On the research topic of major league baseball our goal is to research the dependence of salary, wins, and how many attend the games on an average. The issue is do salaries and overall team revenue based on wins or individual talent. Through research this question of is does the overall team salary depend on one more than the other. Is one factor more important than the next.

They tie with wins with the Yankees at 95 wins. So there’s a problem with dependency among the 29 major league teams and how they get the team salary from the data.
