Baseball’s Worst Team is the Most Profitable

by Rachel Baker on August 27, 2013 has an informative article on how the worst team in Major League Baseball has turned out to be the most profitable in history.

The Astros are on pace to rake in an estimated $99 million in operating income this season. That is nearly as much as the estimated operating income of the previous six World Series championship teams — combined.

Yet the Astros are 43-86, worst in the majors. Of the 270 Major League Baseball teams who have taken the field since 2005, none have finished with a worse winning percentage than Houston’s.
