FanGraphs Audio: Eric Longenhagen Has Some Information

Episode 681
Lead prospect analyst Eric Longenhagen is the guest on this edition of the pod, during which he discusses Matt Bowman, park effects, and assessing a prospect’s ability to benefit (or not) from information; attempts to identify those skills which might allow a pitcher, like Mike Leake or (nearly) Rick Porcello, to bypass the minor leagues entirely; and explores an anxious moment from his own sporting youth.
