First episode of new SABR/SiriusXM radio show to focus on baseball’s pace of play

Behind the Numbers: Baseball SABR Style on SiriusXM, a new radio show hosted by SABR President Vince Gennaro focused on examining and interpreting the statistical analysis that plays a critical role in baseball today, will make its debut at 7 p.m. ET this Sunday, February 15.

The show will air weekly throughout the year on MLB Network Radio, available to subscribers nationwide on XM channel 89, Sirius channel 209, and on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App. (The show will also be available afterward in the “on-demand” section of the app.)

This week’s inaugural show will explore the much-talked-about topic of the pace of play and length of games in baseball today. Why does baseball get criticized for games that are shorter than NFL games and college football games? How much of the issue is the rise in strikeouts and decline in “action” on the field? We’ll also get Gennaro’s take on the “big three” starting pitcher signings this offseason — Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, and James Shields — and hear about the lineup for the upcoming SABR Analytics Conference next month in Phoenix.
