Wall Street Journal Econoblog

Skip Sauer and I will be blogging on the Wall Street Journal’s Econoblog later today. (Update: it’s up here.) We “pre-blogged” our posts over the past two days in which we discussed the economics of this year’s free agent market and other topics.

I may be in transit when the discussion is posted, so if you can’t wait for me to post a link, keep an eye out over at the online-WSJ, or check out The Sports Economist (you probably already read it anyway) to see if Skip has a link up. I’ll post a link the moment I can.

Thanks to Skip for the opportunity for the back-and-forth. I think we both had a lot of fun with it. And thanks to Tim Annett for setting this all up.

If you are here for the first time because of Econoblog, welcome! Please, take a look around. And if the site goes down, don’t worry, it will be back up shortly. I’m sorry for the problem , but I’m getting ready to move to a new server very soon.

    We shouldn’t expect perfectly efficient market in baseball players becuase it is such a small market with only 30 firms and such long term guarenteed contracts. With such a small number of firms signing a relatively small number of free-agents every year, it isn’t surprising that teams are slow to react to changing prices.
