Join Pesach Wolicki and Scott Kahn as they apply advanced metrics to the Major Leagues, reevaluate historical assumptions, and discover new baseball trends and theories that will leave you questioning everything you assumed you knew about the National Pastime.

What are the greatest teams ever to play Major League Baseball? Pesach says that run differential - both per game and per season - provides part of the answer, but also explains why this alone is likely insufficient. He and Scott also look into whether it's easier to be bad than to be good, and how the answer affects the way we analyze prewar teams. And Scott rants about how the NBA has undermined the concept of rooting for a team, even though he still loves the Celtics. (It's allowed because he somewhat tenuously connects it to baseball.) Listen in, it's a fun episode.
