Baseball needs a salary cap — and a salary floor

Opinion: Salary cap, floor would help St. Louis Cardinals MLB baseball team and fix the sport's economic and money issues with free agent players.

Cardinal fans deserved better this offseason

With mere days to go before the start of spring training, it appears the St. Louis Cardinals front office leaders meant it when they said that they didn’t see the team making any more significant additions to the roster before camp started.

The Cubs and Astros won by doing it, but tanking is still bad for baseball

It seems nearly a third of the teams in the majors have punted the 2018 season, making no effort to compete for a playoff spot in a season that hasn’t even started. This isn’t what the commissioner’s office had in mind when it created one, and then a second, wild-card spot in each league a few years ago. Everyone was supposed to have a chance every year.

While the Brewers work to get better, the Cardinals are doing nothing

I should say it’s embarrassing for the fans. I don’t think the Cardinals’ front office seems to care at all what happens around it. We’ve already been told not to expect any major moves before spring training. It’s just hard to take it sitting down when the team the Cardinals were going to have to battle for second place and a wild-card berth, the Milwaukee Brewers, goes out and makes two big splashes.

Is this slow offseason a sign of a coming labor war?

While some agents contend that collusion is to blame for the deep freeze that has caused players like J.D. Martinez and Eric Hosmer to struggle to find contracts close to what players of their ilk have landed in recent off-seasons, it seems fairly obvious that advanced metrics have caused teams to be more resistant than ever to paying hitters and pitchers past their prime.
