The Gray Lady Weighs In

The Grande Dame of NY Sports Columnists adds his two bits to the Nationals, with some speculation on who the new owners could be.

Of note from the article is this little gem about the revenues:
Bowden hasn't been told if he can exceed the $41 million payroll with which the Expos opened last season, but baseball officials have estimated that the Nationals will take in at least $100 million more in revenue than the Expos did. That should give Bowden a little more to play with.

$100 million might be conservative. But they're missing the bigger question--is JimBo really the guy you want to be playing with that money?
