FanGraphs Audio: Jay Jaffe Figuratively Embraces the Lotte Giants

Episode 886

On this edition of FanGraphs Audio, I welcome FanGraphs senior writer Jay Jaffe to the program. Jay and I discuss his impressions of the first week of KBO action, the teams he finds the most compelling, and the differences between the KBO and MLB that he has appreciated most. We also discuss his recent piece on the impact that the cancellation of Induction Weekend has had on the Hall of Fame, as well as the people and small businesses of Cooperstown.
