Dave Cameron is a bright baseball mind that I wouldn’t hesitate to refer to as brilliant. His deep understanding of the game on all levels somehow translates to easy reading on FanGraphs.com and HardBallTimes.com. There’s a typically stellar post by Dave up at HardBallTimes.com that is the finale of a series of articles with the theme “What I learned about…” Several knowledgable observers weighed in on a variety of baseball topics throughout the series, and Dave’s piece deals with baseball economics.
Many of the various ways that MLB clubs can receive revenue and spend it are covered in Cameron’s points but my favorite is Lesson #6, “The Arbitration Market is the Most Screwed Up”. My sentiments, exactly.
Head over to HardballTimes.com and read the full list of lessons Dave learned:
