The Shift Episode 2: Pitching for keeps
Back by popular demand (or because no one told us to stop), we bring you a new edition of the Shift. Some scheduling conflicts kept Bryan on the sidelines for this one, but Stuart and I soldiered on, discussing which pitcher we would start a franchise with, some recent transactions, and we wrapped up by getting into the nitty-gritty of RA9, a nifty metric that is helpful in analyzing pitcher performance.
On this show we discuss:
- The best young pitchers in baseball
- The newest Yankee, Brian McCann
- Pete Kozma's replacement, Jhonny Peralta
- Joe Smith, Jason Vargas, and Danny Haren
- Better Know a Stat: RA9
- And much, much more!
