Prospectus Today: Off the Field

0

Joe Sheehan

Some news away from the diamond got a bit lost in all the baseball last month.

In looking back, there's not as much good material left on the cutting-room floor as I thought there was, so I'm going to skip it. Apparently, I do a better job of leaving the weak stuff behind on a day-to-day basis than I think I do, and yes, you're welcome to treat that sentence as a set-up line.

Joe Sheehan

Last week, I wrote about what baseball can do to improve the selection of owners. This week, I want to focus on the game's structure. Frankly it's a column that, if I thought I could get away with it, would consist of six words: Stop trying to be the NFL. Since 1994, when the game went to three divisions in each league and began allowing non-division winners into the playoffs, MLB has moved inexorably toward becoming Just Another Sports League. While the game's administrators like to defend the changes by invoking the need to appeal to young people and a broad audience of sports fans, the fact is that every single move has been reactionary, every one has eliminated a point of differentiation between MLB and the other three major sports, and none of them have shown any level of insight beyond: "How can we get more TV money right now?"

As the table below shows, media revenues are heavily affected by the size of a club's local market. For example, the Mets and Diamondbacks have identical media contracts on a per capita basis, but because the New York metropolitan area is so much larger, the Mets gross $32 million more.
