Biz of Football Live Blogging the Super Bowl

Pitchers and catchers report for spring training in just a matter of days, but for many, today is all about the Super Bowl.

Today, I, along with Business of Sports Network staff members Joe Tetreault, and Matthew Coller, will be covering the game from top to bottom. There will be a recap of key plays (of course any that result in scoring), but also all commentary on all the trimmings. There will be embedded commercials (if they are made available online), and a solid dose of humor to keep you hitting the refresh button all day long. Also, you can add your comments as we see this as an open thread discussion, as well.

Hope you'll join us:

Team TotalsThe Biz of Baseball has been updated with new data....

With the recent addition of our MLB Salary Database, those wanting to see how much players make for a given year has been well received. But, we had more salary data on hand, and after numerous requests, we have added it.

The salary database now has a button labeled “Team Totals”. With it, you can now get Opening Day payroll information for each club from 1985 to the present. On top of that, if you select any of the years from 1999 to the present you will get not only the Opening Day payroll, but the club’s end of year payroll; the salary for the 40 man roster. This EOY payroll information has been highly requested, and we’re proud to make it available to readers.

To see this new data, select the following link (or the image above):

Written by the Staff   
Sunday, 17 January 2010 17:09

Maury BrownMaury Brown, the president of the Business of Sports Network will be on Sirius/XM radio’s “MLB Home Plate” (XM 175, Sirius 210) at 5:30pm ET talking the sale of the Texas Rangers, and the potential sale of the Houston Astros.

With the exclusive 30-day negotiating window expired between the Greenberg/Ryan group and Hicks Sports Group, question remain as to how the sale is proceeding.

On top of Rangers sale, there has been increased discussions by Astros owner Drayton McLane that the club is up for sale. Could both MLB franchises in Texas change ownerships in the foreseeable future? Tune in.

UPDATE: MLB Salary Database Now Has Inflation Adjustment
User Rating: / 1

The Biz of Baseball

The Biz of Baseball has been updated with new content...

Recently we added a beta test version of a salary database that allows users to search against player name, league, team, etc. The data within it runs from 1985 to 2008, as well as historical salary data.

While it is interesting to know that, say, Babe Ruth made $20,000 his first year with the Yankees after being sold from the Red Sox, it doesn't paint a true picture as to what that means in today's dollars, based on inflation. For Ruth's $20,000 paycheck in 1920, it would be worth $216,330 in 2009.

We have now added a new column in the salary database that shows this information for each entry. The exception is salary before 1914. Since inflation data prior to that date is not available, all data before 1914 is shown with an inflationary figure based on 1914's calculation (see example of what Curt Flood's data looks lke below).


Whether it's Cy Young, or Willie Mays, you can now see some of what they made to play in Major League Baseball years before the reserve clause was removed.

Also, we are very close to getting complete Opening Day salaries for the 2009 season -- based upon the USA Today salary database (25 man rosters) -- into the system, as well. Look for an announcement, shortly.

To access this data, select the following link:

What Did Cy Young, Willie Mays, and Other Oldtimers Make? We've Got That

The Biz of Baseball has been updated with new content...

Recently we added a beta test version of a salary database that allows users to search against player name, league, team, etc. The data within it runs from 1985 to 2008 and is based on the open source "Lahman database."

While this data has been available for sometime through Lahman, over the last year and a half we have been combing through old references such as The Spalding Guide, and old copies of The Sporting News (amazing what your local library offers,) pulling together player salary data that pre-dates the Lahman data. While we do not have salary information for every player for each year, we do have enough that it was worth putting into The Biz of Baseball's salary database.

That data is now online.

Whether it's Cy Young, or Willie Mays, or some guy named "Ruth", you can now see some of what they made to play in Major League Baseball years before the reserve clause was removed (searching will show you that Ruth made $2,500 in 1914 with the Red Sox, $80,000 in 1931 with the Yankees, and $35,000 in 1935 with the Boston Braves).

Also, we are very close to getting complete Opening Day salaries for the 2009 season -- based upon the USA Today salary database (25 man rosters) -- into the system, as well. Look for an announcement, shortly.
