5. Chicago Cubs

Current Team Value: $2.2 billion

Revenue 2015: $340 million

Operating Income 2015: $51 million

The Cubs made the postseason for the first time since 2008 after five straight fifth place finishes in the NL Central and ace Jake Arrieta won the Cy Young Award and third baseman Kris Bryant captured Rookie of the Year.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

So, Ricketts bought the team for $800M, now worth $2.2B. Add in the $600M they're spending on ballpark improvements and you're at $800M in equity plus whatever profit they've made the past 5 years, let's say $200M and you're looking at $1B before-tax profit if they sold the team tomorrow, even if they funded the remaining construction. Not bad.

But Donald Drumpf told me they were a terribly run organization.
