Who wouldn’t like college work spread throughout the Internet almost 40 years later?
“This answer is not known at this time, but it appears that baseball is moving head-on toward the answer. If tickets reach a price level of ten dollars per person, it will cost a family of four at least fifty dollars to attend a game, which would seem to push the game out of the price level of the average family. Attending a game would become a novelty, and the average fan who is the true supporter of the team ...
Some more info about the change at the top in Boston. It includes some interesting quotes, including this one:
Dombrowski said he saw an MLB network segment this spring in which Ramirez was ranked the No. 1 left fielder in baseball entering the season.
“I remember at the time saying, ‘How can people make that statement when they don’t know if he can play left field or not?”’

One of the clubs, according to a person familiar with the talks, was the Washington Nationals.
The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the topic.
I don’t believe the Red Sox will de-emphasize the numbers. It’s all about best integrating scouting and sabermetrics.
The Red Sox will not completely abandon the numbers; these days, all teams blend the subjective and objective, only to different degrees.

But once Dombrowski gets rolling, the Red Sox could be formidable ...
With the Tigers at the end of a good run, it might be a good time for Dombrowski to head to a new place.
One name that could be added to that list: Dave Dombrowski, the club’s president and general manager for 14 seasons.
Dombrowski’s contract expires at the end of October, and on Friday he declined to speak about his status when contacted by FOX Sports. However, major-league sources say there’s been no recent progress toward an extension for Dombrowski.
