Short summary of article:

Big market teams have larger fan bases, so can charge more for tickets, so have more money to spend, so kick ass.

That and a winning team attracts fans to actually show up to a game. So spending money on your team (not necessarily even your own money because of revenue sharing) means that you can put a better team on the field, meaning you'll win games, meaning people will buy tickets.
