No Joy in Angeltown

There's no joy in Angeltown today. Alex Rodriguez, perhap baseball's most talented player, got himself traded to the 800-lb gorilla of a team, none other than the New York Yankees. The Yankees need another superstar like the beach needs another grain of the ocean needs another bucket of water.... like Kobe or Martha need more high-priced lawyers.

This may be the right time to test a novel application of business law's anti-monopoly statutes to professional sports, namely Major League Baseball. An infield with Jeter and A-Rod is clearly an unfair competitive practice.
