Business of Sports Network MLB Organization of the Year

 

When we set out to determine which MLB organization was the best, we knew that in order to do it, we had to look through multiple prisms. Sports, as a business, is ultimately about winning, but now, more than ever, it is about running an organization from top to bottom.

Business catchphrases abound in sports business… sustainability… risk aversion… short-range, mid-range, and long-term goals… invest in the future, without risking the present… How can we be better? All, while keeping an eye on the books, to allow flexibility.

As we set out to determine who the Business of Sports Network MLB Organization for 2007 would be, we looked at everything from how efficiently and effectively clubs spent their player payrolls, to their ability to develop prospects. We looked at how clubs are using or developing their ballpark facilities. We examined how clubs approached growing brand, how nimble they have been at working with both strong and weaker revenue streams, whether they have been innovative, and finally, have they been good community partners.

The staff at the Business of Sports Network poured over the data, and filed who they thought was the best organization, followed by a runner-up, and two honorable mentions. In the end, it was a very close race, with a juggernaut, and a mid-market club that has been able to redevelop themselves vying for the winner.

The following from SBR, outlines this weekend's show: 

We'll discuss the blockbuster Shaquille O'Neal trade with ESPN NBA Insider Ric Bucher on this weekend's edition of Sports Business Radio. We'll also chat about the current NBA landscape in New Orleans (hosting the NBA All-Star game this month) and Seattle as both cities could find themselves without their NBA team in the not so distant future. I'll also give Bucher a chance to take a mulligan on his pre-season NBA Finals picks. Bucher predicted a Houston Rockets vs Detroit Pistons NBA Finals. We'll see if he wants a do-over there. I'm sticking by my prediction that the Phoenix Suns and Boston Celtics will meet in a rematch of the 1976 NBA Finals.

Maury BrownWe'll catch up with Maury Brown from the Business of Sports Network to discuss the top offseason storylines from Major League Baseball (non-PED) - from New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana's record-breaking contract to the latest on the sale of the Chicago Cubs (Sam Zell is now seriously considering selling the Cubs and Wrigley Field separately), we'll give you some insight about the business of MLB.
