Why are baseball salaries falling?

Because the profitability of winning has fallen with increases in revenue sharing:

“If you’re at the top, and you’re going to have to share more of your revenue with low-revenue teams, then maybe you’re less willing to pay on hiring that new player,” Bradbury tells Deadspin. (Revenue sharing, in case you’re wondering, operates like a marginal tax even on low-income teams’ revenues, since the size of their checks dwindles for each additional dollar they earn themselves.

In fact, economists had predicted that salaries would eventually fall:

“A lot of us in academia wrote about that and actually told the players’ association that that was going to be the effect,” says Stanford sports economist Roger Noll. “And they didn’t really believe us, because they thought that salaries were driven simply by total income, not by the increment to income driven by a player.”

  3. I'm selling Western Union , Bank and Paypal Transfers all over the world.
    USA,UK,EU,Canada, Australia, Russia, Netherlands, China, Malaysia, France, Thailand, Ukraine. I'm getting much stuff through emails but also have a big experience in botnets etc. I've got 5 western union main computers data with the help of a strong botnet. Now I can change the info of a WU MTCN and can redirect any payment on any name. Simply I change the receiver name and country and payment goes to that person to whom i want to send. If anyone want to make big and instant money than contact me for deal. We do reliable work and give good service to all our clients. We make our clients for long time business. First we prove our work then make a deal.

    Info needed for WU Transfers / Money Gram:-

    Price List For WU Transfer / Money Gram / Paypal / Bank Transfer:

    If anyone want to do regular business with me then you must have many bank accounts, Paypal, Money bookers and fake ids for western union because after 2 or 3 transfers in a week your Paypal and WU receiver details can be black listed or banned. So think before deal. Make big transactions and get a side and give other peoples chance or try to gather many fake accounts and work with me on regular basis.
