So what can we do about it?
As a fan I couldn’t care less about being on top of either of those lists.
I want to be on top of the standings list and I want a front office and ownership group that want the same thing.
I don’t want a real-estate company masquerading as MLB owners. I don’t care if the PGA Tour needs an investment and our owner was nearly a part of that. I certainly don’t want to hear about how hard it is to be an owner of one of the most beloved franchises in all of sports, let alone baseball.
I don’t go to a game to watch Jed Hoyer’s cost-efficient brainchild on the field. I don’t go to Wrigley to stay in one of the Ricketts family’s hotels.
I go to watch the players that I love on the team that I love win baseball games.
So figure it out and pay them. It really and truly is as simple as that, so as fans let’s stop making excuses for anything less.
