"Franchises such as Kansas City depend on shared money. The Royals received around $50 million last season, $30 million of it from a central fund that distributes money to every team and $20 million from a Robin Hood fund that takes local revenue dollars from the top earners and allocates them to the teams with poor revenue streams. "

The Great Divide

Why can't they put that money towards payroll?

I'm hoping the Torre is out rumors are true. Then my team of choice can waive goodbye to TLR and bring Joe back where he belongs.


Torre isn't going anywhere. TLR is who Cardinal fan is going to be stuck with for at least another season.

Anyone else thing Girardi to the Cubs isn't gonna happen?

A. Glass is cheap, there's no denying that
B. The revenue sharing number will be in the $12-15 million range this year, not 20, and this will be the highest it's ever been
C. Our budget could go up to the $60-65 million range, but spending $20 or even $15 million a year on any one player is a mistake in my opinion. I'd rather Glass makes a little extra right now, as long as when the studs start coming up he's not afraid to pay them.
D. After spending $200 million, the Yankees are now doing the exact same thing as the Royals, watching the playoffs on TV.

That's like KU basketball winning the Big 12 North, big deal, it's what you do in the post season that people remember.

There is no Big 12 North in basketball.

The Braves got the warm reception for winning a weak NL East many many years in a row. Considering it had the Expos, Marlins (strong for 2 years), and Phillies.

I may be mistaken, but I don't believe all of those division titles for the Bravos were in the layout that we currently have. Weren't about half of those when they were in the NL West (or was it the East)before the three division set up when there was a little more competition among the top 3 or so teams in each division?

I agree, it won't happen. For the simple reason that the fans are clamoring for him. The best thing to happen to Girardi is to not get the call.

They'll be looking to sign a relatively no-name former third-base coach that wasn't at any time affiliated with the White Sox. They are now believers, especially since Ozzie Guillen won on the south side, that this is the new formula for success.

Now if I could read A-rod to the Royals. That would be nice. We could put him at ss ship Beroa's ass out of KC and have a legit superstar for the first time since Brett or Bo. I am not saying he makes us a contender but at least we would have a reason to go to the park. So he sucks in the post season so what, we are not going there anyway so it makes no difference! Hey, I am a Royals fan all I have is dreams....let me have it okay.
