A dispatch from Royston, Ga., where the legacy of Ty Cobb remains complicated and fascinating more than 60 years after his death. The @tycobbmuseum serves to give us a better portrait of a man too often reduced to caricature.

Did a story last summer on the resurgence of sports cards during the pandemic. Now I’m curious if the sports NFT market is riding the same wave. MLB recently launched NFTs with @CandyDigital and a Shohei Ohtani 1-of-1 NFT sold tonight for a record $100,000.

Very excited to share this analytics mailbag. Eno and I had a lot of fun answering some really thoughtful questions.

Last season, Minor League players organized around a decades-old housing crisis. In November, MLB promised to solve the crisis once and for all. This season, Minor Leaguers will be holding them to that promise. Full statements here:

MLB’s minor-league housing policy has potential problems, says Advocates for Minor Leaguers: "the policy presents MLB teams the opportunity to cut costs rather than providing proper housing in any of three ways.”

Here’s Jayson with the answers to many of your Hall of Fame questions, including this big one: Would Bonds and Clemens have eventually been elected through the BBWAA vote if the Hall had not reduced a player’s eligibility from 15 to 10 years in 2014?

This is a fascinating, in-depth story from Andy on what it was like for minor-league teams that lost their affiliations with major-league clubs…

What happens when an MiLB team gets kicked out of MiLB? Talked to a dozen former affiliates about life after contraction: “Had to fly the plane as we were building it.” “Financially, it beat the hell out of us.” “One of my favorite years I ever had.”

Shameless self-promotion: MLB seems serious about using WAR in determining player compensation. This... is a terrible idea. But sometimes, you can't talk someone out of a bad idea. So, let's talk about how that would have to work. @baseballpro
