Only 3 of last 10 yrs did #1 NLE payroll team make the playoffs.
(That's 7 out of 10 times from 2003 - 2012 #1 NLE payroll team sat home & watched the playoffs)

2006- Mets

2010 - Phillies

2011 - Phillies


No WS wins for #1 NLE payroll team. No WS appearances for #1 NLE payroll team.
(2008 Phils had #3 NLE payroll behind Mets & Braves)





Where's the proof that spending bigger will help Mets get to playoffs?

maybe not proof , but it would be a lot more fun to talk about them , and they would not be so worried about the 10th pick in the draft.

Maybe if they used those Publishers Clearing House sized checks?

Those are pretty big.

Look across town for proof that spending buys you a better chance of a Championship? In the last 5 yrs Tampa Bay has the same number of division titles as the Yankees. With about 1/4 of their payroll!!

And in last 12 yrs Yankees have ONE WS Championship. Same 12 yrs Cardinals have TWO WS Championships. With HALF the Yankees payroll!
