Ep. 7 - The 3rd Man in the Booth

Guest: Scott Carson (@caRSoN_Stats) Long time Blue Jays TV statistician (SN, TSN, CBC) On episode 7 on the Canadian Baseball Network Podcast we talk to Scott Carson, statistician and the '3rd man in the booth' for the last 20 years of Blue Jays broadcasts. We review the Blue Jays season to date as well as the performance of some of their key offseason acquisitions. We also discuss the rise of advanced statistics in baseball as well as the erosion of the value placed on traditional statistics. Does ERA and batting average still have a place in baseball? What is the best stat for evaluation a hitter? Where is the best place for someone to start learning advanced stats? Scott discusses all of these questions with us on this episode of the Canadian Baseball Network Podcast.
