Surprised this wasn't posted earlier. With all the talk about the Reds adding payroll, attendance, etc, this is the flip side of doing it the wrong way. Obviously we don't know much about how many teams, if any, are in trouble. However I am sure these teams would rather not be out of compliance with the debt rules.
