Jerry Reinsdorf: “Yeah, it was a tough call because we’ve really taken a chance and stuck our necks out. If this team bombs and we draw 2.2 million people next year, we are going to lose a lot of money. So, we are betting that we are going to be good.”

more Reinsdorf: “Last year was a difficult year. We weren’t as good as we thought we could be. Our attendance (2.2 million) was down. Financially, it came out OK. Thinking about this year, we had to make a decision for the long term: Were we better off to try to get better, or were we better off to use this as a rebuilding year? That’s the thing that took us a long time to make up our minds.”

Kenny Williams:  “You can get player X, Y and Z to make it all come together. If get X without Y and Z, you don’t want to get caught in middle. We decided to strike and strike quickly.”
