True. I wonder if the increased fan involvement in winning seasons and playoffs appearances typically offsets the decrease in tickets/merch sales during rebuild years?

That assumes that the winning ever occurs, there are plenty of teams that both attempt to build through the draft and perpetually suck. I'm guessing that for a team like the cubs, the winning is massively profitable, but I wonder about team like the pirates who peaked at the nlds before starting another rebuild
