Given their owner, the Tigers are "big market," on par with us. KC and CLE definitely are "small market." MIN had a decent revenue stream with the new park, but after Mauer's contract they operate like a team in a "smaller market" than us.

The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
