MLB is allowed to operate as a monopoly. Even assuming that the Forbes numbers are accurate, Loria can't turn them into cash unless he sells the outfit.

 

Don't hold your breath.

 

Meanwhile, he has to operate according to the numbers on the ground, which weren't good last year and will probably be poor this year.

 

The good news for '14 is that TV central fund income will go up about 25 mill and they'll have to pay about 8.5 mill less for guys who aren't here. 33 mill adds some flexibility.

Flexibility for what? (It's rhetorical so no response needed)...

1) Stuffing his pockets with filthy lucre

2) Screwing over fans just for fun

3) Cackling over having taken tourists who pay the hotel bed tax for a ride

4) Looting someone or other

5) Trading players for no reason

6) Second-guessing managers just because he can

 

Did that cover it?

Facetiousness aside, yes, that covers it.
