Apparently not.

The teams that have the most money are effective.

The teams that have the most runs are efficient.

Effectiveness versus efficiency is a long standing philosophical divide

Moneyball showed that an elegantly efficient team can get the same 
results as an effective team without the same amount of money, thus 
challenging the conventional wisdom.
