In today's New York Times, there is an op-ed piece by Michael Lewis about how baseball's revenue sharing isn't working as it was intended.

On October 28, Michael Lewis penned a lengthy piece for the New York Times (I'm guessing he might have used a computer instead of a pen) about kickers in the NFL.

So, is Mr. Moneyball busy? No.

It's just that the New York Times is using two Michael Lewises.

The one who wrote about revenue sharing is a marketing professor at Washington University  (the school in St. Louis, not the University of Washington in Seattle.)

Joe Morgan's nemesis wrote about NFL kickers.

At least I think so.

I believe plural of "Michael Lewis" would be "Michael Lewi"

'Lewi' would be the plural of 'Lewus'. If it were first declension. The 'Lewis' could have a Greek plural, 'Lewes', like 'basis', but there isn't any 'w' in Greek.
Of course, we're both just talking out of our ani.
