Eh, it's not really a shocker that the Lerners are cheap.
I really think this team is on track to do some good things next year and in 2013. Smart manager, good GM, good young players at several positions. They wouldn't need much to put them over the top. It would suck if it's cheap owners that hold them back. I still think we can contend for the wild card even with a low payroll and cheap owners, but it sucks that that's probably the ceiling.
