2023 SABR Analytics Conference Research Awards: Voting Open Now!

After an undesired one week layoff, Jason and I return with all sorts of stuff.  We have email, we have draft talk, we have Manny Banuelos talk and we have Adam Rubin from ESPN New York explaining the financial pickle that the Mets find themselves in. And of course, we have music, we have beverages, and we have arguments about Wal-Mart. Viva la Revolución my good people.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Now I realize why I love Jason, I say that daily. Well, that and the amazing articles.
awesome, if short episode. Kevin - can you post the link for that scorebook you were discussing during the emails? Very intriguing, but was driving at the time, couldn't write it down. Thanks!
