Loria is going to bank a lot of money from revenue sharing, tv deals, etc., and the fans are going to pay for it because of the product on the field. Selig wont even step in and deny this trade, so you know he wont step in and call for new ownership.
After this deal, no they wont because the attendance will probably reach levels like they were at Sun Life before they left. No one will attend to see that product on the field. Im betting on avg attendance to be under 18,000 next season (they averaged 27,000 this past yr).

I GUARANTEE the fans will not forget this time and will not be showing up again in even small numbers. These guys better be prepared for that...even a small budget team may make some money via the revenue sharing but the fans are not going to show up down the road. The only hope for fans to return would be for Loria to sell the team and he'll realize that in a few yrs I bet and put the team up for sale.
