.Though the New York Yankees finished in fourth place, they're still the most valuable franchise in MLB.
From Bloomberg :
“Major League Baseball is catching up to valuations of the National Football League,” Anthony Di Santi, the managing director of the sports finance advisory division of New York-based Citigroup Inc.’s private bank, said at the Bloomberg Sports Business Summit on Sept. 10. “It’s because they’ve been exploiting the media opportunities that are available to them on a national level.”
It's interesting that MLB's most disliked franchise is also worth the most amount of money, a bit like Floyd Mayweather Jr. Hey, you don't have to like 'em, but you still tune in.
