Offseason of Discontent


Will Leitch

Will Leitch profiles the Cardinal fans' love for their team, how it allows the team to play bigger than their market, and how that level of support could be coming to an end.

The four teams that come up the most often: Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. Because the cities these teams reside in are so much smaller than New York and Los Angeles, and because there isn't much relative cash in television contracts and massive merchandising deals, the thought is that they can't compete.

Under The Knife: A Day in the Life


Will Carroll

The second most frequent question I get after "What the [bleep] is wrong with Nick Johnson?" is "How do you do what you do?" My friend Robert Herzog called me on my radio show last year and really grilled me. He's a friend now, but it was really an annoying question. At the time, my answer was "lots of phone calls and a lot of perseverance." True, yes, but not really the key to it. Becoming a baseball injury analyst was something of a wonderful accident of luck and timing. Under The Knife started as my answer to another injury analyst who gave incorrect information and answered a question with, "What do you expect for a hundred bucks?" I'd had just enough coffee in me that day to think that I could do better.

It took four years of working as a student athletic trainer on all sports, including baseball. It took medical training. It took the creativity to diagnose something from afar. It's at times like a giant puzzle; I get enough pieces to put things together, but I don't have the box cover to go off of and there are always pieces missing.

The Numbers (Part Two)


Doug Pappas

Part One

The second column of MLB's financial disclosures sets forth each club's purported revenues from local television, radio, and cable contracts. 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.
