Baseball is raking in cash, but there are storm clouds on the horizon


Over at NBC Sports I wrote about the massive disconnect that exists between the stuff that wins baseball games and the stuff that makes baseball teams money. At present, the business arrangements of the league mean that teams can stink on ice yet still rake in cash while winning doesn’t do that much for the bottom line. 

It’s an out-of-whack incentive structure that is bad for the game in both the short term and the long-term.
