Washington's #2 in operating income, earning $42M. Those cheap f*cking bastards. Even worse is Florida, who puts out the lowest payroll, cries about having to send players to arbitration and would rather get rid of them instead of paying them, yet still make $43M on $139M in revenue for a ridiculous margin of close to 30%.

This makes me sick, frankly. I may never buy season tickets again. I'm sure this will get the message boards on NatsJournal firing..

I think its time to implement some salary constraints in baseball. I think its shameful that the Florida marlins are able to get luxury tax revenue from the other clubs.
