Based on an annual report released by the MLB Players Association, the average salary in MLB for the 2011 season was $3,095,183, up $80,611 or 3 percent from 2010.

The Angels jump from an end of year ranking of 13 to 4 this year, presumably due to the Vernon Wells trade posting an average salary by mean at $4,584,746 for 28 players.

At the bottom end, the Royals posted the lowest mean of $1,335,672 for 26 players).

Twenty-one players with 100 or more games at first base led all positions with the highest average salary of $8,899,486.

Rockies Organizational ReportIn a continuation of The Biz of Baseball’s Organizational Reports, we are now featuring the franchise that is becoming one the most all-rounded in baseball: The Colorado Rockies.

Are the Colorado Rockies an aberration or the real deal? Has the team that struggled for years developed an identity, an identity based around young talent with a strong management team?

The Rockies early beginnings all started with the city of Denver showing their support in a way that was beyond what the other cities could provide. In December 1990, the NL announced that Denver, South Florida (which would land the Florida Marlins), Tampa-St. Pete, Orlando, Washington, D.C., and Buffalo were finalists for expansion teams.

Why was Colorado the front-runner? The fans and the city. The Denver-area voters on their own accord began implementing a 0.1% sales tax that would help finance the construction on the team’s stadium.

Denver’s commitment to excellence was shown early in 1991, as discussed by Chuck Javernick, who was head of the ticket selling team at those early stages. Chuck is now the director of ticketing services and Spring Training business operations. The goal was to sell 20,000 tickets from the start.

“It took us four weeks to accomplish it and go beyond, "We went over 21,000 season ticket commitments.” I’m a big baseball fan and a native of Colorado, so I believed in it. And I had worked with the Colorado Baseball Partnership for some time prior and talked to a lot of people who felt the same way."

At the beginning, the fane base was never in question, but the early ownership and their finances were.

Original ownership led by Michael I. Monus who was accused of embezzling funds and falsifying profits at Phar-Mor Inc. was in legal trouble due to a $350 million fraud scandal that almost doomed the team from the get-go. Jerry McMorris, the highest-ranking official in the ownership group along with business partner Charlie Monfort saved the team. Roy Romer, who at the time was governor, played an integral part in saving the franchise.

"Gov. Romer had several meetings with the partners and really got behind the project," McMorris said. "There was one meeting early on when he went around the room -- 'Who are you and how much money do you have?' He did what was necessary."

Of those above-mentioned possible franchise locations, only two were chosen; the aforementioned city of Colorado and Florida. Florida who would later become the Marlins will have their own financial issues to deal with.

Fay Vincent, who was the MLB Commissioner at the time, announced that both leagues would be involved to compensate the newly appointed franchises, sharing revenue generated by the $190 million expansion fee. The American and National Leagues would both contribute players in the upcoming expansion draft (read The Biz of Baseball interview with Fay Vincent).

On July 5, 1991 at a local press conference, the team was unveiled to the public. The team would begin play at Denver’s Mile High Stadium, home of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League. Mile Hile was a starting point for the team until Coors Field would be open to play on Apr. 26, 1995.

Red Sox Org Report

In a continuation of The Biz of Baseball’s Organizational Reports, we are now featuring the franchise that has been one of the most successful in all of baseball: The Boston Red Sox.

After years of heartbreak, the Boston Red Sox are quite arguably the crown jewel of Major League Baseball, the epitome of the way a team can be run. Building through the draft, and a vision of excellence in the front office, the Red Sox Nation has been continuously growing in the past five years. Why have the Red Sox been able to sustain excellence while one set of teams continue to struggle despite brief success; Detroit Tigers, and others have put together a historic streak of losing; Pittsburgh Pirates.

A level of success was born when former Florida Marlins owner John Henry teamed up with Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino. They,  along with other investors, purchased the team from the Jean R. Yawkey trust, for $700 million in 2002. Since the merger, the Red Sox have four post-season appearances in the last five years and two World Series Championships; 2004 defeating the St. Louis Cardinals and in 2007 defeating the Colorado Rockies.

However, what specifically is it that the Red Sox do that set them apart from the rest of the teams. If you dissect the team, they do three things very well, Player Development, Office and Field Management and a strong fan base.

YankeesIn a continuation of The Biz of Baseball’s Organizational Reports, we are now featuring the franchise that most clubs are envious of, and all strive to defeat: The New York Yankees.

The 2009 New York Yankees are looking like the team that will pull out all of the stops to win another championship. This is not the team that won 3 out of 4 Championships in the late 90’s to 2000; this is the Yankee team, which will spend as much as it can, to get what it wants. The Yankees are playing “Moneyball”, but their own version.

Sabathia, Teixeira, Burnett

The team began its rebuilding stage for only one reason: 89 wins, and zero playoff games last season. How do you solve a problem like that? Spend $423.5 million dollars, on two starters, C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, and a first baseman that could have possible created the best 1st and 3rd corners in the game, Mark Teixeira. As A.J. Burnett put it, “Whether you want to admit it or you love them or you hate them everybody wants to be a Yankee.” A.J. Burnett has been at best, a number two starter up until last year, making 34 starts, but in the previous four years, his starts go something like this…..25, 21, 32 and 19. Those figures, however, still landed him with a 5 year, $82.5 million deal with the Bronx Bombers. Will Burnett be able to handle the high profile of New York? Possibly, but when the pressure was on in Toronto, apologies were made to the Blue Jays fans after a sarcastic wave of the hat to the crowd after of string of bad starts. Are we looking at legit number two or “Black Jack” McDowell?

The Yankees have also added C.C. Sabathia, the plum of this year's free agency crop, signing the eight year veteran to a staggering 7-year, $161 million dollar deal. The Yankees will hold their collective breaths this year, hoping Sabathia is healthy and holds up under the pressure of the New York media market. You never know how a player willl perform under the glare of being a Yankee, but here are a couple stats, both good and bad for the organization. Burnett is 6-3 lifetime against the Yankees and 5-0 vs. the Boston Red Sox. Sabathia, however, owns a 1-8 lifetime record against the Yankees, while going 2-4 against the Red Sox. Teixeira on the other hand solves a nasty problem that has been plaguing the Yankees for a few years: hitting against left-handed pitching. Last year they were 10-15 while facing lefties on the road, and Teixeira brings a lifetime .309 average against lefties replacing Jason Giambi’s 2008 average of .231.
