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 23, 2018

It all started with a casual observation: the New York Yankees rank first in fastball velocity, and last in fastball usage. That sounds like the team doesn't know what it's doing, but the Baseball Rabbi, Pesach Wolicki, jumped into the rabbit hole to find out what's really going on - and the numbers kept getting curiouser and curiouser. To Scott Kahn's everlasting regret, Pesach discovered that the Yankees are expanding the strike zone in a manner as brilliant as it is unexpected. Join us as we uncover the Yankees' organizational pitching philosophy, and discover that they are at the forefront of an MLB pitching revolution.
