Major League Baseball is narrowing down the search for who was behind the leaks of team financial reports that reveal how profitable the Pittsburgh Pirates are despite an 18-year string of losing records, and how much they, the Florida Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays receive in revenue-sharing from wealthier clubs.

Deadspin posted the financial statements of these teams on there site earlier this week and in the process, confirmed what alot of people had thought about small market teams keeping a decent amount of the revenue-sharing for profit.  Case in point, the Florida Marlins and how they sandbagged the taxpayers in the Miami area to get the county to play 3/4's of the bill for there new stadium.
