wont be close.

considering i honestly have no idea which way you're leaning when you say that, I think it will be.

Stanton WAR through age 27 season: 35.1

Cabrera WAR through age 27 season: 32.5

it has nothing to do with overspending on the franchise, it has to do with a franchise that was losing money every year.  If Mas would have kept the team in tact he would just have been putting off the inevitable like Loria has been doing for about 2 or 3 years now.

 

And ya, new owners go out and try to get more investors.  That's kind of how things are done.

Wow, talk about being blind. It has EVERYTHING to do with that. They took on 400 mil in debt service. That was unnecessary considering the team is at best worth about 700-800mil. Sherman''s plan is obvious for those who him. He cut payroll since those savings will go to pay off the debt. The plan is to keep expenses low as possible while the debt is paid off, ride the resurgence of baseball with higher revenue sharing from considering the team as as a low market even if they are not to get a bigger share of the pie, then rework TV deal to get more money, which won't be that much as they want considering the product on the field, then  add the naming rights.  Wait for the debt to be paid off or significantly reduced then flip the team. If they can sell it for even 900 mil they win.  

If you want to believe this is the recipe for a successful product on the field, you're welcome to it. 

And yes investors are sought after a certain period of time for expansion projects or down turns in the business, not immediately after purchase.

because i can see how the best teams in baseball do it, and it is nothing like how the marlins have been doing it for going on 15 years now and especially the last 5 or 6 years of ignoring the draft and IFA and in turn having a terrible farm system which in turn leads to spending huge sums of free agent money on average players like Prado, Volquez, Chen, Ziegler, and Tazawa.

And what makes you so sure that this piece of shit Jeter knows how to do this?  He's never done it before.  So far he has botched everthing he's done including this trade.
