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.

Imagine if there were a skill equivalent to hitting 40 home runs in a season... and no one ever noticed that someone was doing it. Believe it or not, that's how important catcher framing is to a baseball team, and the consequences of that realization are INSANE. (Welcome to the Hall, Brian McCann!) Plus: the Dodgers got worse but will have a better record, the Padres were on the cusp even before signing Machado, and the Giants are a pretty good-looking last place team. Also, a prediction of Marlin ineptitude.
