I think it's more of a certain sense of fairness in the system. In the NFL, every team works under the same rules and cap no matter how wealthy the owner/franchise is. I'm not sure if a hard cap in MLB works because of all the other facets of the business including the lack of international draft.

That being said, I think well run teams will continue to do well and poorly run teams will continue to be bad no matter the system you have. I just think without a salary cap, you have a higher likelihood of making the playoffs....not necessarily winning a championship.
