    They finished in the bottom 3, not bottom 3rd, in attendance and local TV ratings.


    He bought the team for $20,000,000 and now it is worth $650,000,000 on the bottom.


    He is a Hall of Fame businessman.


    The baseball product is nothing but crap.


    5 post season appearances in almost 35 years.


    My beef is he got the free stadium from the State and feels he owes nothing to the dope in the stands or in front of the TV.


    I am with Cream.. You reach the point where you HATE the shit show.


    Ricketts has doubled the value of the Cubs since he bought the team.  Ricketts also seems serious about BASEBALL, which Reinsdorf really is not.


    Ricketts will bury the Sox.


    Reinsdorf is interested in BEING AN OWNER and A BIG SHOT WITH OTHER OWNERS.  This is a billionaires club.  Fanboys refuse to see this for what it really is.  This is not Thillens Stadium Little League.


    Hawk said last year that this is BASEBALL, ENTERTAINMENT AND A BUSINESS.


    Reinsdorf fails on the Baseball third.


      You can go to a game and be entertained without baseball........BEER!!!  BULLSHITTING!!!
    MALORT!!!


    TAILGATE!!!  So there is SELF MADE ENTERTAINMENT!!


    Reinsdorf has the business end down pat.

    <<He bought the team for $20,000,000 and now it is worth $650,000,000 on the bottom.>
    [size=13]Forbes' latest list has the Sox valued at $ 975 million.    Sox rank 16th in value, and are below the "average" major league team at $ 1.2 billion despite being in the 3rd most populous market.  Cubs at $ 1.8 bil are worth nearly twice what the Sox are.    With the exception of the Cubs (who are unique) the most valuable clubs are ones who have won in the last 5 years -  Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, Giants, Cardinals Angels, Nationals.   While all boats have been lifted in this tidal wave of revenues coming to MLB clubs in the past decade, those with the best captains have risen faster than the rest.  The value scorecard shows that Reinsdorf is clearly not one of them. [/size]

    This latest Forbes list was an eye-opener.  I was suprised to see Sox as low on the rankings of team value considering they're in 3rd largest market. Sox are worth about the same as Pirates or Twins, and they lag the average value of teams in top 10 markets by over $ 600 million.  Yeah, Sox are still worth  worth nearly a billion and no one is going to shed a tear that they could be worth 40-50 % more.   But for me, it was interesting that his mis-management has cost him so much financially, which is an area he's supposed to excel.

    Well we're all hoping that some billionaire looking to buy a baseball teams sees the Sox as something he can buy cheap and make a billion bucks ..like rehabbing an old house ..get it all shiny and new in a good neighborhood and market and really make a killing. The only reason the Sox are like they are is JR and the way they do business. When Sox Park was built it never should have been built where it is, but as Rosebowl points out, JR was forced to do so in order to get his government money --- urban renewal project.  The sox will be what they are, until they are sold.

    Don't know how easy it will be to uproot Reinsdorf, who claims he wants to keep owning the club until he dies or loses his marbles. Even after that, aren't his sons involved in the business ? They may also want to keep this playtoy.

    He said that last season.


    One of his few comments about the Sox last year.


    He is a P.R. Disaster.
