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.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are talented enough that they won the NL Pennant - despite some serious missteps by Dave Roberts. Pesach Wolicki argues that while major parts of managing are hidden from the public, making it impossible for an outside observer to conclusively judge how the manager is doing, we nonetheless can evaluate his in-game tactics and strategy, where Dave Roberts has a lot to learn from Genius Craig Counsell. Pesach and Scott Kahn also discuss the unusual Brewers roster, the fallacy of judging based solely upon outcomes, and the best autographs in their possession (unfortunately, not Tim Raines's).
