View Full Version : Question about playoff revenue to the Sox

09-08-2005, 09:23 AM
Does anyone know the specific financial effects on making the ALDS, reaching the ALCS, and reaching the World Series? Does each progressive step mean millions more in revenue to the WhiSox, from the gate and/or TV? Do teams participating in the playoffs get a greater share of TV revenues than those watching at home? Do the Sox get all or most of the home gate?

There has been a lot of discussion on how much the Sox can spend next year for players (like Konerko), and if the Sox get more revenue this year, they would have more to spend next year. (I am assuming management would want to keep a successful team intact to reap more benefits in 2006. At least JR did that with the Bulls, for some time, anyway.)

They will be spending the extra cash on a bobblehead day for next year.......not players. :D:
