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.

Jun 18, 2019

It's been asked regarding Victor Hugo whether a creative genius can also be relatively unintelligent; the baseball equivalent might be whether a member of the 400 home run club can also be a mediocre player. The answer, evidently, is yes (Hi there, Adam Dunn!); but was this always true? Does the same analysis apply to players with 500 HRs? Pesach and Scott also analyze rookies Mike Soroka, Brandon Lowe, and Bryan Reynolds, all of whom are playing great - but maybe, just maybe, not quite as great as their obvious stats suggest. Plus: Hyun-Jin Ryu and how we all saw this coming.
