SF Giants Podcast Ep. 13 ft. Dr. Nola Agha: MiLB Realignment, Player Development, More
By Marc Delucchi
Sound the Foghorn is FanSided’s flagship SF Giants podcast hosted by Around the Foghorn co-site expert Marc Delucchi. A new episode comes every week (typically every Sunday) with a different guest to offer their own perspective and analysis of the Giants, other happenings around professional baseball, and beyond.
In this week’s episode, Marc is joined by Dr. Nola Agha, an associate professor of sports management at the University of San Francisco. They discuss her path to researching professional sports academically and dive into her work examining the economic impact of minor-league teams. They examine this winter’s minor-league realignment and ponder what it could mean for cities, players, and the sport alongside discussions about where MLB teams should go from here if they prioritize winning. To keep up with Dr. Agha’s work, you can follow her on Twitter @NolaAgha.
