PosCasts

Well, that could not be more delightful.

Two PosCasts this week — recorded one with Keith Law about his upcoming book (Tuesday!) called “Smart Baseball.” I (like Keith) often get asked if there’s a book out there (without a lot of heavy math) that just breaks down some of the advanced ways of thinking about the game.

And then, Michael Schur and I had our first ever guest, NPR pop culture correspondent Linda Holmes. It was delightful. We talked some Star Wars, some Backstreet Boys, some baseball and the adultness of sandwiches.

Would love for you hear them both — they are available as always on:
