An examination of a local newspaper or any police-related publication on any given day will have an article abo

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. A salary cap would serve not to limit how much a player can make. It could more aptly be called a “payroll cap”, since in essence that is what it does; the
