Baseball Prospectus’ managing editor Craig Goldstein joins the program to discuss his new job, his cats, and then, in a far more serious turn, the state of baseball dissembling, including what teams promise, but perhaps really mean, when they prize “financial flexibility,” how we talk about the changes we’ve seen to the baseball, and how the Cubs have talked about Addison Russell. We got a little spicy at times, and forced Dylan Higgins to edit out several swears.
Craig’s piece on financial flexibility can be found here.
