The novel The Money Pitch provides an insiders look at the inner-workings of the nation's most popular sport. It uncovers the mysteries behind salary setting and arbitration accurately, since the author is an arbitrator himself. Interspersed with salary analysis are interesting anecdotes about players of the past including one account of how the Hernandez brothers, Livan and Orlando, made it to the majors from Cuba. The basic supply and demand principles of economics are readily applicable to baseball, and the marginal utility of a player to one club determines if they choose to submit an offer to him during free agency. The novel probes the question of whether it just to give a baseball player a multi-million dollar contract. I personally think it is absurd, and the author may agree, but these athletes must be payed in the same manner as other athletes and entertainers.Was this review helpful?
