BtBS Podcast #53 - Decaffeinated

Talking Rosenthal, pitcher similarity, the declining value put on defense and more.

Now coming at you Tuesdays and Friday, Bryan Grosnick and Blake Murphy will aim to bring you the best in baseball with a saber-lean, working in a third man in the booth or special guest when we can. We're starting to find a flow and some regular features but we're hungry for comments and suggestions, so get at us!

Today's edition runs about 40min (14.5 MB for download). Here's a really thin outline of what we talk about:

*Trevor Rosenthal's usage and whether or not it's worrisome.
*Andrew Cashner in the rotation.
*Pitcher similarity scores.
*Shameless plugs!
*Weird stat of the day!
*Does Brendan Ryan losing his job signal a lessened focus on defense?
*New feature, "this podcast in baseball history."
*Why Blake should never give up caffeine again.
*Much, MUCH more.
