Uh, what? Winning the World Series doesn't suddenly equal "money for the local economy." Detroit's economy is what it is, and for a number of reasons.

"Stadium as economic development engine" was debunked ages ago, and I don't see how a victory would drive the economy outside of merchandise sales, which ... still isn't a huge part of the local economy.
