Money does grow on trees in professional sports. All you have to do is look at contracts that teams dole out every season that make fans scratch their heads and swear at their computers until steam shoots out of their ears.

Teams like the Mariners, Dodgers, Rangers, Tigers  and Yankees have been notoriously bad in spending their money. The Yankees can afford it. The Mariners and Rangers can't.

On the other hand, teams like the Marlins, Padres, Pirates, Twins and Astros have been on the opposite end of the spectrum. I suppose it's easy to spend your money wisely if you pretty much ignore trying to sign virtually any free agents. That's one approach.
