I get what you're saying Chief and I agree that even if you handed the Twins a 360M pot of revenue you still wouldn't see it spent like this...but all that said, that's a huge advantage to have. One the Twins would be out of their minds to try and match at 60% of the revenue the Red Sox make.
It's why I'm so irked by the way baseball handles revenues and the wild imbalances it can cause.
I think it's more than just the money...
One team looks at the situation and tries to figure out how to get better, immediately. One team wants to "build this thing the right way."
One team looks for answers. One looks for excuses. One looks to find ways to get it done, one seems to look for reasons it can't.
One team isn't afraid to make big moves, which might mean big mistakes. One team seems to look first at the downside of any potential move.
One team tries to make the payroll fit the players it needs. One tries to make the players fit the payroll it wants.
