MLB Pays $1.2 Million for Rockies.Com
Yesterday, this is what Rockies.com looked like:
Today, it’s much more purple and that bear is now Carlos Gonzalez. Otherwise, it looks about the same.
Still, it’s fairly shocking news because even to a well-oiled corporate machine like Major League Baseball, $1.2 million is a lot of money. But what if you wanted to buy back a couple other sites? According to Worth of Web.com:
- MLB.com - $25.3 million
- MiLB.com - $772,000
- Baseball Reference - $2.2 million
- Sex.com - $13 million
- Fart.com - $1,696
And how about this venerable institution? Well, let’s just say I won’t be packing up and retiring just yet.
