    I'm trying to figure out where I'd put "lack of a payroll floor." Fans of the O's and Pirates seem to get royally screwed.
    I'd put no payroll floor above the lux tax, maybe even higher. If I was a Pirates fan, I'd put it #1.

    1. Black out rules
    2. No payroll floor
    3. Service time
    4. Low pay for bottom of 26 and 40 man roster players
    5. Slow play
    6. No DH in NL
    7. No robo umps
    8. Lux tax

    @pgammo
    While awaiting some idea from Scott Boras on a way to make rookie service time workable for both sides, remembwe Bobby Grich @Rochester
    , 1970(.383/.503/.570/1.074), 1971(.336/.439/.632/1.071)...
    Orioles won pennants each year. Mark Belanger&Davey Johnson were SS-2B. Grich played short, with Ron Shelton--Bull Durham, Cobb, etc.--at 2B. If Grich had played 150 G for O's those two years, would he be in the HOF?

    They chose... poorly.
