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.

Nov 3, 2020

Everyone knows that Kevin Cash made a terrible mistake by removing Blake Snell in the sixth inning of World Series Game Six... everyone, that is, except for the Baseball Rabbi. Pesach analyzes the decision from two directions: Snell's history of early fatigue, as well as what was happening during the game itself (yes, you'll have to rethink the narrative that he was unhittable through five innings). Meanwhile, stat guru Moshe Schorr joins the podcast to offer a completely different angle which NOBODY else considered, and which raises the question of how much a pitcher's dominance through five innings is predictive of his success during the rest of the game.
