The Jonah Keri Podcast, Episode 11 (Part 5)

17 December 2010

Wrapping up Baseball Hall of Fame Week on the Jonah Keri Podcast, we talk to Jay Jaffe of Baseball Prospectus, The Pinstriped Bible at YESNetwork.com, and Futility Infielder. As the creator of the JAWS system for evaluating candidates, Jay’s the perfect guest to wrap up Baseball Hall of Fame week.

(If you missed them, check out the rest of the Baseball Hall of Fame podcasts. Part 1: Tim Raines, Part 2: Dave Van Horne, Part 3: Bob Elliott, and Part 4: Bert Blyleven.)

The topics Jay Jaffe and I cover:
