Welcome to the 2007 Zindex World Series!
BaaaaahhhhSTUN! For you Cleveland fans, we won’t even mention the third-base coach’s name or infer that his blown call sent the Indians into a tailspin en route to a 11-2 loss in the deciding game of the ALCS. And we also won’t bring up the fact that you guys are at the epicenter of the mortgage meltdown. We feel for you, Cleveland! But, time to make room for the Boston Red Sox vs. the Colorado Rockies in the World Series that begins Wednesday.
Leading up to the Series, we thought it might be a little fun to do a little Tale of the Tape and toss out some numbers, comparing Denver (home of the Rockies) to Boston (Red Sox):
|Teams||Colorado Rockies||Boston Red Sox|
|Forbes Value||$317 million||$724 million|
|More Denver facts||More Boston facts|
Wow, it looks like Boston in a landslide! Boston’s numbers dwarf Denver’s in almost every way except for median household income, which is a number sorely out of whack with the rest of the figures on this chart. Please keep in mind that these figures are from the 2000 Census and are part of neighborhood data that we have for most major metropolitan areas of the country. Find your city here and see how the numbers compare. As you can see, Boston won the Zindex World Series, $410,211 to $211,282, but don’t rule out the little guy on the field in 2007; Colorado is known to punish in mile-high ways.
