Rany put together a neat little article that credibly speculates on what A-Rod's career might have been like if the MLBPA hadn't vetoed his trade to the Red Sox.

What would be th impact of a new buyer? Assume he/they buy the team for $400m and interest on the purchase is 10%. (Mix of debt and equity). That's $40m flushed down the toilet each year that could go to payroll. Just to keep payroll at current levels which I do believe is maxed out the new owner has to generate $40m extra. We only make 130m in revenue so that's asking for a 25% immediate rise just to keep pace. How would this make us better?

Mellinger figured out how much of a bump we're getting from 2013 to 2014 for the new national TV deal. It is not $25MM, which I already knew because these deals always start below average and end above average, but I figured it would be about $20MM or so.

Apparently the TV deals are more back-loaded than I thought, and I hadn't considered that our old deal was also probably back-loaded; the bump we're getting next year from the new national TV deal is only about $5-10MM, not counting the share that MLB is going to take for the central fund.

If that is really the case, then it is definitely possible that we might be a little bit past our break-even point.

If it's the OnGoal guys, they will sink the assets into the business necessary to operate at a high level.

These guys are not cheap asses like Glass and the Hunt families. They understand if you spend on sports, you get it back in the long run, even if you take initial losses.

AND they bring a winning attitude. They will not give a guy like GMDM 8 years of pure failure.

Pure failure feels like we almost won the World Series.

But $400m sounds like a lot of dough. As you know, MLB is a much pricier game than MLS is. They would be walking into a completed stadium rather than building another Sporting Park from scratch. Still, they're locked into a crappy TV deal for another 6 years as of today. Where would the extra revenue come from?

I thought we were looking to get away from profit-seekers and go towards guys who are willing to spend big and lose big. Since you can't improve the TV deal and since our fans are resistant to purchasing tickets even at today's low prices, how on earth does OnGoal find money?

They are creative... they have a damned amazing marketing team.... and sell out every freaking game.

They provide a fabulous atmosphere and connect with the fans...

I don't know how that makes them more money, or if it really even does... but those guys are incredible in the areas of marketing and vision.

Oh, I agree. What they've accomplished in MLS has been quite impressive. I do think our fans haven't considered what a massive investment that just buying the team would pose. Then, on top, they have to generate tens of millions just to cover the interest payments in order to stay where we are at. One of the benefits of Glass owning the team (shoot me now) is that he's pretty flush. Financially stable with low or no debt.

That's all fine and dandy... but give me the owner that spends their money in better quality manners - even if there's less of it - Every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

If what Glass has been saying all along has been the truth, I think its time to release an audit from a respected accounting firm. Not just to satisfy our own nosey curiosity, but really he should do it for his sake. I don't know if there are rules among the MLB owners or in the CBA against doing that, but if he's really looking at possibly losing money this season and he's getting absolutely no credit for doing that, then thats not fair.

We probably don't need an open book or a line-by-line accounting of every dollar spent, you can make the categories somewhat general, as long as its specific enough for us to kinda see how it could be the case and someone independent and respected signs off on it, then we can move on.

It wouldn't be in the CBA because the players have requested this for years. They'd love it if Glass did it. Then the other owners would kick him out of the game.

So apparently the "Reins are off" of Duffy........but then they talk about him being in the bullpen or maybe even AAA. WTF??


http://www.kansascity.com/2014/02/14...her-danny.html



If Duffy doesn’t win the job, his next step will be compelling. The Royals have yet to decide on a subsequent path, general manager Dayton Moore explained on Friday morning. Duffy could operate as a dynamic left-handed weapon in manager Ned Yost’s bullpen. The other choices to pair with southpaw Tim Collins are Francisley Bueno, Donnie Joseph and Everett Teaford. Duffy possesses a momentary appeal in this role.

Yet Moore reiterated how Duffy is critical to the Royals’ long-term planning, and his success as a starting pitcher is paramount. The organization visualizes Duffy, Ventura and fellow top prospect Kyle Zimmer all part of the rotation in 2015. So a stint in Class AAA Omaha might be more conducive to Duffy’s advancement. There is concern a bullpen stint may heighten his struggles with location.
