Rofl. Using numbers back to 2001, Raptors have averaged 11th. Leafs and Raptors are both in the upper half of their respective leagues. MLB we've lagged behind, but the Jays still have a solid fanbase which has recently started to grow especially due to Alex A's work. In game attendance has been poor, but they still maintain a good following otherwise and get decent TV ratings.
There are very few cities that can manage solid attendance and viewership for all 4 sports. Philadelphia for example, does well in the NHL and MLB, and their football team averages around 10-14 per year which is good too, but their NBA team, until recently, has been piss poor.
