Red Sox To Pay $4.5M Luxury Tax For The 2016 Season
Only The Denizens Of Chavez Ravine ($31.8M) and The Bronx Embalmers ($27.4M) will shell out more luxury tax penalty cash than your own 2016 Carmine Hose ($4.5M). As offenders for the second straight year, the Red Sox have to pay up at a 30% rate. The Evil Ones are forking over the penalty for the 14th straight year—contributing $325 million over that time period. A record six clubs have to pay the piper this year—at a total contribution of $74 million.
