It would make the team much much better overall.
That won't change much.

There is still a big difference between 120 mill and 50 mill.

Again, it all comes down to revenue sharing.

Cap is worthless if there isn't a good revenue sharing plan in place.

a 50 to 60 million dollar team can win it. It would bring the bottom up and remove the ceiling and bring a happy medium I think.

Agreed about the revenue sharing to be fixed to actually work and assist though.

Yes, I know they could win it. Like I've said both Marlins and Angels won championships while having less then 1/3 of Yankees payroll. In the case of the Marlins it was more like 1/4.

I'm just saying, with 120 mill cap there would still be a BIG difference in payrolls.

Unless the revenue sharing increases substancially.

Yes and 45-50 million is a very low floor. Only 5 teams have payrolls less than 50 and only 3 teams less than 45. Also a cap of 120 wouldn't work at all. With a 120 cap baseball would set the Yankees back at least 3 or 4 years while almost everyone else would be right where they are now. The only way a cap could be instituted would be keeping it high (say 180) and then lowering it by 10 each year until it gets down to about 100. Then they can do like the NFL and re-raise it by a little each year. A cap of 120 would just kill the Yankees. They'd have to cut almost 80 million from their payroll. The Red Sox would have to cut around 100,000 or so. No one else would have to do anything. The only thing that could ever logically work is with full revenue sharing and a cap and floor getting closer together for a few years. You'd probably have to see something start out at 180 and 40. And then get closer and closer each year (Going by 10-20 million each year, like 160-50 : 140-60 : 120-70 : 100-80). It'd be unfair to force a few teams to dramatically increase/decrease in one year.
