Dave Cameron is the managing editor of FanGraphs. During this edition of FanGraphs Audio he examines Boston’s recent trades for Aaron Hill and Brad Ziegler, whether it’s another case of Dave Dombrowski overpaying with prospects for present help; discusses his trade-value series and the challenges of evaluating players (like Jake Lamb) whose current production deviates wildly from previously established levels; and also addresses the omission of Clayton Kershaw from the list entirely.
Also, note: the Practical Analytics portion of the program wanders accidentally into the province of Real Talk. Listeners are encouraged to skip roughly to 16:00 if they have little interest in such matters.
This episode of the program either is or isn’t sponsored by SeatGeek, which site removes both the work and also the hassle from the process of shopping for tickets.
