Re: Research Paper....
I just found one that is sort of interesting. It was titled "Contraction: 30 is too many". This paper focused on the Florida Marlins AND the Tampa Bay Devil Rays being contracted. It touched on the stadium issue in Miami, and the horrible franchise in Tampa Bay, in regards to public interest/opinion, and the economic impacts of each respective franchise in their markets. This paper was written in 2003-2004, and the little speech accompanying the paper mainly focused on the current pool of talent being too thin, and eliminating teams improving competition. I found it advanced for a college sophomore.
