good. maybe an owner that actually enjoys baseball and doesn't run his franchise like a walmart will allow the Royals to remain competitive more than two and three year windows each decade or longer.

$1B?

Seems like a decent price. Does it include the K?

Well, David Glass just made $904 million over the last 19 years. That's $47 million a year. Of course I have no idea how much he put in to the team after buying them for $96 million in 2000, so the profit is likely not that large.

Still, John Sherman, pending ratification, is set to be the new owner. Is this a good thing for Royal's fans or will we get more of the same?

despite what the Royals claim in losses, their numbers really don't make any sense... they likely made anywhere from a few million to dozens of them each year:

I can't imagine that he's buying the team simply to run it the same way... he has a history of doing things to improve KC that put Glass to shame. yes he's going to try and make money but you can run a small market team and build it to win while making a revenue profit with how much money is sloshing around the league right now with TV contracts, etc.

I'm sure he's making close to that $900m, maybe more.
