Yes, but revenue-wise, every team pulls in $200 million plus because of the TV contracts. So even teams in markets that are small population-wise still have plenty of money to spend on players.

Is tanking bad for baseball?

In my opinion, tanking is bad for baseball for two reasons:

1) It reduces the number of teams in contention for the playoffs.

2) It doesn't usually work.

They already store cards for owners, and it probably would only take a few good coders to add on a way for owners to sell partial shares in their cards.
