New MLBN show promises sabermetric content


Recommended Posts

I was reading about this yesterday. It should be good, if they do it right and not dumb it down.

It's a tough job. How do you go about it. Do you just blithely throw around fWAR and OPS+ and BABIP with the assumption that your audience "gets it" or they wouldn't be tuning in? I don't think so, those type of stats are just not commonplace enough that they can assume most of the audience will have a clue what they are talking about.

But it will get awfully repetitive if you have to explain in detail what the stats are and, more importantly, why they are significant and what they tell you that other stats don't, every single episode.

It's not an easy balance.
