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.

Sep 1, 2021

The San Francisco Giants have been the surprise of the baseball season; they could lose every game until the end of the season and still end up with a record significantly better than we anticipated back in April. How, exactly, are they doing it? That's where the questions start, but not where they end; there's something weird happening by the Bay, and it could be incredible coaching, some advantage conferred by advanced analytics... or something else? Whatever it is, Pesach and Scott lay out the facts and why those facts are surprising. Plus: the Reds are going to the Wild Card game and the Padres are not, the Yankees look like the best team in baseball, the potential Boston-New York Wild Card game could be a classic, the Mets are booing their own fans, and more on the Field of Dreams game that Pesach trashed last time.
