BtBS Podcast 56: Watch Your Step

The guys discuss the difference between "luck," "variance," and "regression, and much 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 (14.2 MB for download). Here's a really thin outline of what we talk about:

*RIP Roy Halladay.
*Luck, regression and variance, and how Blake misspoke.
*Clay Bucholz - grease and performance.
*Shameless plugs!
*Weird stat of the day!
*What does FB-CH velocity separation tell us?
*What exactly is a cow run?
*Tony Cingrani's kind-of-impressive weekend start.
*Much, MUCH more.
