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.

A good tip would be to read everything Schoenfield writes. Dude's brillint.
