Why Win?

Assuming the graph is accurate, there is no economic advantage in winning, at least until you get near the 90-win mark. Otherwise, fans won’t reward a team for being around the .500 level. From a purely business perspective, unless you can regularly hit that 90-win mark, year after year, it doesn’t make too much sense to spend a lot of money trying to buy wins.

[I think I got this graph from JC Bradbury’s now-defunct Sabernomics blog, but I’m not sure. I save a lot of graphs but I don’t always track sources as I should. Normally I save the post or article I get a graph from; as you can imagine, my hard drive gets hard to navigate doing this.]
