I am surprised that in the NY Times article, you actually suggest that there is some way to know the “true” culprit of what ruined baseball. An interesting alternative explanation, yes; but to assert that it is truth is preposterous. The number of other potential explanations is vast. You do a disservice to economics as a field by suggesting that we can truly know the cause of something as general as what ruined baseball.
It’s on the op-ed page. There is no way that I can prove this to be the case anymore than I can prove Eve wasn’t made from the rib of Adam via divine intervention. I think that point is obvious. The evidence (which includes more than what I presented in the article) indicates to me that expansion played a big role in home run hitting and that steroids haven’t been nearly as important. That is merely my opinion, and I have no problem with anyone disagreeing with me.
