First I felt like slitting my wrist when I read this:

"Sometimes in baseball it's better being the underdog because you can sneak up on somebody," Pittsburgh outfielder Matt Lawton said. "It's been like this the last couple of years, but the deal's up in 2006 and, hopefully, we can get something done (to make it better) but without a salary cap. Nobody wants that."

Then I kept going, and I read this:

"I think the playing field economically is better," commissioner Bud Selig said. "Certainly we have work to do, but it's better than it was 10 years ago. I look at places like Detroit, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, and there's excitement everywhere."

Arghhhh, I'm running out of appendages!
