The Minnesota Small-Market Con

While I may disagree with Bud Selig’s arguments regarding small-market franchises and what needs to be done to support them, there is no argument against Milwaukee’s position as a small market. With 882,210 television homes in its media market, per Nielsen, only Cincinnati (868,900) is a smaller major-league market. Milwaukee ranks 35th and Cincinnati ranks 36th; along with Kansas...

How to fix baseball

One of the beauties of baseball is that the game is timeless. You can run out of innings, but never out of time. It’s what separates baseball from football, basketball, and hockey. That was once a good thing — when baseball was the national pastime. It no longer holds that title, as it has been surpassed by football, and arguably basketball, as sports more connected to the current...
