We talked with Jared Diamond about recent MLB rules changes. Specifically related to one of our favorite subjects, two-way players. We address how teams will have to designate players as, pitchers, hitters, or two-way and what effect those rules will have on the game. We also get a peak into Jared’s upcoming book.
Harry and Kendall also dig into some of the upcoming changes that MLB will be testing out in the Atlantic League.
Some of Jared’s recent articles:
- Expect to See More Two-Way Threats in Baseball
- In the Interest of Time, LOOGYs May Get Left Out
- The MLB Coach Who Played Only T-Ball
