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.
Compare for playoff teams, division winners and/or winning seasons over the same period of time.

Teams like the Yankees and Angels dominate while teams like Seattle and Baltimore wallow.
