Declining attendance. Declining TV ratings. That is losing.Please define losing?? Baseball franchise values are going up and continue to go up. You are looking at losing in that you are no longer interested. I've pretty much seen full stadiums the last week watching playoff baseball. Do you know what TBS/ ESPN paid baseball for the rights to all these playoff games?? That's not losing. Sure, WE (and I include us) may not like it, but that's the way it's going to be, regardless of how we feel about it.
Over time, that will lead to smaller TV deals and lower franchise valuations. It won;t be overnight, but the trend is undeniable.
