Baseball’s biggest news, trends, trades and highlights, all broken down from an analytical angle. Each week, MLB.com’s Matt Meyers and Mike Petriello are joined by guests from around the league to keep you up-to-date on the Majors’ most important topics using the same data as cutting-edge MLB front offices.
Boston Globe writer Alex Speier joins MLB.com's Mike Petriello to explain how David Ortiz's exit velocity proves he still can be a force. Plus, Speier expands on the idea that you can turn complicated numbers into simplified, useful concepts that enhance the game of baseball. Ted Berg, writer at USA Today's For The Win also joins the show. Berg explains how head-first sliding isn't the quickest way to the base (and has the numbers to prove it) and despite what fans think, explains why Curtis Granderson is having a strong season at the plate.
