Social Distancing Sports

With many staying home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, sports fans, including myself, are trying to find ways to stay engaged.

Now is a fascinating time to take stock of the future of the wide receiver position at the NFL level. On a broad level, Andy Reid’s quote that the college game is generally five years ahead of the pros has proved prescient, as the Air Raid offenses that came to define NCAA football in the...

The MLB Has a Competitive Balance Issue, and It’s Related to Money and Payroll Inequalities

At the end of the 2019 regular season, the top four records in Major League Baseball should not have been a surprise: the Astros, Dodgers, Yankees, and Twins all put up 100+ win seasons, with the Marlins, Orioles, Tigers, and Royals suffering from brutal seasons of under 60 wins. In today’s MLB, this oligopoly of...
