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 15, 2018

The New York Yankees might win 100 games in 2018, but are likely to get into the playoffs only if they win a sudden death Wild Card Game. The Cleveland Indians almost certainly will win fewer than 100 games, and they're virtually a lock for a playoff spot. Is this as unfair as it sounds? Join Baseball Rabbi Pesach Wolicki and Scott Kahn for a discussion about the MLB playoff system - both in 2018 and throughout history - in order to answer the pressing question, once and for all, of whether Yankee fans have a serious argument, or are just a bunch of whiners. Also - why Cleveland, even with a terrific run differential, isn't nearly as good as they seem.
