Here is the entire baseball session. First are what are called exhibition games, or the preseason games. Then the season starts. In the middle of the season is the All-Star Game and the Home Run Derby. Then the second half of the season is played. Now comes the post season: The American/National League Division Series The American/National League Championship Series The World Series
You start out when you play in college in the minor leagues. Then if you're good enough and get noticed, you may get put into the draft of whatever sport. Then, when the draft comes around, if you are picked by a major league team, you are officially in the major leagues. Then you make a lot of money :).
The major league teams are very competitive and close when it comes to overall talent. For instance, take a look at the 2012 contenders in the American League East. The division could become even tighter in 2013 as a result of the Toronto Blue Jays' recent acquisition of star players from the Miami Marlins.

The term 'purchase a player's minor league contract' comes from the days before the major league teams controlled the minor league teams. Minor league teams used to be independent entities that had no affliation with a major league team. They negotiated their player's contracts and paid their salaries. The players were employees of the minor league team. If a major league team wanted a player from the minors to be on their team they would have to negotiate a purchase price with the minor league team's owner. Today, even though they play in the minors, a minor leaguer is an employee of the major league team. The major league team negotiates the minor leaguer's contract and pays their salary. The minor league team owner pays team expenses. If a major league team wants a minor leaguer in their system to come up to their team, they simply tell the minor league owner that they are going to 'call up' the player. That player will be replaced by another player in the system. So the term 'purchase the contract' is not really accurate in today's game.
