Rabbit hole greatness

The rabbit hole might be my favorite segment of the multitude of podcasts I listen too. I enjoy that they bring in sports that I may not necessarily pay detailed attention too but the analytic lens makes every one of the sports interesting. Sara does a great job trying to keep the crew on subject.

Perfect balance of sports and data

Hosts take an analytical approach to sports discussions, but aren’t crippled by their models. I love the rabbit hole of the week because it’s pretty relatable to random deep dives of my own. I always make sure to download every week.

World Series?

How does a sports show come back from a couple days out from the first WS in which something has never happened in the history of the event (neither team winning a home game in a 7 game series) and barely mention the event in passing?
