And, for the umpteenth time, it's completely foolish to believe that a team competing for a playoff spot every year until the last day of the season are going to be sellers at the deadline. In the fantasy land where you live, maybe the 2-3 home games that generate ~2 million revenue/per game is something you flippantly throw away on getting a higher draft pick. In the real world, that doesn't happen - especially a big market like this one.

I don't entirely disagree with your idea, but it's not going to happen. Could you imagine Toronto being tied for a playoff spot and selling at the trade deadline? Those fans would burn the city to the ground.
