The Athletic's Michael Beller and Emory Hunt bring stats and scouting together with a singular goal: winning fantasy football championships. Stats do a great job of telling us the what, but not always the why. Emory, founder of Football Gameplan and a former running back at the University of Louisiana, will provide us with the why and, more importantly, if we should believe in it.

Mark and Andy are joined by Adam Darowski of Baseball Reference to talk about some advanced hitting stats that were recently added to players' pages, rBat+ and rOBA, as well as many other baseball-related topics, including his Hall of Stats site. Learn how these new stats are calculated, how they came to be on the page, and where the all-time great…
 
Mark and Andy pare down their normal gargantuan episodes into one that can be digested in a shorter amount of time. The topics this time are "manager stats"--really an investigation into a team's actual performance vs. their record based on their total WAR--and game scores, the Bill James stat used to evaluate starting pitching performances. Both t…
 
Mark and Andy are joined on this episode by baseball stats guru Jim Passon. The hosts and their guest take turns highlighting some of the less-remembered stars of the 1960s. As over 50 years have passed since the primes of their careers, players like Floyd Robinson, Don Mincher, and Jim Maloney are not household names. They all had their moments of…
 
Mark and Andy are joined by Mark and Jeff from the Two Strike Noise podcast to create a foursome of podcasticness never seen before. The topic? The 1990 baseball season, a subject so nice they had to record it twice. While the National League portion of the season is discussed here, the AL happenings will be discussed on a subsequent episode of Two…
 
The 2020 calendar year and season can finally be properly wrapped up, as Mark and Andy are back for their fourth installment of the BBBA Awards. This time, along with giving their takes on the existing inferior awards (MVP, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young), your hosts attempt to rename those awards to give it a more BBBA flavor. And as always, they gi…
 
The year was 1987. Mark and Andy were 10 years old and baseballs were flying out of ballparks. Your hosts take a look back at that wondrous time in their youth and try to gain a better understanding of who really were the kings of the diamond that season. Each team gets discussed in some detail, as each host takes a league and looks at the standing…
 
Mark and Andy do another in-depth examination of two players, this time the similarly-skilled Rickey Henderson and Tim "Rock" Raines. While Mark takes on Rickey in all his glory, Andy handles the under-appreciated star Raines. Although the players' careers spanned the same time period and their skills mirrored each other, Rickey was in a league of …
 
Mark and Andy tackle a new kind of topic for the 65th installment of the podcast. This time, they're looking for stars from the 1970s who have been forgotten or overlooked. Although some of the players mentioned are not all-time greats, several others deserve serious Hall of Fame consideration. Just as the hosts did, hopefully you too will gain a n…
 
Mark and Andy resume their exploration of Statcast measurements by focusing on fielding. Although the data is not readily available for most of it, arm strength, distance covered, and pop time form the foundation for what will come when they look at fielding metrics. The lack of data allow Mark and Andy to discuss some other baseball topics, includ…
 
In the latest in their Second Look series, Mark and Andy dive into the careers of Wade Boggs and Tony Gwynn to try to better understand the two players who became synonymous with batting titles in the '80s and '90s. Both were hailed as excellent players during their time, so what can we learn? Advanced stats shed some light on just how excellent th…
 
Mark and Andy are back for another installment in their exploration of Statcast measurements. This time, they focus on the pitching side of things. We always hear about velocity and spin rate, but do we really understand what makes a pitcher effective? Your hosts attempt to sort through all the numbers and determine what it all means. What they fin…
 
Mark and Andy are joined by special guest Brad Balukjian, the author of the exceptional new book The Wax Pack. Mr. Balukjian gives some insight into how the book came about and what makes it so special. The hosts help him break down the players featured in the book, both personally and statistically. While Mr. Balukjian is able to show a side of th…
 
Mark and Andy are back to where it all started, introducing advanced stats one episode at a time. This time though, there's a little twist in that the "stats" are really just measurements, and instead of one, they talk about four or five different ones. The topic this time around is Statcast stats, and to start their investigation, your hosts are l…
 
The careers of Don Mattingly and Kirby Puckett, although divergent in many ways--big-market vs. small-market, first baseman vs. center fielder, Hall of Famer vs. Just Really Good--also overlap considerably. The single-franchise heroes essentially played during the same seasons and have remarkably similar statistical profiles. Each one was regarded …
 
The 2019 calendar year and season can finally be properly wrapped up, as Mark and Andy are back for their third installment of the BBBA Awards. Along with giving their takes on the existing inferior awards (MVP, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young), your hosts give their own recognition to players for accomplishments both good and bad. Among awards that r…

Mark and Andy are back to revamp the stats on the backs of baseball cards. Although they didn't completely do away with traditional stats, there are plenty of more advanced stats that deserve a place among the 14 or so columns shown on the cardboard for both hitters and pitchers. They didn't quite reach consensus yet, but started the conversation a…

Mark and Andy bring you the fifth out of six episodes in their Mount Rushmores series, in which they determine the faces for the teams of the National League West.

Mark and Andy are joined by the voice of Wax Ecstatic, Matt Sammon, to tackle the daunting task of coming up with a Mount Rushmore for every current American League East team. Matt lends his expertise as a former Rays employee and Blue Jays fan and general baseball guy and Mark and Andy lend their usual takes incorporating stats and stories. The ho…
 
The debates about who are the ultimate representatives for the Major League Baseball franchises is sure to be lively and bring up differences in opinions and criteria. Mark and Andy give their takes on who should be carved on the mountainside, taking into account many factors, including of course advanced metrics. This first episode in the series l…
 
The great Grant McAuley joins Mark and Andy to discuss the spotty history of Braves second basemen. Stories abound for this collection of names, but choosing the best players to man the position in history proved challenging. Most players--from Lemke to Giles to Hornsby--only played the position for a few seasons at most. Did Glenn Hubbard's 1984 F…
 
Todd Helton dominates the Rockies first basemen leaderboards like no other, and although there are only 75 players to have ever manned the position, there are plenty of interesting names, stats, and stories to go around.

Your hosts thought it would be hard to make an episode about only one position for one team. Then they did it. Now, they attempt to fill an entire episode about only two players--Andre Dawson and Steve Garvey. Not only did Mark and Andy do it, but they made their longest episode to date. Be prepared to know more about these two players than you eve…
 
If you're going to commit to doing an episode about every position for every team, that means you're going to have to do a Marlins leftfielders episode. You might be surprised by how many stars have played the position in the franchise's short history, however. While there are plenty of Chris Coghlans and Bryan Petersons, there's also Miggy, Ichiro…
 
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been around forever, and their long history affords Mark and Andy the opportunity to dig in deep to the history of their catchers. While a large chunk of time is devoted to more recent names like Jason Kendall, Manny Sanguillen, and Tony Pena, the Doggie Millers and Bill Salkelds get their due as well. Your hosts look at…
 
Mark and Andy attempt to rethink the Cy Young Award winners in the 1990s, but find that, because of a handful of dominant starters, most choices were easy. Even looking at the candidates through the lens of advance stats instead of just wins and ERA, there's a lot of Maddux, Clemens, Johnson, and Martinez. That doesn't stop the hosts from making a …
