PU: Well, the only thing I'd take out is the word little.
FD: You have 26 wealthy egotists. Have you adjusted to that?
PU: Oh, they'll always complain about [my exercising] too much control. But that's the only way I can operate. In an important environment, you can't decide by committee. But I would not describe the owners as rich egotists. There may be some, but there are also some of the best citizens in this country. And it's very clear to me now some are not so wealthy. Some are less wealthy than they were before they owned a baseball team.
FD: O.K., is everybody losing money?
PU: Ninety percent.
FD: Does anybody make money?
PU: A couple.
FD: If we went back 10 or 15 years ago?
PU: The other way around. It's turned that much.
FD: So why is everybody losing money? Salaries?
