Those big up-front expenditures are just a shock to the system. Not a lot of owners are comfortable doing that. Quietly, I don't think Leonsis is giving McPhee the green light to play in those waters.

It wasn't so long ago that $70M was what the Colorados and Detroits and NYRs and Philadelphias and no one else were willing to spend. That's a crazy number, inflation notwithstanding. To couple that with salary that can push actual payroll well into the eighties... well, that's high.
