The fact is that the Sox and whatever they draw are more profitable right now than the Cubs so long as the Ricketts family has to pay back loans they took out.
This is the part people don't realize. The Cubs have a ton of debt that they need to pay down annually, they have a fraction of the parking revenue, limited ad revenue,and maintenance of that 100 year old money pit they call home. All stadium maintenance of the Cell is picked up by the State. I would bet the Cubs are down $30-40 million vs. The Sox before they open the doors every year.
