Baltimore has really been hurting since the Montreal Expos became the Washington Nationals. The Orioles used to have a monopoly on baseball in the Maryland / DC / Virginia area. Add in that the Nationals have had a more competitive team over the past several years and a large number of fans are jumping off the Baltimore bandwagon to root on the Nationals.

No MLB owner is going to sell at a loss, so they're all fine.  They just keep getting money from NY, Boston, and L.A. like welfare queens until they decide to sell at a huge profit.  Fuck any of them preaching poverty.

The Marlins were just sold for $1.2 billion. The guy who sold the franchise paid $158.5 million for it.

Now that's  making money!

The books probably show a 'loss' over the years though (hilariously)

Too bad for them. Washington DC is one of the oldest baseball markets in this country and it was a shame that they were without a team for so long thanks to the shenanigans of Peter Angelos

Yeah, if the Orioles weren't able to build up enough of a fanbase in the 35 years or so that they had the market to themselves, then that's their problem.  There's really no excuse that not only did the D.C. fans bail, but many fans in the surrounding areas prefer the Nationals too.  They're clearly a more exciting team.

The Phillies owners paid $30m in 81, I think. Gotta be worth $2B now. Pretty damn good investment.

$1.7B? OK, I guess I would take that. Around $800m of that is Middleton. Still a lot of other families involved. The charter reads that no one can own 50.0% or more.

If MLB wants increase attendence bring back juiced balls and the steroids boys. They saved the league last time.

Blue Jays sucking hard. Down several thousand fans per game. Painful to watch. God awful team this season. Pitching which was supposed to be astrength has been abysmal.

7 teams under 20,000 fans a game


White Sox, Cleve, Cincy, Pitt, Oakland, Tampa and Miami


Marlins at 10,000 a game


Low viewership has turned into low attendance

Florida can't even support 1 team and Tampa needs to move.  Miami needs to be given a chance to see what Jeter can do.  It's the first 2 months of his re-building project and the fans are just pissed that he gutted the team (again) but you have to see where it goes over the next 2 years.
