In an interview with the Associated Press, Victor Matheson, a highly sought after sports economist and professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross, explained why it’s crazy for the Atlanta Braves to abandon a stadium that is less than 20 years old.

“Every owner in every major league sport has stadium envy,” Matheson said. “As soon as someone gets a better stadium, they want one, too.”

Matheson even compared the stadium to a popular young singer.  “I was just thinking,” he said, “Turner Field is not as old as Miley Cyrus.”

The Associated Press column ran in more than 180 media outlets across the country, including the New York Times, ABC News, the Miami Herald, and Yahoo! News.
