The biggest thing I learned is compared with the top 30 players of the NBA and MLB the MLB has higher paid players and an average higher salary. The question of inquiry was answered as the MLB has a higher average player salary compared with the NBA. There are no sources of bias in the data as postseason salary bonuses aren't included for MLB and both contain each leagues top 30 players.
