I'd love to crunch the economics of it and see where the break-even point would be; what kind of team would we need to have to have a chance at playing in the World Series, how much would it realistically cost, and what would the return be, again realistically? I'm sure he did it and made his decision.

I think a lot of the teams that are in the 80-90 million payroll area have been making the playoffs more.
