DFA Podcast

Ep. 32: The DFA Pads-Cast

On the 32nd episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. take a left turn from their recent discussions about good teams to talk about a bad one: the San Diego Padres. Sure, they talk a bit about Clayton Richard's extension, but it's mainly an excuse to talk about the interesting young players on the Friars' roster and their fascinating skipper, Andy Green.

Welcome back to the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets), are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

Pitcher Similarity Scores

This week Harry and Kendall discuss pitcher similarity scores. Where did they come from? What are they? What can they be used for? And what might they evolve into. This week Kendall learned a little about Ted Williams, and Harry learned something from Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Ep. 31: We're On Fire

On the 31st episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. had so much fun talking about the surging Indians last week, that they choose to follow the same format this week. This time, the topics du jour are the two other playoff teams: the (quiet) Washington Nationals and the (loud) Houston Astros.

Ep. 30: The Cleveland Show

On the 30th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. mix up the format in order to talk about Cleveland's surprising 21-game win streak and the moves and deals that brought them to this point. (Also, they argue about the respective merits of Yandy Díaz vs. Giovanny Urshela. It's a good show anyway.)
