Millennials, Recency Bias, and the Death of Baseball

Every single weekday of 2014—arguably the busiest year of my life; the year in which I became a homeowner and a father—I went on ESPN.com and voted in the Sports Nation Polls. That probably sounds like a terrible waste of time, but the reality of
