Let's all take a collective sigh of sorrow to recognize the most underprivileged organization in baseball... the Boston Red Sox.
News out of spring training camp features the Red Sox' owner John Henry talking about how baseball needs to implement a salary cap.
Apparently, Henry is unhappy that his small market budget couldn't compete with the Yankees when they signed Mark Teixeira, C.C. Sabathia and A.J. Burnett.
Well cry me a river, Henry. I didn't hear any such talk about a cap when your BoSox were spening more money than the Florida Marlins' payroll just to TALK to Dice K. I didn't hear a peep from you about a cap when you shelled out $10 million per year to starting pitcher Josh Beckett.
So save it, Henry. You are obviously not concerned with dishing out the cash. And you are apparently only concerned about a salary cap when you are falling victim to the Yankees' steep payroll.
