The Yankees have asked themselves why they must spend so much for players, while other teams, such as the Tampa Bay Rays, can win for much less by making hard choices.
|Scooped by Nicholas Ryan Casey|
1.) What did you learn from this article?
I learned that the Yankees continue to spend big year after year, while the Tampa Bay Rays play the new phenomenon called Money Ball. There payroll for this year was only around 34 Million Dollars. Also I learned that their is a Luxuary tax in Baseball if you pay over 189 million dollars a year they must pay a tax.
2.) What infomation did you find intresting from this article?
I found it very intresting that the Tampa Bay Rays would rather trust their scouting network, coaching, and General Manager staff to make the right decisions with money choosing the option to build a team from the ground up rather than purchase one. The Yankees buy superstars, Tampa Bay buys veterans that are cheap and makes superstars on their own.
3.) Why did I select this?
I recentley saw money ball and I thought this was nearly the same thing that was going on in the real life Major League Baseball.
4.) How will this help me in the Sport Management Industry?
This will help me in the Sport Management Industry by showing myself that you need to be resposible financially and work hard scouting and coaching to be sucessfull in the world of sports or sport team success that is.
