I don't understand why a high payroll = a bum on the street could manage a MLB team. Your logic makes NO SENSE.
Seriously, you are saying payroll doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things? If that's true, why haven't KC and Pittsburgh been competitive for the past 20 years? Why are the MOST of the high payroll teams in the hunt ALMOST every year while the low payroll teams squeek in sporatically?
High payroll does not guarantee a world series appearance, but it certainly helps a ton.
