Tampa Bay Rays President Matt Silverman Speaks on Revenue

New, comments

The Tampa Tribune has a nice piece up on just about every facet of the Rays revenue. From tickets to TV, it's all there. Here's a Silverman quote:

Overall, even with its fortunes rising, the Rays may be "cash-flow negative" this year, with more money going out than coming in, Silverman said. The team was cash-flow positive last year, he said.

Also, this quote is excellent:

The magazine also estimated the Rays' value at $290 million last year, good for 29th place, just ahead of the Florida Marlins.

Silverman insisted the ranking doesn't matter.

"It's not relevant," he said, "because the team is not for sale."

 

Clearly Silverman is on the fence about the issue.
