The Yankees take a lot of heat for spending money on players. Some have suggested a salary cap. But one question is what teams re-invest the largest percentage of their profits into their players & who are the tight a$$es? These stats are from 2006.
Just because you are a small market team doesn't mean you cant pay a few of your quality players, or re-invest your profits into your team. Some of these small market owners are just tight a$$es.
Or course there are other factors that make a team a good one to play for: like quality of life, fan support, good management, club house environment, loyalty, etc..

The top 10 teams % of Revenue spent on Payroll (best teams to work for?)
79% Washington Nationals
79% Chicago White Sox
74% New York Yankees
70% Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
67% Toronto Blue Jays
66% Detroit Tigers
62% Minnesota Twins
60% Houston Astros
60% Boston Red Sox
59% Los Angeles Dodgers

Worst Five (Tight *** Teams) % of Revenue spent on Payroll
43% Pittsburgh Pirates - 5th worst
40% Cleveland Indians - 4th worst
32% Tampa Bay Devil Rays - 3rd worst
31% Colorado Rockies - 2nd worst
15% Florida Marlins - worst

Would you want to work for a company that spends only 15-40% of it's profits on it's key employees?

This is exactly the info I was wondering about recently but could never find it.

You have a link, source, site or list of all MLB teams?

I divided teams 2006 Payroll by the 2005 Revenue(there will be a margin of error here) to get a clearer understanding of who really is shelling out in attempt to win.

Here is a link to revenue (http://www.forbes.com/lists/results.jhtml?passListId=33&passYear=2005&passListType=Misc&searchParameter1=unset&searchParameter2=unset&resultsStart=1&resultsHowMany=30&resultsSortProperties=-numberfield2%2C%2Bnumberfield1&resultsSortCategoryName=Current+Value&category1=category&category2=category&passKeyword=)

Great find and post. Good read.

Its interesting to see the Pirates at 43%. With how awful they are, I was anticipating at seeing them somewhere in the 30th percentile.
