OK, 'bout time to start this I guess (I went looking for it and couldn't find it) The reason I went looking was because I just noted ... the Yankees are currently under the competitive balance tax limit for 2018, AND their payroll is currently ... 7th !! The Dodgers also have dipped under the tax limit. This smells of two teams wanting to "reset" their tax levy % to 0, so that when they go over in 2018 (which should be a FA class full of studs) they won't pay the 50% rate, which they would have as multi-year repeaters of being over the threshold. The Giants are desperately trying to do the same, I wager.
