Says The Athletic:
The Nationals, who defeated the Houston Astros in seven games to win the 2019 World Series, are on top of the baseball world. Washington, listed as the seventh-biggest U.S. media market, according to the most recent Nielsen rankings, has a growing and energized fan base.
The Orioles, sandwiched between Indianapolis and Raleigh-Durham at 26th on Nielsen’s list, have averaged 103 losses in the past three seasons. They’ll likely eclipse that number in 2020 while having one of the lowest payrolls in the game.
