Start your week off right with another episode of your favorite podcast!

This week, host Evan Davis (BtBS, Today's Knuckleball) is joined by Jeff Long (former BtBS writer, Baseball Prospectus). The duo talks about the value of relievers and the types of analytics we use for pitchers before concluding with a brief discussion on the playoffs as they stand. Full disclosure: We did have the fortune to record this during the Blue Jays’ walk-off, playoff-advancing win. Rangers fans, feel free to blame Evan.

Also featured on this episode: another segment where we discuss FOX's new show PITCH! This week the newly-blue-checkmarked Nick Stellini (BtBS, Baseball Prospectus, Triple-D podcast) joins us to discuss a new metric Evan has developed, and the general happenings of the show thus far.
