Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Some will argue that salary caps are for budget balancing. Others will argue it means one team can't horde players (Unless you're the Yankees and you pay a tsk tsk fee every year).

From Swish Appeal:
When Swish Appeal spoke with Phoenix Mercury General Manager Ann Meyers-Drysdale in December she indicated that the team would be hard pressed to return it's entire 2009 championship roster due to financial constraints resulting from a $52,000 reduction in this year's salary cap.

We have since learned from league and team sources that the Mercury situation may be worse than originally reported.
