The average MLB team is now worth 1.2 billion, which is a 48% increase over last year. MLB's new national TV media contracts with Fox, TBS, and ESPN kicked in last year; worth 1.55 billion yearly on average over 8 years. More than double the previous contract! The total national media revenue for all of MLB's team's increased 660 million between 2010-2014. Local media revenue will continue to increase as huge broadcast deals are set to start the next couple years.

Fairly equal ratio between all revenue streams. Each seem to serve as an essential component to success and/or failure, depending on the team.

I'm curious to know how much more teams from other sports have grown over the same period. Is the MLB ahead or behind the curve set by other sports?

MLB is definitely ahead at least in terms of team payroll. There's no salary cap in the MLB, which I think should be the model that other professional sports leagues move to.
