BN Podcast Episode 24: How Good is Jeff Samardzija, and How Bad is Carlos Marmol?


bnpodcastimagesmallIt’s the 24th episode of a super awesome podcast featuring me and Sahadev Sharma. You can listen to the podcast there below, or download it for later listening. You can also subscribe via iTunes. Here’s your iTunes link, and you can also find it by searching in the iTunes store. For those of you who use other feed-catching services, here’s the podcast feed. For those of you just tuning in who want to catch up on prior episodes, here’s the whole lot.


As always, you can send questions, comments, etc. to the official podcast email address (podcast AT bleachernation DOT com) if you want your thoughts included on a future show. This episode turned into an email blowout, with a ton of great emails to discuss, prompting theoretically interesting discussions on an Anthony Rizzo extension, where Starlin Castro should be batting, when a gay ballplayer is coming, and how much it would cost to attend every Cubs game in a given season.

We’ve got Carlos Marmol shakiness to discuss, as well as Jeff Samardzija’s dominance. We also have a great deal of fun with small sample size numbers.

Oh: we read some constructive criticism from an iTunes review, and then proceed to live right into that criticism throughout the rest of the episode.
