I expect the Marlins to climb out to 30th place now that they're getting a tax-payer funded retractable roof stadium.

According to this the Marlins had a net income of $43.7 M in 2008, despite having the league's worst attendance ($16,688/game). The Yankees, meanwhile averaged 53,069/game last year, best in baseball, and yet lost $3.7 M, 2nd wrost in baseball.

Anybody still want to say that ticket sales are the biggest source of MLB revenue?

The reason for it is because the Yankees had to write the Marlins, among others, a rather large check.

Not to mention that one player on the Yankees is paid more than the entire Marlins team. It doesn't matter how much money you make if you spend more than you bring in.

Forbes is a mere estimate. I seriously doubt the Yankees lose money.

I am only 449. 999, 999. 16 dollars away from owning the White Sox. Hell yes.

So the Dodgers, Giants, and cubs are the only teams that own their ballparks?

If I am not mistaken, the Blue Jays and the Red Sox also own their ballparks.

The Rogers Centre (nee SkyDome) is owned by Rogers Communications.
