Host Brandon Day is joined by Dan Szymborski, creator and operator of the ZIPS Projection System and writer for FanGraphs. We commiserated over the duel misery of the Tigers and Orioles franchises and took a look at the Tigers rebuild. The discussion ranges over projecting baseball players, the future of sports gambling, the impact of data on player development, and a host of tangents and digressions from Tom Selleck to Len Koenecke.
You can find his latest piece on the Tigers’ season here and you’ll find his work at ESPN as well as at FanGraphs.
