Salary Cap
Salary Cap The issue of a salary cap is one that has troubled Major League Baseball for over a decade now, dating back to before the labor strike of 1994. It is my belief that a salary cap is necessary for baseball to continue to thrive and profit while maintaining its current league set up. A salary cap, I believe, is somewhat of a misnomer.
