Carey: Replacement Level Podcast with Rob Arthur

From SABR member Ross Carey at Replacement Level Podcast on February 2, 2017:

This episode of the Replacement Level Podcast features Rob Arthur. Rob is a writer and researcher whose work has appeared at FiveThirtyEight, Baseball Prospectus, Slate, and the Wall Street Journal.

Rob Joined me to discuss some of the statistical trends in baseball in 2016. He examined the recent increase in HR% in Major League Baseball and explained the likely cause behind it. He also spoke about his new defensive metric LARS and how it improves upon UZR. We also spoke about Bryce Harper’s decline in production last year and what he attributes that to.

I hope you listen to and enjoy the podcast. It can also be downloaded for free on iTunes.
