    We all know how this was the first time in over a 100 years the Cubs won the world series and the first time in like 60 years they were even in the world series a couple years ago or so . Well because of the way baseball is set up now that the big market teams are the teams that are always in the playoffs all the time,the small market teams just dont have a prayer anymore these days of having just as much of a chance to go to the world series before the season begins as much as everybody else does.

    small market teams like the padres,Reds,A's,and Twins,they just dont have a fair chance anymore as they used to have to be able to compete to go to the world series anymore.You will never see a small market team such as the A's,Reds,Padres or Twins have a chance of making it to the world series again because the big market teams always have such an unfair advantage every year of going there since they are the ones that always have the money to buy the best talent out there.

    Those days of where the Twins had as much an equal chance to go to the world series and play against the Dodgers as they did in the late 60's or late 80's against the cardinals or the padres against the tigers as they did in the 80's or the A's and Reds did in 1989 ,those days are over with and will never happen again as long as baseball stays the way it is where the small market teams cant compete year after year.

    Because of how baseball is set up now,expect all of those small market teams i mentioned and the others out there as well i did not mention.for THEM to go over a 100 years without even going to the world series to happen as long as baseball stays the way it is now anyways where the big market teams like the dodgers and yankees get to BUY their way into the playoffs year after year and the smalll market teams are always staying home to watch..

    They have to draft right. And they get a lot of draft picks and promising minor leaguers when they trade their better players before they hit free agency. And the players they sign as free agents must produce and be injury free. The local TV contracts are the major difference. Plus there are local advertisers. The Royals are the exception. And it is possible to win. But it is not the rule. Even if the rich teams do not make the playoffs, they can blovk the poorer teams or make it harder for them.

    You mean like the 1991 Twins?

    You mean like the Twins this year, if their pitching didn't crap out in the tail end of the season?

    You mean like the Brewers this year, if they hadn't had a slew of injuries?

    BTW, the Yankees haven't won it all on 10 years.

    I am talking about even getting there for a 100 years. the 1991 twins? your just making my point FOR ME cause that was about the time when it started to become an unfair shift for small and large market teams:abgg2q.jpg:the yankees were at LEAST one game away from the series this year,when was the last time the Twins could say that? not since 1991 thats for sure.LOL .The twins year after year always have an early exit against the yankees in the playoffs, they always won the division title in the 90's and had an early exit all the time against the yankees same as the last two years once they got there, they never got to the playoffs cause they were good,but because the rest of the division is so crappy even worse than them which is the case again.Once they have to play with the big boys that buy the talent,its always an early exit for them.

    The Brewers did not even make it to the national league championship game,okay they came close the year before with the dodgers but they are the exception.

    :thankusmile:

    you so much took him to school.thats getting desperate using the 2015 Royals as an example.:laughing0301::lmao: where have the Royals been SINCE then? I thought so,a loser ever since.:lmao: meanwhile the big market teams,the yankees,astros,dodgers,cardinals and others keep showing up in the playoffs year after year and have a legitimate shot every year.

    the royals just proves my point for me.LOL Look at how bad the royals have been SINCE then?:lmao: same as they were for over 20 years,they are back to drafting players to develop them for other big market teams again same as all other small market teams.:lmao:

    someone is dense that a team like the padres will never be able to have another tony gwen again or the royals another george brett or the reds another pete rose because of how the small market teams cant keep their players since the big market teams are able to easily snatch them up now in this day age.:rolleyes:

    It does not take an Einsten to see that these small market teams will never be able to have another great player like those mentioned that they can build their teams around like that since they now have such an unfair disadvantage being able to compete with the big market teams to afford them.:rolleyes:

    Meanwhile, the World Series is between the Astros and Nationals...their huge-market opponents (LA Dodgers, NY Yankees) having lost already.

    another fact i forgot to mention and taking a certain troll to school with the help of 22lcd of course LOL is to further my point, in this day and age of baseball,since small market teams cant develop and keep a great player like a george brett of the royals anymore or tony gwynn of the padres,they cant compete year after year even if they ARE lucky enough to beat the big market teams in baseball and go and win the world series as the royals did a a few years ago r with the new york mets because unlike back then in the days when brett was playing when all teams had an equal playing field and everyone had as much a chance as the other guy to get to the world series, again they cant keep their great players anymore. how fucking stupid and dense can a certain troll be?:rolleyes:

    this example will go ignored of course just like my last post did but look at Eric Hosmer.he is the closet thing the Royals have had since George Brett of a great exceptional player that players rally around. Well he is not with the royals anymore:rolleyes: so the royals losing their best player they had,a player same as brett was a leader and players rallied around and fed off of,and the fact they lost their other best players due to free agency which has ruined the game for small market teams, they cant go out and do what they were able to do in the 70's and 80's where they could compete year after year to go to the world series since back then in those times,the difference between small market teams and big market teams was not significant at all and everybody was on a a level playing field. jesus christ i should have to explain any of this.:cuckoo:

    the royals after winning their first world series in 85, four years later in 89 they came close to being in the playoffs again but did not advance only cause back then,there was not this stupid wild card that they have now,back then they finished in second place like two games behind the A'S "ANOTHER small market team that went to the world series that year back then."

    The Royals back then could compete year after year in those two decades BECAUSE it was a LEVEL playing field back then and they could KEEP their best players like brett,frank white,and hal mcrae. the royals in this day and age CANT do that because the big market teams can buy the best talent.

    jesus christ someone around here is an idiot,i should not even have to explain this,this is all stuff GRADE SCHOOL STUFF KIDS can understand.:cuckoo::rolleyes:
