Baseball has more parity

Find an hour on SiriusXM NFL Radio when you don’t hear the words “any given Sunday” and you’ll shock me.  The idea the the NFL is somehow more balanced than other sports, giving every team a better chance to succeed is not necessarily true in recent years according to ESPN:

• Which sport has had more parity lately? It isn’t even that close. Over the last six seasons, 36 of the NFL’s 72 playoff teams repeated. That’s 50 percent. But over in baseball, only 19 of 48 repeated. That’s 39.6 percent.
