Is Jazz Saving Or Ruining Baseball + Weekly Awards (Starting 9 #011)

Tuesday morning means a new Starting 9 show catching you guys up the biggest stuff in MLB. Like Joe Maddon's Mohawk, the rise of Jazz Chisholm, the NL East party for 2nd place, raising awareness for the Miami Marlins and formally predicting Marcus Semien's run - amongst many other things.  

And leave the calculators at home. I think we talk advanced numbers today less than 1% of 1% of the time - which, ironically, is a pretty accurate equation. Nevertheless, point remains. We're not trying to impress or intimidate with the FanGraphs glossary. Although that's a good reminder to run back Saber-fuckin-Metrics. 

We're off to Omaha this week for the College World Series and Cooper Arrieta's 10u travel tournament. We'll definitely have some futures on the sportsbook for the former while a joke about the latter would trigger some kind of regulatory gaming examination. It's Jake's first time at the CWS and no better way to get introduced than traversing the concourse with Ben Mintz. Funnel cakes and sausages abound. It's going to be a good time. 

Follow our page so you don't miss the stuff. And obviously thanks for subscribing to the show.
