Welcome to The Baseball Rabbi Podcast - where Pesach Wolicki and Scott Kahn talk sabermetrics and baseball history, with a dose of fandom, fWAR, and Fenway.

Oct 8, 2018

After striking out batter number 300, Max Scherzer gave a shout-out to Matt Wieters for being the best at catching foul tips... but Scherzer provided no evidence for his claim. Is he right? Can we measure it? More to the point, does it even matter? The Baseball Rabbi put stat guru Moshe Schorr on the case (because when Scherzer talks, it's worth paying close attention). Plus: more about pitching in and out of the zone, and the most memorable games we've ever watched. (Also, Pesach Wolicki disses Fenway based on a game he and Scott Kahn attended in 1998.)
