lacydog: The Indians *have* spent money to make their team better. They were arguably the biggest spender in the 2012-2013 offseason, signing Bourn and Swisher, and they've invested in their own players, locking up their core so that nobody of value is leaving for at least 4 years (Swish and Bourn might be gone by then, but it's arguable whether they're "of value" right now).Granted, not all of that has worked out. And they look awesome because Masterson turned down their contract offer and then immediately went to shiat (hooray for dodged bullets!). But cheapness does not describe the team right now. The problem is more that the players they spent all that money on are doing crappy.

tampaflacouple: I'm guessing the Rays are the lowest in attendance and payroll? I am sure the Rays owners must have some sort of out clause in thier stadium lease concerning attendance. I wish they would move to some city that cares about baseball. The problem is the Rays are up against a day at the beach. Which of course we all know is better than most anything.
