Rays ranked "smartest spenders" among all pro sports teams by Bloomberg Businessweek



The Rays were named the "smartest spenders" among all major pro sports teams by Bloomberg Businessweek.

The ranking, of the 122 MLB, NFL, NHL and NBA teams, are designed to determine how well the teams spend their money, using regular and post-season records and payroll data to calculate what teams spent per win over the last five seasons (and the first half of this baseball season), then each team is compared against league average, producing a total called the "efficiency index.”

The Rays were first, the Bucs 59th and the Lightning 76th.
