Carey: Replacement Level Podcast with ESPN’s Dan Szymborski

From SABR member Ross Carey at Replacement Level Podcast on April 18, 2018:

This episode of the Replacement Level Podcast features Dan Szymborski. Dan is the creator of the ZIPS projection system and a regular contributor at FanGraphs and ESPN.

He joined me for some small sample size fun. He talked about what players off to a hot start have seen their projections increase and what struggling players have seen their initial predictions tumble. He also spoke about what teams are likely to exceed their preseason expectations and what teams may falter. Lots of good stuff on Ohtani, Trout, Harper, Kershaw, Sale, and Scherzer. You won’t believe what ZIPS projects Cody Bellinger’s career home run total to be either.
