The Morons welcome Baseball Prospectus Editor in Chief Ben Lindbergh for an in-depth look at the Orioles’ approach to the free agent market, as well as the evolution of the role of advanced statistical metrics in team strategy. They also sing a song, pay tribute to the proud legacy of Wayne Krenchiki, and remember a curious historical incident involving the Sioux Falls Jackanapes and a sandwich board.
You probably already read Baseball Prospectus, but do you listen to their daily podcast Effectively Wild? You should! Ben hosts it, and it’s excellent.
