That makes sense to me given the revenue generated from media deals and the marketing department of MLB.
I think the winning thing was missing because they did this survey when the Sox were in first place. People taking the survey really couldn't say winning was the most important thing because the Sox were winning, yet the people surveyed weren't coming.. If they did this survey and the Sox were in last, I have no doubt winning would have ranked high.
