As with every teams draft picks, time will tell. As far as the 50 million they shed, I'm sure the folks who bought season tickets for near the highest prices in baseball find great comfort and mark it as a successful season when they lost 101 games. And any pain from the lousy team Theo fielded was relieved when Cubbie fans resold they're tickets for prices of .15 - $5.
