Dumping salary for prospects (nobodies) and tanking the season versus building for the future: how about ticket rebates?

Maybe if team owners had to rebate the cost savings they achieve by dumping salary for prospects (nobodies) and tanking the season, they'd think twice about it.

One final point that may have entered into this even for the Yankees: salary owed for the remainder of 2016 ...

... a net savings for the Yankee of about... $3.2 million. Subtract from that the peanuts that the Yankees will pay to the prospects and the Yankees are saving a pretty penny, probably more than three million dollars. Hey, you never know.


If a team is moving towards AAA quality, fans should pay AAA prices. Otherwise, stop this nonsensical never ending churning of rosters. How did these dumps from a year ago work for the dumper?

Click and read the names of nobodies received. Only Detroit starter Michael Fulmer has performed well. The dumping teams didn't really give a damn about rebuilding. They were dumping salary and keeping the money they received from their fans who had been duped.
