MLB Year by Year Total Annual Payroll

Description:
Year by year total annual payroll for Major League Baseball.

Data: 
http://www.nsf.gov/about/congress/112/highlights/cu11_0523.jsp

Analysis:
The entire yearly budget for the National Science Foundation is currently set at $6.8 billion.  By the year 2048, the total annual payroll for Major League Baseball will eclipse that, assuming that the NSF budget remains the same.

Questions:
  1. Can MLB keep up this pace?
  2. Are the other professional sports leagues increasing at the same rate?
  3. The MLB payroll appears cyclical - is it due for an uptick?
