When Ted was the "best owner in town", his competition was a relatively-new Lerners, Snyder at his nadir, and a dying Abe. "Least worst" would be a lot more accurate than "best" because all Ted had to do in that wilderness-for-everyone-else period was to merely win.

If you put Ted in Boston, he'd be the worst owner in town by a country mile. In New York, he'd be near the end of the pack in Johnson/Wilpon territory. Put Ted in Pittsburgh and if he's still alive after the Pens fans have their way he'd be equal to Nutting and FAR behind Mario and the Rooneys. This goes for most markets.
