There's a direct coralation between teams that go over slot and top farm systems. Boston, Yankees, San Fran, Nationals, KC and TB all spend and all have very good or coming up farm systems.
Spending does not cure the inability to develop talent, but don't let that interfere with your perfectly good delusion.
