2008 MLB Payrolls; Guess Who is #2

I read in the local paper this morning about MLB payrolls. I was surprised to find the Tigers second. Here are the numbers of the top teams.

1 (1) Yankees $209,081,579

2 (9) Tigers     $138,685,197

3 (3) Mets        $138,293,378

4 (2) Red Sox $133,440,037

5 (4) Whi Sox $121,152,667 

6 (5) Angels    $119,216,333 

16 (23) Tribe   $78,970,067   

1) the three teams the tribe is competing with for 3 playoff spots are 1,2, and 4 in payroll. 2) It is not just a Yankees-Red Sox duopoly anymore. 3) The Tigers have really jumped; a Tigers fan told me that this is because now there is a salary cap in hockey, so Illitch is spending his cash on the Tigers instead of the RedWings. 4) Even though the Tigers have been the main competition for the tribe the last 2 years, I've never really despised them like the Yankees and Red Sox, as they were kind of in the same boat as the tribe. Not anymore! I can now despise them for their unfair competitive advantage.
