Forbes ranks Padres 18th in MLB Team Valuations

Jason Smith

Padres are ranked 18th in this year's MLB team valuations by Forbes. I forget are we supposed to be angry/bitter or happy/carefree about news like this?

The San Diego Padres were sold to a group headed by the O’Malley family last year for $800 million; $200 million of the purchase price was for the team’s 21% stake in its new RSN, Fox Sports San Diego. We value the Padres at $600 million.


I made a table for you to compare other team's values. There's an annoying slideshow on the Forbes' site.
