Forbes Magazine MLB Franchise Values: Are Projected Values Too High or Too Low?

Forbes magazine recently released its list of MLB franchise values heading into the 2012 season. Team finances are private, so this list is one of the best estimates of the worth of each franchise.

There are a number of aspects that go into the Forbes rankings, but there may have been a few things that they missed for each team.

In this article, I am ranking the value of each franchise with a number of additional aspects that go beyond the financials.

These include the value of a team's on-the-field talent and off-the-field factors such as a team's fanbase. Some other elements that impact the values are a team's location, farm system and ability to compete. 

After analyzing each team's value with these additional guidelines, I determine whether Forbes' projected values are too high, too low or about right. 

 

Note: These numbers do not reflect what the teams would actually sell for.
