

A salary cap only puts more money in the owners pockets.
Not necessarily. It's often tied to revenue and comes with spending floors.

If my Yankees were in and winning something like 70-80 percent of the WS's, then I would have a problem with it. But they aren't.
That's a straw man measurement. How about "in playoff contention 90% of the time"?

Personally, I want every scout that works for the A's to come work for the Yankees. Really, how good are they?
Maybe you can buy them too. My point was market shouldn't determine such a large percentage of competitive success. Smart decision-making by smart people should.

Is that an "unfair advantage"?
No. That's a fair advantage.
