Five and Dive

Welcome to Five and Dive, a new, twice-weekly podcast from Baseball Prospectus. We’re named Five and Dive in honor of all the pitchers out there who can’t or won’t go beyond five innings. We respect their laziness or lack of ability. Each episode we will cover five topics of interest that come from either recent events, articles we’ve written, articles we’ve thought about writing but thought “too much research,” and whatever else is on our minds. Craig Goldstein, Editor-in-Chief of Baseball Prospectus, is your host, and he will be joined once each week by Emma Baccellieri of Sports Illustrated and Bradford William Davis of the New York Daily News.

3. Weights and Measures: We’ve already had more sequels to our robot ump discussion than the Terminator series
4. You’ve given me 17.7 Million reasons: Qualifying Offers have been made, and we discuss who might accept.
