If The Business Of Baseball Isn’t Baseball, Is Baseball A Business?

As Dealbreaker bid a fond farewell to Thornton McEnery this week, it was sad for me personally to know that I’m no longer working with someone who’s been a friend since elementary school and who’d reached out when I became a writing free agent three years ago to see if I’d like to do some sportswriting for the business site where he was the editor. But that sadness is softened in being able to work with Jon Shazar, whom I’ve known since college – a time during which we tried to crowdfund a bid to buy the Montreal Expos.
