the salary cap pretty much has to happen at the same time... because why would a big market owner agree to profit sharing when a smaller owner will just use that money to jack up the market price without having any real parity impact.
profit sharing without a salary cap still leave the world series up for the highest bidder.
nope, we need a salary cap of about 65 million and complete media based profit sharing.
then baseball can be successfull in any market that has good fan support.
