This is a clever way to show the link between baseball records and baseball salaries. Use the bar at the top to play out the whole season and watch teams' records fluctuate. How much does salary matter? Not all that well, apparently. There are a bunch of teams in the bottom 10 of payroll who are doing well (Colorado, Arizona, Cincinatti), and teams with high payrolls (Cubs, Anaheim/L.A.) who are doing poorly. (Thanks for the link, Ian!) ben
