Barcelona on top in survey of Global sports salaries

Jumping to the section relevant for baseball:

Four of the five biggest falls were recorded by Major League Baseball teams, including the Toronto Blue Jays, who are down 123 places to No. 172. The New York Yankees were the top-ranked team in the inaugural survey in 2012.

The full report will appear at the link below sometime tomorrow (if sources I’ve seen elsewhere are accurate)- the whole thing may make an interesting read:

So the top 20 is five soccer teams (Barca, Real Madrid, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City) and 15 NBA teams. This makes a lot of sense -- those five soccer teams have essentially unlimited resources, and then of course an NBA roster is smaller than that of any other major sport and an individual starter has vastly more influence on winning and losing than an individual starter in any other major team sport. (On the level of a season; a starting pitcher has potentially more influence on an individual game's outcome.)

Update: The full report has now been uploaded, though I seem to be unable to directly link to it.
