Seizing the Means of Production

The Baltimore Orioles are awful. Have you seen an Orioles game recently? (Of course, you haven’t.) The starting pitcher is likely to be a guy in his late-20s who you’ve never heard of before, with a fastball topping out at 91 and an ERA somewhere around the high 5s. The lineup is full of nobodies, rookies in misfitting positions, and Chris Davis — the king of bad contracts. Fans are showing up on “Aaron Brooks bobblehead night” so they can sell them on eBay to the fifteen dedicated Orioles fans left.
