To Kenny:


Don't care what anyone says about him, it was as exciting as hell to have someone who went for it as consistently as he did. Hope Hahn has some of those same instincts.

Oh yeah and thanks for 2005.

I kinda think Williams will still be involved and the guy above Williams.

I hope Hahn does a better job at drafting.

Given their market size in a division with three small markets, I think it is reasonable to expect the Sox should win the division, on average, once every three years or so, or three times in a given 10-year span. Given that, they should advance to the ALCS on average once every six years, and to the World Series once every 12 years. That extrapolates to one World Series championship every 25 years, and so I just don't think that is too unreasonable to expect as a fan.

I don't consider the Tigers a small market team, not under Mike Ilitch, anyway. Although I agree that it's not unreasonable to expect playoffs 1 of every 3 years.

Can't really call the Twins small market either considering their average ticket price was more expensive ours and their fans actually show up to the park.

That makes me wonder what the TV revenue looks like for each team in the division. As for the answer to that, I have no idea.

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.
