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.

Aug 4, 2020

The Marlins are suffering from an outbreak of the coronavirus; Pesach points his finger at Don Mattingly, saying that he should be fired as a result. (And yes, this was discussed on the Baseball Rabbi Discussion Group on Facebook - but Pesach has a lot more information now and thinks it's even more egregious that the media have largely been giving Mattingly a pass.) Meanwhile, a listener asks about Mike Trout's surprising RBI numbers, wondering if this is indicative of any sort of problem in his game. (The answer is interesting even for fans who discount RBIs entirely.) Plus 2020 pitching and hitting trends which indicate the direction baseball is headed.
