FanGraphs Audio: New Hall President Josh Rawitch Stops By

Episode 938

This week on the show, we welcome the new president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame before a discussion about the New York clubs going in opposite directions.

  • In the first half, David Laurila talks to Josh Rawitch about his new role as they discuss his vision for the Hall of Fame, the most popular features and plaques in the museum, and how much “fame” itself weighs into player voting. They also talk about David insightfully writing back in April that Josh should get the role, and what that was like to read that suggestion from the other end. [2:21]
  • After that, Dan Szymborski is joined by Jay Jaffe to talk about the Yankees and the Mets. Jay recently wrote on “Nasty Néstor” Cortes, who’s came out of nowhere to help to the thriving Yankees rotation. Meanwhile, the Mets are spiraling in the other direction and out of the playoff hunt, and the duo react to the latest bad front office news that arrives live in the middle of recording. [23:29]
