How to stick it to both the players and owners on salaries.

MLB could establish both a minimum and maximimum team salary. A minimum must be set to prevent teams from spending the minimum, $400,000 * 25 = $10,000,000. Let's say seventy to one hundred million dollars.
However, have the players decide who gets what. No more individual contracts.
Players know who is worth the money. Players know who is dogging it.
If players want management to acquire more talent the players themselves would need to decide who might have his salary lowered to pay the new guy. Or the new guy would need to take less to play with better players than those on his previous team.
Both players and owners would need to think like the other. Both would feel the pain and watch the bottom line.
