Yankees revenue

Recommended Posts

Darren Rovell said today that the Yankees projected revenue for 2010 is going to be 600 million....and that does NOT include the yes network, which is valued at over 1 billion dollars.

That is just freaking insane.

They had 400 million in TICKET revenue last year!!!

Holy @#%^!!! That is insane. I'd venture to say that amount is twice what the O's bring in; the $400 million that is.

They brought in over 70 million last year...IN PLAYOFF TICKET REVENUE!

Think about that...That is crazy.

I mean, when they sign a player to a 25 million dollar a year contract..that's like us signing a 10 million dollar player.

Agreed. Thats why they can have 4 guys making $20 million and upwards of 10 guys on the roster making $10 million plus. Not to mention the simple fact that thier better than us at scouting, development, etc.

Yeah but an additional team in NY would never survive.:rolleyes:

I think multiple other teams could survive in New York, but they would have a long path to really cutting into the Yanks' revenues. I'm in favor of having at least six teams in the NY area, but realize this is a generational-type approach. The Yanks would retain most of their market advantages for 30, 50 or more years.

As much as I hate to say it, it's unlikely that any approach to limiting the Yanks' dominance would really take hold for decades. The only thing that might work would be bad for the game - a big decrease in popularity and revenues that forced radical restructuring, or led to other competing leagues.

We're stuck with a system like soccer, where Rangers and Celtic, Man U and Arsenal and Chelsea, and Real and Barcelona are at or near the top every single year. But without the inter-league (outside of the majors) competitions and relegation battles that give lesser teams something to fight for.

Exactly.

Another team in New York could destroy the Mets. It wouldn't impact the Yankees at all.

Then the Yankees shouldn't care if another team is placed there. At least a low budget team would be able to take advantage of the larger market. That would mean more money for everyone.

The Mets do most of the destruction to themselves and all the while keeping a budget usually in the top 5. So what if they are now working with a budget far less than what they have now. Other teams do it and are more successful than they currently are. The Mets will just have to be more careful about the decisions they make. Like just about every other team that isn't spoiled by a large market.

Yet another argument for NFL-style revenue sharing that absolutely no one seems to be seeing. The deck is so absurdly stacked in the Yankee$ favor that they truyl should be embarassed any year they don't win...er, purchase the World Series.

Forbes had the Yankees' 2009 revenue at $441 mm. http://www.forbes.com/lists/2010/33/baseball-valuations-10_New-York-Yankees_334613.html I wonder why it would be so much higher in 2010.

Attendance this year is up about 400/game so far, and I assume the spread is projected to increase slightly by the end of the year. They have 7 home games each remaining against TB and Boston. That's not a huge attendance bump, but those additional ticket sales are almost certainly in the $1,000+ seats since those were the only seats that were empty last year. I believe they raised ticket prices, too.

Didn't they also discount a lot of the more expensive seats last season? If those are selling at full price now it would make a difference.

    • The sneaky thing about O’Hearn is how many loud outs he made against the shift. With no infielders in RF, I am curious what he’ll do. Not saying he is going to be some kind of star, but perhaps a useful piece. 
    • Eh, it's an overpay, but I don't hate O'Hearn as a backup. There's enough there to suggest he may be helped by no shifts and his EV and hard hit %s are decent. I'm betting he could have waited for him to clear waivers, and signed him to a minor league/major league split contract. I think Elias really wants a left-handed hitting first baseman but he has Montcastle right now.
    • I have seen on conversations a lot of the high paid MLB players build their own facilities with all the 'tools'.  Driveline's expertise is the utilization of those tools, data analysis, and developing the training plans for their clients.  Players that utilize them often become coaches/trainers themselves if they can't reach the highest level.  Thus the 'driveline' culture and thoughts grow.  Of course, others out there also believe Driveline and similar programs to be the problem and not the cure.  Players ultimately buy into what/who they think will help them be better.  Internal or External to the team they play for. The MiLB clients at Driveline are likely the ones trying to improve themselves above and beyond the 'coaches and staff' of the major league minor league coaches.  Ones that have enough signing bonus and commitment to live in Seattle or Phoenix in the offseason.  Another facility in AZ is called PUSH PERFORMANCE.  The top facilities also have Physical therapists on staff.   Curious with changes in technology and scouting how many college kids that don't go to Cape Cod league would choose to develop somewhere like Driveline vs playing summer ball.  If they or their folks have the $ to invest.  Similar conversation to stick to the school/team staff or look outside to improve yourself. Likely two types of offseason programs.  Pitchers and Position Players.  After the season, just about everyone needs some time off.  Likely 3-4 weeks.  Use November and December to build muscle mass and strength.  Use January to take that new strength and apply it to improve speed/quickness.  Then 2-3 weeks start with the more precise swing timing, pitch location, with Live AB's etc.   I don't think players are using Spring Training to get ready for the season.  I think the off season is to get ready, build on it during Spring training (trying to stay healthy) in order to improve your level for the season.
    • Eastern shore MD is some of the cheapest water front property available in the US.  If he’s a country boy, as I imagine he is, he will like the area.  Imagine having a nice duck hunting lodge could be quite attractive, and as you mentioned a solid way to diversify.  Have to imagine Boras schools his clients on that. 
    • I haven’t had a chance to see Cowser play in person yet.  I agree Mayos talent is off the charts.  Size, arm Strength and raw power at his age  put him on a very elite bracket.  I’m pulling for him to put it all together.  He just makes me a little nervous to get too excited.  I’ll happily eat crow if he mashes and will be right there rooting for him.
