    Seems to be just under half. https://www.forbes.com/teams/boston-red-sox/

    Ticket sales $187M (43%)

    Total revenue $434M

    Yankees ticket sales are approximately 47% of their annual revenue. Almost every other team is under 40%, so the Sox and Yankees probably value their ticket sales more than most franchises.

    Least important ticket sales:

    Marlins - 16%
    A's - 15%
    Rays - 14%

    I think more people are cutting the cord, using streaming services and just finding alternate ways to entertain themselves 162 days a year.
    The Red Sox will find revenue streams. I don't doubt that.

    Of course they will.

    They still have not announced the official tampon of The Boston Red Sox.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I don't know where they'll come from. The next time you're in Fenway park take a few minutes and count the number of ads you see. I've sat in just about every area of the park and I can always count about 100 of them.

    At least the Red Sox and Yankees have not sold naming rights to the ballparks. We might be looking at Prudential Park and JP Morgan Chase Stadium.

    Even thinking that is just plain wrong. :-(

    That'll never happen.

    Bank of America is the official bank of the Yankees, not Chase.

    did it go in looking like Damon and come out looking like Tavares?

    This is what I usually do. It's not the actual length of the game, it's all the frappin commercials. I can typically watch a game in about 2 hours.

    It's the only way to go! You can then rewind and watch plays over again, which I often do.

    Also, I can't 'watch' baseball games with a group of friends. I don't want the distraction.

    Bowden says Sox offered groome and a player off the roster for Manny.

    If that player is bogey, then I think Baltimore should have jumped on that trade.

    If that player is a pitcher, then I see why Baltimore passed.

    My question is.... has dave decided the bradley’s and bogey’s of our team have plateaued and is he trying to upgrade them with JD and manny?

    IMO it's not that DD thinks that they've plateaued. It's more that trading JBJ might be necessary to make a trade and JBJ is the most expendable of our outfielders. (I agree with everything I said there but I still hope they don't break up this outfield). Bogaerts could be dangled if we traded for Machado (UGHHH!) because XBo has been less than hoped for on both sides of the ball and trading him frees up a defensive spot for MM. Just thinking of this makes me want to insert a picture of Brian Griffin puking, but I lack the skills to do that.

    I don’t think I’d jump if I were Baltimore at anything Groome related. I know he’s got great stuff, but his proximity is so far away and with the injury history and the off the field stuff, he’s lost the ability to be a headliner. That may change this year.
