This is a trenchant analysis that is courageous for exposing MLB owners as business buccaneers who ruthlessly protect their monopoly. Such illegal restraint of trade comes at the high cost degrading our previously organic cities and neighborhoods. Thank you!

Let me do my boosterism bit here: the beauty of Substack as platform is that these kinds of voices are heard. It's a terrific piece and got me thinking about stuff I hadn't considered before, like why did I fall out of love with baseball? (It's more like a nodding acquaintance these days)

I appreciate the note, Doug. I think a nodding acquaintance is perfectly fine. To me, it relates to the idea of baseball being “connective tissue.” It’s there doing it’s job, but you don’t really need to think about it.
