Kansas City Royals Worth Less

Forbes values the Royals at $1.06 billion, slightly more than the Tampa Bay Rays at $1.055 billion and the Miami Marlins at $990 million. The magazine puts the Royals’ revenue at $109 million and estimates an operating loss of $37 million."

After the MLB boneheaded move last week this year is going to be tough for baseball. They’ve pissed off a measurable percentage of fans. If I wanted a side of social justice with my stadium beer I’d go watch the Chiefs play.

Headline should say Royals are worthless. MLB is dying. With the latest move, they sped up the process.
