How much are the Boston Red Sox worth? A Globe business columnist does the math, based on the recent sale of a 1 percent stake in the team. The answer: $1.54 billion, not counting the premium put on owning full control.
That’s more than double the $700 million Henry, Werner and Otten put up to buy the team in 2001-02. No wonder Henry had no problems with the Matsuzaka posting fee. It was just 3.5 percent of the team’s total value.
