Trying to find a balance

Posted at 12:09 PM on March 29, 2006 by Ben Tesch (1 Comments)

David Schoenfield does an excellent piece on the competitive balance of Major League Baseball. The myth is that small markets will never win, and the same teams get in every year. A lot of people believe it. David does a little number crunching and finds that not only is it not as bad as you probably think, but baseball even has it better than most other professional sports. Surprised the heck out of me.

Two smart moves

Posted at 1:58 PM on March 29, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Smart move #1: The Twins released Dennys Reyes and kept both Baker and Liriano on the big league roster. Baker appears to be penned in at the #5 starter spot, and Radke's new role appears to be keeping Liriano's seat warm.

Smart move #2: The Indians signed Grady Sizemore for a long time and for alot of money. The Indians also have Jhonny Peralta and Victor Martinez locked up for 5 more years. Wow. If they can get Cliff Lee signed to the same kind of deal, watch out.
