The Stros are one of three teams in Major League Baseball to lose value.
Jim Crane bought the team in 2011 for $610 million, Forbes puts the current value at $530 million.
One potential reason for the drop in worth is the Astros inability to reach a total rights agreement with Comcast Sports Net Houston. The team only got $29 million of the $56 million they say they are due in rights fees.
So now it’s up to the Astros. Maybe this year they’ll surprise us with a home-run season and a few more fans at the ticket window.
