Dodgers = The Suck

leave a comment »

Yankees blog covers it well and explains why the Dodgers need to be competently run.

I just don’t get why either LA franchise, either Chicago franchise, or either New York franchise can even be bad absent serious mismanagement. Those teams should always be good, along with the Red Sox. Those are the largest media markets, with huge fanbases and gigantic money to be earned from media. So it is ridiculous that any of those teams are ever not good.

An Open Plea to David Einhorn

leave a comment »

Mr. Einhorn

I am a baseball fan, and although I don’t particularly like the Mets, I do think that them being kind of, er, bad isn’t good for (National League) baseball. Though I am almost as wildly unsuccessful at life as you are successful, I was kind of hoping you would take what I have to say to heart.

Please, do baseball fans everywhere a favor and push the Wilpons out. Please, for the love of sunshine, hot dogs, well-turned double plays, and nail-biting late-inning heroics, take charge of the New York National League ball club and push the Wilpons right on out of the door.

Thank you, sir, and I hope very much you enjoy your new role.

 

Sincerely,

Jon Vedamuthu

 

P.S. I am also very pleased that your background includes robust experience with mathematical and statistical evaluative techniques. After reading Jonah Keri’s The Extra 2% I hope more “quants” get involved in baseball.
