Red Sox good for baseball

As much as I hate the Red Sox nation as the next green and gold fan, it just occured to me that Red Sox is actually good for baseball. Put it simply, they make money for baseball. Whether it being long time massholes at home, or bandwagoners on the road, or red sox haters coming to see them lose, they do draw a crowd. Plus red sox fans are known drunks, and drunks are easily parted with their money via over-priced consessions and merchandises. If there were no red soxes (or the Yankeess), baseball may become more competitive for true fans, but will also make less money, and less TV coverage, and may become like hokey or soccer.

I feel dirty now, like Gordon Gekko.
