I agree with what you are saying in principle but remain skeptical about whether it will actually happen. The Orioles have played winning baseball since 2012 - we are going on five years here.
What has happened with attendance? It has actually gotten worse over the past year despite two playoff appearances, a much larger payroll, and other factors that you'd think would improve attendance (Baltimore on the jersey, Student Nights, other promotions).
I've been a season ticket holder since 2005 and I've seen a lot of losing baseball. I've also seen a lot of empty seats at OPACY. Never have I been as disgusted with the fan base than I am now.
