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.

Jul 7, 2020

Bobby Bonilla Day has come and gone, but the Baseball Rabbi isn't in the mood to celebrate the Mets' futility; Pesach and Scott would rather talk about why buying Bonilla out was a smart move for everyone. (Don't worry, there are plenty of other reasons to mock New York's NL club.) More importantly, in honor of the Negro Leagues' centennial, they try to guess (with some help from metrics) where Satchel Paige ranks all time among pitchers. Plus: Sparky Anderson signed a baseball, and in his honor Pesach looks into his managerial career, and slightly less illustrious - but still unique - playing career. And the baseball? We're giving it away on Sparky Day. Listen in to find out more.
