This is from Jayson Stark's column on ESPN.com:

"In case you missed the latest release of the Forbes 400 , this year's list of the 400 richest people in America includes seven baseball owners -- six if you no longer count Ted Turner (AOL Time Warner controls the Braves' pursestrings). The rankings:

Ted Turner, Braves -- No. 80 (net worth: $2.2 billion)
Carl Pohlad, Twins -- No. 88 ($2 billion)
Drayton McLane, Astros -- No. 185 ($1.1 billion)
Tom Hicks, Rangers -- No. 332 ($725 million)
Carl Lindner, Reds -- No. 350 ($675 million)
Tom Werner, Red Sox -- No. 368 ($600 million)
Mike Illitch, Tigers -- No. 381 ($575 million)

Hmmmm a lot of "so called" small, impoverished markets on that list isn't it?

What % of the yankees does Steinbrenner own? That club itself is worth over 500 million, isn't it?
