Now, Houston Astros owner Drayton McLane adds his two cents:
Enough with the salary cap nonsense.First of all, like Mr. McLane said the players' association will never go for it. And second, the Yankees spending hasn't really gotten them much. The last time I checked the Yankees hadn't won a World Series since 2000, so this whole idea of buy championships is nonsense. When the Yankees win 10 World Series in a row, then you can start bitching about the league needing a salary cap, until then, shut up. Move on and find something else to worry about. How about your own teams for example?
Astros owner Drayton McLane is one of the wealthiest men in the country and is accustomed to hearing about multimillion-dollar deals being made in any of his numerous business ventures.
But even McLane finds himself astonished at the kinds of cash the New York Yankees have been throwing around this winter. So much so that McLane said he would be in favor of Major League Baseball adopting a salary cap.
“We would love to have a salary cap, but the (players’) union has been very resistant to that,” McLane said this past week.
