MLB Payroll and Revenue

A look at each team’s opening day payroll data from 2010 – 2020 using all data from Cot’s Contracts and revenue for this time period from Forbes’ estimates. Forbes revenue is in year t+1, in other words the 2020 revenue is the revenue the team is estimated to have generated during the 2019 year. That makes the payroll/revenue column really the 2020 opening day payroll/2019 revenue. All data was hand entered from Cot’s Contracts and Forbes, and if there is an error please contact the website.
