For the past few years, MLB's Advanced Media has invested a ton of money into StatCast, an incredible, state-of-the-art system of cameras and radar that tracks every single movement that happens during a Major League Baseball game. As MLB.com has been gathering information and teams have been using it and implementing it to make decisions, we in the public are starting to get a real taste for what this technology can do, and the stories it can tell.
Joining the podcast this week is the face of StatCast, MLB.com's Mike Petriello, who will introduce their two new stats for the 2017, and talk about future items on the agenda, including the creation of a new version of WAR that is still a few years away.
Also, it was another busy week of fake games for the Phillies in spring training. Aside from Brock Stassi mashing everything in sight, Phils beat writer for the Associated Press Rob Maaddi joins the show with the latest news & notes from Clearwater, and to talk about his new book "Baseball Faith."
Plus, why spring training statistics really don't matter when the regular season rolls around, and numberFire's recent fantasy baseball projections have some interesting numbers for your Phils.
