Re: how many major teams
MPT has pretty much the same team from thier 0-2 AA team from a year ago and they are major. Carucci hasnt teamed up with a million sponsors to buy players and a ring. He does it buy himself, some players who he brought along and made into major players years ago. Other then getting 1 big named player, thier entire team is made up of last years AA players and a few players who were playing A. I know the bought and paid for teams do not like that reality but that is fact. Yes he has a payroll, but nothing like the other 3 and anyone else who says otherwise is flat out lieing. So some teams try to do it the right way so give credit where credit is due and stop hating and pretending thats not reality to make yourselves feel better.
Sponsors take money out of thier own pocket so broke players can have income most have the inability to make in the real world. Without them, whether they choose to blow thier money to purchase a ring or not, its thiers to do what they see fit, so get over it and root for the lower budget underdogs!
