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.

Apr 10, 2019

Everyone knows that stats after eleven games are meaningless... everyone, that is, but the Baseball Rabbi. Join Pesach and Scott as they look at storylines that seem to be developing (Jason Heyward learning how to hit, the Cubs forgetting how to pitch, and the Dodgers continued brilliance as a franchise), and investigate the connection between higher strikeout rates, more walks, the decline of the fastball, and the rise of the slider. Plus a celebration of the incredible opening week of the Boston Red Sox. (By the way, stats this early truly are meaningless, except the stats that are not.)
