FORBES: Sox Are Third Most Valuable MLB Franchise

FORBES magazine today released its 2017 list of the most valuable MLB franchises. Not surprisingly, the Red Sox come in at third position—worth $2.7 billion. Sure beats gambling on soybean futures, eh, John Henry? Topping the list this year are The Bronx Embalmers with a franchise value of $3.7 billion—a mere billion ahead of us. The Los Angeles Dodgers finish in second place ($2.75 billion—despite an operating loss last season). After the Red Sox, the newly-minted World Series Champion Chicago Cubs chime in at the fourth spot ($2.675 billion). Yeah, baseball's really dying.
