    No Bad Analogies Needed for Baseball Economics

    Let me tell you a little story about a friend I have.  This friend is a chef that owns his own restaurant.  Unfortunately he's not a very good chef, and for that reason, his business struggles.  Customers always ask him to improve his product, but he simply replies that those customers need...
