About

Forbes has released its annual list of the most valuable teams in baseball, and for the 14th straight year - dating back to when Forbes first began this exercise - the Yankees stand at the top. They don't just stand there, though; they stand there completely alone, looking down at all the other teams like they're ants on a sidewalk. Forbes values the Yankees at being worth $1.7 billion, while the Red Sox and Dodgers - the two runners-up - are valued at a combined $1.71 billion.

Back in 1998, the Yankees were 12% more valuable than the second-place Orioles. Now, they're 86% more valuable than the second-place Red Sox. The Yankees are good at what they do.
