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 18, 2020

Last week, Pesach demonstrated that almost every pitcher gets worse each time through the batting order, and - now that teams have figured this out - starting pitching may never be the same. But does that mean that the great pitchers' duels are a thing of the past? Does that rule hold true even for the greatest pitchers of all time? Who are the exceptions, and what does that teach us about their greatness? Plus: news and notes about the Dodgers, Mets, Indians, A's, Astros, and Rangers. (Scott provides some notes about the Red Sox, too. The theme: the Baseball Reference World Series projection of 0.5% seems almost impossibly high.)
