Some random thoughts in my head but by removing this cloud of uncertainty, I bet that amount could be achieved in a short amount of time with the expectations of expenses decreasing.
Do the Forbes numbers include play-off revenue? The Yotes had 7 or 8 sold out playoff games which should have added at least 1M per game.

Colorado had zero play-off revenue.

Your point is understood but the revenue picture would look mighty different if the Yotes were a non-playoff team, assuming of course play-off revenue is part of the Forbes numbers.
