Sox have everything going for them this year -- World Series rings, a hot start, new faces with local connections. This year they should set an attendance record, and there ought to be a lot of ancillary revenue from concessions, merchandising, etc.

Or so says the conventional wisdom. Does anyone have hard data about how well they're really doing? I really want to see them turn a big profit this year even after bumping the payroll so much.

IIRC, JR sets payroll based on last year's revenue. Money spent this year would go towards next year's team.

The sox have 21,000 full st holders...that money is GURANTEED.
last year, and the years prior, they projected 20,000 a night.....now thier projection is HIGHER (more like 30,000 a night)..thus, they spend more....knowing that the final number will be pretty close to the projected number(that and they want more than one WS, which will GURANTEE more revune)

Like ewokpelts said, Jerry will base payroll off of what he plans on happening next, not what already happened. However, last year is often a good indication of next year, so it's not like the success of last year has no effect on this year's payroll, it just really isn't looked at that way. If you have two years with identical revenues, the spending next year might not be the same, it depends more on the market. Luckily, the baseball market is growing, which means Jerry will more than likely invest most of the money back into the team for quite some time.
