Artificial Turf Wars Ep. 56: Statcast, Starters, and Superman


Episode 56

Mike Petriello of stops by to discuss Statcast and its effect on our ability to understand what is going on in the game of baseball. He goes into depth on the process by which stats are created, discusses some stats that didn’t work out as hoped, and goes into the notion that Statcast can be overbearing at time for viewers. Greg and Josh also discuss the 3-3 week, the mounting injuries (this time to Russell Martin and Kendrys Morales), the resurgence of Roberto Osuna, the rotation shuffle, and Kevin Pillar’s incredible catch against Cleveland. Finally, they answer listener questions and Josh attempts to handle two Stump the Josh questions!
