W hat goes together in the good
ol' U.S.A.? Baseball, hot dogs,
apple pie, and Chevrolet. American
as capitalism, right?
You remember capitalism's
virtues, as taught to you by your
Econ professors? Maximum
efficiency and happiness at the
minimum price. Sounds great. But
let's look at the above exhibits and
see if they really are as American as
-Chevrolet - U.S. car
companies are hardly in what one
would call a perfect capitalist

market. In theory, a perfect
capitalist market allows anyone
with a few bucks and a few guts to
try and make a few more bucks. But
the big three have the U.S. market
nearly cornered.
What happens when someone
else attempts to corner a little of
the big boys' territory? John
DeLorean tried. Since then his wife
dumped him, he's been tried in
court twice, and he's resorted to
taking out newspaper ads asking for
donations to help him with court
costs. Messing with American
institutions such as the car
companies is as un-American as
telling your mom you don't like
her home-made apple pie - but
what of it? Mousse is all the rage
these days.
-Hot dogs - Like the
automobile market, the hot dog
market is a monopoly of sorts. Ball
Park Franks and Oscar Mayer are
tops. After that, one has to put up
with dogs like those served at
Michigan athletic events. The latter

would most appropriately be served
with a keg of Goebel's. The thing
that goes best with beer and
weenies is...
-Baseball - By now all should
be convinced that the best things in
America have little to do with
perfect capitalism, and have more in
common with monopolistic
markets. Over the past year, it has
become apparent that baseball is no
longer a free market in which
players sell their services at the
highest bid. Major league owners
suddenly hold the upper hand.
Perhaps most aware of this
phenomenon are Detroit Tiger fans.
Last year they watched Kirk Gibson
haggle with Tiger management
until the signing deadline.
This year, those same fans
watched a similar situation unfold
not once, but twice. Jack Morris
threatened to sell his services
outside of Detroit, and brought to
several owners what Morris and his
agent called "an offer they couldn't
refuse." The owners refused. No

one, not even the owner of Morris'
hometown Twins, wanted the
winningest pitcher of the 1980s.
Lance Parrish laughed at the
Tigers' offer to him, and went
shopping for a new team.
Philadelphia looked as if it might
be the city to give Parrish liberty
from Detroit management. But the!
Phillies made an offer that Parrish
called "pathetically insulting."
Have the owners, to the horror
of all economists, formed an illegal
trust? Probably. Is this
monopolistic market bad for
baseball fans? No way.
The owners remember players
such as Wayne Garland, one of the
early free agents. Once a 20-game
winner, Garland signed a huge4
contract with the Cleveland Indians,
then promptly did his best to allow
six earned runs a game (nearly twice
what Morris allowed last year).
Garland's career soon ended.
Remember John Mayberry? Rennie
Stennett? Ed Whitson? How many
championships did these men win
after they became free agents?
Detroit, in its last championship
year, had one major free agent1

Free agents have done little to
help teams win, and smart baseball
minds want little to do with them.
Smart fans should want little to do
with them, either.
