There has been one team (2003 FLA) outside of Oak and Minn to make the playofffs with a payroll below #17, with only 4 teams below #13 in the last 5 years. So how do you make the playoffs witha below average payroll?
1. Play in a league with all low payrolls (AL Cental)
2. Be fortunate and draft/develop many young arms and have most of them pan out and have most every trade/FA signing be solid. (Oak, Fla)
3. Have some "flash in the pan" success (Florida) but then force disbandment due to lack of funds in the future (derek lee, mike lowell, josh beckett, jaun pierre, aj burnett, ivan rodriguez, ugueth urbina, carl pavano, brad penny)
