In 2013 Oakland won its division spending only $723,333 per win and only $38 per ticket sold.  The Yankees spent the most for each: $2,894,644 and $75.  Among the tournament teams, St. Louis spent the least per ticket sold, only $33, and made the finals.  Boston won the tournament but spent $63 doing it, still less than the Dodgers ($68).  Cleveland spent a surprisingly high $56 per ticket sold for its ill fated wild card spot.

In the eleven season from 2003 through 2013 a team payroll of at least $100 million has been spent in 91 of the 330 team seasons: 27.5%.

Yankees 11 of 11
Red Sox 10
Mets 9
Angels 9
Dodgers 7
White Sox 7
Tigers 6

Cardinals and Giants only three times each; they each won two championships.

In 22 of the 330 team seasons $150 million has been spent:

Yankees 11 of 11
Red Sox 3
Phillies 3
Mets 2
Dodgers 2
Tigers 1

Only two teams spending at least $150 million have won the championship: Yankees in 2009 and the Red Sox in 2013.  The Dodgers in 2013 have the top team salary ever followed by the Yankees with the next ten since 2003.  Here are those 22 team seasons:

Dif %: (winner's payroll -loser's payroll) / winner's payroll.
Dif $: higher payroll / lower payroll; for each dollar spent by the team with the lower payroll, the other team spent the amount shown, which is essentially a ratio.

The Yankees in 2003 had the biggest payroll advantage, a whopping 209% and outspending 3 to 1, but still lost to Florida in six games.  In these eleven seasons the only other teams with a payroll advantage to lose were:
- Detroit 11.7% in 2012
- Houston 2.1% in 2005.

Eight of the eleven winners had the payroll advantage.

Boston's payroll advantage in its three wins: 33.75%, 62.22%, 36.73%.  The Red Sox outspent its finals opponents by these ratios: 1.5, 2.7, 1.6.  The Red Sox should not be casting any stones at big spenders, evil or otherwise.  That 62%/2.7 edge over Colorado in 2007 was second only to the Yankees huge advantage in 2003.
