A touch of anger
For those of us not convinced that our management and front office has been mishandling our payroll, prospects and resources while trying to build this team, check out this interesting chart created by a man named Ben Fry. Using the simple comparison of salary vs. performance, it's pretty obvious that we're not getting our money's worth [Chicago Cubs : 25th best record in MLB, 7th highest payroll].
It's especially embarrassing when you consider that teams like Cincinnati [5th best record, 23rd highest payroll] and even St. Louis [3rd best record, 14th highest payroll] are crushing us in the NL Central right now. Sigh.
