9 different teams in 14 seasons. No back to back titles. Baseball's "competitive advantage" is a fallacy. As a matter of fact, since the Yankees started buying players, they havent been as successful as they were in the late 90s. And Boston sold off all their high priced guys to the Dodgers two years ago and they won the title this year.

I am a big supporter of the free market. I also do not like not having the chance at building a long sustaining dynasty when you have that once in a lifetime chance.
I'm talking free agents signings. How many free agents would go to Jacksonville if they didn't have the chance to build a competitive team if the "powerhouses" like us, New England, Green Bay, etc. kept on signing players willy nilly without any restrictions? The MLB has some of the absolute worst rosters in professional sports because teams will sign with competitive franchises. I'm not just talking about Super Bowl wins here, either. There are teams in the MLB (the Jays come to mind) who haven't made the playoffs in now a decade.

The MLB has absolutely 0 parity. None. The bottom feeders will continue to be bottom feeders. The exact same thing would happen with the NFL.
