I don't know the specifics of the deal that the Sonics were asking from the city, but it's been shown that stadiums funded by taxpayers actually are cheaper than the privately funded ones. An extensive study by a Harvard urban planner graduate student named Judith Grant Long revealed that the concessions made by city officials to privately funded stadium projects end up costing the cities millions in upkeep and lost revenue. Perhaps Seattle should have footed the bill to keep the franchise and make a little money as well.

Come on. That's pure speculation. Ortiz is being let go because he has become a horrible pitcher.
