Table: Hardly Flush in Phoenix


STARTUP

Cost overruns on the stadium saddled the team with $150 million in debt.

PRICEY PLAYERS

Payroll of $102.8 million* is fourth-highest in baseball.

ATTENDANCE

Will be below 1998 levels, despite post-World Series boost.

TICKET PRICES

At an average $19.45, cheap for champions.

TV CONTRACTS

Local deals don't take into account Series win. No full share of national TV revenues until 2003.

Even with $16 million annual cash infusion from investor group, team will likely lose over $30 million this year.
