Extremely unstructured episode. Hard to listen to.
Do I pay for this crap? I don’t download expecting to have to wade through 10 minutes of non baseball material to get to the trade analysis.
Kiley has great articles, shouldn’t be too hard to keep things tighter.
How about some editing?

With hopes of serious improvements,


First of all if you paid for this podcast, you were scammed.

The nature of fangraphs is to provide some behind the scenes and in general things that are better conveyed through podcast format than written format. They aren’t meant to replace articles because, well, that’s what articles are for. They also aren’t meant to be all about baseball because Effectively Wild, also presented on this site, does that.

It would be kind of boring if this podcast just regurgitates what’s already written on the site and bantered on a separate podcast already, don’t you think?


We obviously have different views.
I think this particular episode sucked, for the reasons stated.
You seems to think otherwise.
Look, I get the idea of “off the cuff” banter. It just doesn’t work very well here.
Why should I listen to a baseball pod if they don’t talk Baseball? I could as well listen to any lifestyle podcast.
The raison d’etre for the pod is baseball. Not banter on editing or home improvement.
