Imagine an NBA where the Lakers and Celtics have a monopoly on all elite young talent coming out of Asia and get to offer Lebron as well as several other top free agents a maximum contract next year. Thats basically the MLB right now.
How do you figure? How many Randy Johnson are there? CC will be good for a few more seasons, but the likely hood of him being a top pitcher for 7 seasons is slim. The Indians, and Brewers more than likely got CC's best years. The Marlins got Burnetts best years.
Baseball is a young mans game, and all the top prospects are all over the league right now. Not too many are wearing pin stripes, hell the Red Sox have better young talent IMO.
BTW, Lakers have Pau, Kobe, Bynum. Celtics have PP, Allen, and Garnett. The NBA is very top heavy because of this, and IMO it will suffer for it. But baseball isn't the NBA, and just becuase you get the players with the best stats, doesn't mean you have the best players.
