Some insight into the real finances of an MLB franchise

I really enjoyed this article because it gave me a lot of insight into how MLB finances work. I can definitely use this to help me create realistic finances for my league

Good stuff.

Here is another link about the Diamondbacks new TV deal. The money is staggering.

Arizona’s current television contract, which expires at season’s end, has an average annual vaue of about $31MM per year, Piecoro notes. He adds that the new contract is believed to at least triple that amount.

In case anyone has forgotten, back in 2010 Deadspin posted the leaked financial statements of several MLB clubs. The Pittsburgh Pirates was one of the clubs included, with the statements covering the 2007 and 2008 seasons. Revenue sharing funds comprised 21.9% of the club's total revenue in the former season and 26.7% in the latter. Were it not for revenue sharing, the Pirates would have posted an operating loss of $14.1 million in 2007 and $17.3 million in 2008 instead of the $16.2 million and $21.8 million in operating profits it had in those two years, respectively.

In other words, the larger revenue clubs in MLB not only kept the Pirates in business, but helped the club post healthy operating profits.
