Yankees make (including YES) over $500M-$600M a year. they count money they pay to Yes for rights fees as an expense which reduces what they have, plus now they are counting the stadium debt also. They make easily more than $200-$300 million above payroll. the numbers came out when the Steinbrenner sons (who don't give a shit about the team for the reason im about to give) got the team valued in case of a future sale last year or the year before.
i LOVED george for all his faults and i was a met fan. he got it. i dont think his sons get it. just my opinion.
