    Jays valued at 1.35 Billion

    According to May issue of Forbes magazine, the Blue Jays are valued at 1.35 billion. Up 136% from last year. Ranking them as 16th most valuable MLB franchise. Just to compare, five years ago the Jays were worth 568 million.

    The Yankees are most valuable at 4 billion. Quite the increase since Steinbenner bought the franchise in 1973 for 8.8 millon. In 2018 dollars that would be about 52 million though. Still a dramatic increase.

    The second most valued franchise are the Dodgers at 3 billion, and then the Cubs at 2.9 billion. The Giants are 4th at 2.85 billion. Thanks to a huge 276% increase in value over the last year. The least valued franchise is Tampa at 900 million.

    The average franchise is valued at 1.6 billon. Average revenue is now 315 million. The highest paid player is Mike Trout at 35.8 million. With 33.3 million in salary and 2.5 million counting endorsements.

    Boston was 5th this year. Don't know why Giants increased in value more than other clubs?

    San Fran is a hot place to buy property now. Extremely high end. Do they own the stadium? Because that alone has probably doubled in value the last few years. A lot of tech money in the area so ticket prices have probably gone up too.
    Maybe gay dudes are starting to get into sports? Haha I jk sorry if that offends anyone.

    What I see in Toronto is a middle of the pack (value wise) franchise who is spending closer to the top end on player salary.
