In episode 44 of the EVT podcast, we began with some banter about the San Diego Padres.
The conversation then moved to trade chips, as Yangervis Solarte and Clayton Richard have both been performing well and building up their respective trade value.
We finished up our discussion by talking about the Padres signing of fourth-round pick Sam Keating and when we can expect news on the rest of the drafted players.
For our main segment, we brought on my old friend Casey Boguslaw of RO Baseball to talk barrels and Barrel FIP. I have known Casey for nearly two years now and we have worked together on a variety of different baseball blogs, most recently RO Baseball.
Casey began by giving us a rundown on what it means for a ball to be barreled, and then got into how he came to create his Barrel FIP stat and how he calculates it.
We would like to thank Casey for taking the time to come on the show, and let us know if you have any questions for Casey on barrels and Barrel FIP or any comments on the show. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to check out our sponsor, OriginalGrain.com.
