FanGraphs Audio: The 2017 Over/Under Prospect Game

Episode 714
Lead prospect analyst Eric Longenhagen is the guest on this edition of the pod, which also represents the inaugural edition of the Over/Under Prospect Game.

Here’s how to play:

  • Contestant A nominates a rookie-eligible player.
  • Contestant A also sets an over/under figure for that player’s WAR in 2017.
  • Contestant B chooses the over or under.

For this inaugural edition, both Longenhagen and the idiot host have nominated five players, for a total of 10 overall. Click here to see the results.

This is actually great, because Eric matches Carson’s enthusiasm in this utterly inconsequential exercise. The result is a weird, belabored, non-competitive pissing contest of the obscure. Top shelf pre-season pod
