So for 2.5 million per year he can forget about the Yotes entirely and just accept 12.5 million per year to manage the place. Again I couldn't sign fast enough. The paper might combust.
You forgot one very important expense- cost of capital! The money needed to purchase the team costs a lot of money each year. Lets just say that it is junk bond quality so a cost of capital could well be 5-8%. At 5%, the cost of the money is ($170MM purchase price) is 8.5MM per year. The coaches and and a skeleton staff still cost $6MM++ so tell me where is GJ making money without his team playing? Real answer: he isn`t!!!
