How much is each Owner's Net Worth?

Postby acsguitar » Mon Feb 20, 2006 12:13 pm

He I'm tying to come up with a spreed sheet showing how much each owner is worth.

For example Steinbrenner's Net Worth is around 2.7 billion.

The Twins owner Carl Pohlad is worth about 1.8 billion yet he spend next to nothing on his team.

I guess I'm trying to see if Steinbrenner is just really rich or if a lot of teams are rich but just stingy with the wallet.



Anyways I'm finding it tough to figure out.

I did find Arturo Moreno is worth upwards of a billion

The Yankees and Angels have an advatage on media market, therefore net worth isn't the most important thing. A large reason Steinbrenner is worth so much is because of the value of the Yankees. If he ever chooses to liquidate the team he could make almost a billion dollars right there.

Right but I'm wondering if you subtracted out the team value how much would they be worth.

Some owners, like the rockies guys, just don't spend money even though they have lots an lots of it

We could've gotten today off but instead our agency decided that instead of taking off on MLK and Presidents Day that they would just credit us with a full day of vacation.

Yeah work sucks but I'll take 8 hours of vacation time no problem. Its frickin 15 degrees outside, what the hell would I do with a day off today anyway?

Some of these may be useful as a starting point:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ma ... pal_owners
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseba ... _loria_ap/

Click on Carl Lindner and it gives a net worth from 2004 (in wikpedia). Wikpedia has interesting links too. From here, you can probably search each one pretty easily. Some will also be on the Forbes list, so I'd look there too.

One of the Loria links in Wikpedia links to a forbes article that lists revenues, net worth, etc. of all MLB teams from 2004: http://www.forbes.com/free_forbes/2004/0426/066tab.html
