I'm starting to convince myself that the Cubs teardown approach has the beneficial side effect of making them a ****load of money for a few years while they still draw the blue sheep to the Wrigley experience and trade off as much of the high-priced bad paper as they can while trotting out a team largely earning the MLB minimum wage.

Even with a surge in disgruntled "fans" unhappy with the lack of immediate results on this 3-4 year process, they will still draw 2.5 - 2.8 million. I did hear just today that they will be reducing prices on SOME tickets for the 2013 campaign, but they are also looking to add some more prime real estate seats by moving the wall behind home plate a little closer to the field.
