A Golden Age for Baseball in the Golden State

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

Baseball has been experiencing an interesting power shift over the last few years. Just as complaints about east coast bias in baseball coverage became widespread, east coast baseball began to get a lot less interesting. Today California, not New York and Boston is where some of the best and most exciting baseball is likely to be played. Obviously, California has five teams, which is more than New York and Boston combined, but among teams in the northeast, defined relatively broadly, only the Washington Nationals have a good chance of playing deep into October next year. The Nationals are also the only east coast team with exciting young players comparable to those in California.
