I’ve spent the last few

I’ve spent the last few days in Milwaukee, and went to the Brewers game last night. It was a fun night of baseball at beautiful Miller Park, notwithstanding the fact that the teams weren’t very good. Tomorrow the players may go on strike. The players are almost universally condemned as greedy, but I don’t think that is the problem. I think the problem is that they are irrational. The fundamental issue, I think, is that the players have applied the “labor union” model to a situation where it is wildly inappropriate. If the players would forget about union solidarity and start thinking of themselves as partners in a highly successful business–an unusually lucrative law firm, for example–their decision-making progress would be quite different, and I don’t think we’d be hearing about work stoppages.
