except the astros have one of the better teams in the league right now

but anyway i mostly agree, a salary cap in the mlb would be great but it's unlikely

the lack of competition is why i'll never enjoy the mlb and much as the nhl but it's still fun to watch and i've followed the jays since i was a kid no matter how shit they were

i hope one of the jays, pirates, royals, astros, mets win in the next while though as there definitely seems to be more parity right now

it won't last though

small budget teams can maybe only have success cyclically (wait for cost-controlled core of players to get good, sell the farm to make the most of that window), but i wouldn't go so far as to say that parity is going to go away

exactly

greater parity these days may result from higher impact from younger players but inevitably without a salary cap budget teams will lose these players to free agency in time, most times
