Written by Maury Brown   
Wednesday, 31 January 2007 01:50

Jayson StarkIn our continuation of interviews with those that work in the business of baseball, The Biz of Baseball is proud to announce publication of an interview with senior baseball writer for ESPN, Jayson Stark on Monday.

Before he joined ESPN.com and ESPN as a senior baseball writer in 2000, he spent 20 years at the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he covered the Phillies, served as a national baseball columnist and wrote the widely syndicated "Week in Review" column which appeared in a bunch of papers all over the country. He has also been a columnist for Baseball America for two decades, and has written for a number of the big sports publications. 

At ESPN, he has appeared regularly on "Baseball Tonight," SportsCenter, Cold Pizza, Outside the Lines, the Hot List and numerous other ESPN shows. He is also a regular on "Mike and Mike" every Wednesday morning, on radio and ESPN2.

Stark's first book -- The Stark Truth: The Most Overrated and Underrated Players in Baseball History -- will be published by Triumph Books and should appear in bookstores around Memorial Day.

Look for the interview Monday

Biz of Baseball, Cot's Baseball Contracts to Cross Promote
Written by Maury Brown   
Sunday, 28 January 2007 16:46

The Biz of BaseballI'm very pleased to announce that The Biz of Baseball and Jeff Euston of Cot's Baseball Contracts have agreed to a working relationship to cross promote each site, and increase value for those interested in researching the business of baseball.

What does that mean for those that come to The Biz of Baseball?

Moving forward, Biz of Baseball will link back to Cot's when a player is highlighted within a story to allow readers the opportunity to see the details behind that player's contract. We also have added a navigation link to Cot's within our navigation tier to allow you to always access the site from The Biz of Baseball.

How will Cot's work with The Biz of Baseball?

The Biz of Baseball is preparing to launch into an on-going project that will detail baseball history from a business of baseball aspect, as well as provide a detailed glossary of terms that are referenced in the business of baseball. Cot's has much of these details already started, and with that, Biz of Baseball has a starting location.

Can you give some examples of what Biz of Baseball is planning? 

As an example, we will start with the history of each of the 10 Collective Bargaining Agreements; the dates they were signed, the length of them, the key aspects of the agreements, and any other information that is associated with them.  That's a start, but we look to grow this aspect of the site for many years to come so that eventually The Biz of Baseball becomes the premiere research location for the history of MLB from a business of baseball perspective.

Once again, we wish to thank Jeff Euston for this agreement and look forward greatly to this working relationship.

MLB QuestionCall it our open letter to Selig and Fehr...

As we come to the end of 2006, MLB is flourishing on many levels, but as with everything on this earth... nothing's perfect. To that end, I have contacted a number of notable people that work in and around MLB and asked them one question...

What's right and wrong with MLB?

Next week I'll be publishing thoughts from people like Rob Neyer of ESPN, Tim Lemke, who is the sports business reporter from the Washington Times, legendary front office icon Buzzie Bavasi, Alex Belth and Jon Weisman of SI.com, Salon magazine's King Kaufmann, Gary Gillette, Jerry Crasnick and Jonah Keri of ESPN, Baseball Prospectus' Nate Silver and Joe Sheehan, Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus and ESPN, Tal Smith the President of Baseball Operations for the Houston Astros, Boston Herald reporter Michael Silverman, the Director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center Paul Swangard,former Dodger GM Fred Claire, as well as noted sports economists Andrew Zimbalist, Rodney Fort and Roger Noll, just to name a handful of those that have already committed to adding their comments.

Also, one posting from our forums will be selected to be in the article along with the rest of these notable individuals. If you are interested in possibly being selected alongside these individuals, make sure and register and look for details in the Biz of Baseball Forums.

 
New Feature to Biz of Baseball: Forums
Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 05 December 2006 15:30

The Biz of BaseballOver the last few days, the Biz of Baseball has added new content to help you research the off-season. We've presented news on MLB, Minor Leagues, and Independent League baseball. There is Media news, Facility news, Interviews, Articles, Suggested Reading... a lot to read. However, there's been no way to get feedback--to discuss any of the news around the business of baseball.

That has now changed.

The Biz of Baseball has launched forums to allow you to discuss the news that is published here daily. This will be a trial run to see how users enjoy the feature, as well as a chance to see how this feature works in the overall context of Biz of Baseball.com.

We hope you will register, ask questions, answer questions, and discuss matters fitting for the business of baseball types we cater to.

Look for the BizBall Forums link in the left-hand navigation to enjoy this new feature.

Thanks,

Maury Brown
Editor - The Biz of Baseball
