FUZZY MATH: Sid Hartman, the

FUZZY MATH: Sid Hartman, the dean of Minneapolis sports columnists, reports that the Minnesota Twins' gate revenue for the 2002 season was $4.5 million. Which absolutely can't be right, because the Twins' attendance for the year was about 1.8 million, so unless each ticket costs $2.25, Sid's projections are way off. I think he meant to say $45 million... it doesn't follow that the team would make more from baseball's miniscule revenue sharing than from actual home attendance.
