Old-school

I like the podcast okay, but the way that they talk about analytics isn't that great. They use them, which is good, but I feel like it’s presented wrong. This is not a good podcast if you’re not a 50+ year old man.

I prefer “Talking Baseball” by Jomboy Media

Producer?

I love the podcast. The producer should know a bit about baseball history if he has a speaking role.
