On this episode of the Sports Info Solutions Baseball Podcast, Mark Simon (@MarkASimonSays) is joined first by Eno Sarris (@enosarris) of The Athletic to talk about the trends to watch in MLB this season.
Eno discusses what people should know about seam shifted wake and the pitchers for which it might be the most pertinent (0:48). He also talks about the rule changes at the minor league level and which are most important to note (7:49). Other items discussed include the deadening of the baseball (10:35), the concern over Fernando Tatis' 14-year contract (11:33), and who's winning the World Series if the Mets, Yankees, Dodgers or Padres don't (14:06).
Eno is followed by Dr. Phil Klotzbach (@philklotzbach), a baseball fan and meteorologist at Colorado State University. He explains the research he does on hurricanes and draws parallels between hurricane predicting and baseball predicting (16:20).
Then, Alex Vigderman (@vigmanoncampus) joins Mark to talk about their takeaways from last weekend's SABR Analytics Conference (31:40).
