Lip,

The solution is creating a sound minor league system, paying for good scouting, having a good international scouting staff, using the money accumulated throughout the years to get quality fa's, having a marketing staff that knows how to treat its customers so fans actually feel wanted when they go to park, hiring good baseball people that have total control of their responsibilities, competing with the other Chicago club for the future fan and Im sure Im forgetting something else.

But they really dont have to do any of this to make money. The lease deal makes it very easy for this club to do this without much risk. Finally I do agree with you that winning should take priorty but profits can trump practically anything in todays world.
