The Baseball Show, S2.E9: Guest Mike Petriello of

A total joy to welcome Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) of this week to The Baseball Show! Mike is best known for his coverage of Statcast, which is the technology being employed that is revolutionizing the game of Baseball. How fast players run, the angle of a batter's swing, the velocity and spin rate on a ball slung by a pitcher, and so much more. Mike walks us through what exactly it all means, and how it is growing and being integrated into today's game. We got into some specific examples including the recent Milwaukee Brewers trade that netted Christian Yelich, and how he and newly signed Lorenzo Cain should be affected by the move to Miller Park. We also did a little comparison of the top Hitters and Pitchers still on the Free Agent market.
