In episode 42 of At the Letters, Ben Nicholson-Smith and Arden Zwelling discuss the human element of baseball contracts with Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and chat with Toronto Blue Jays reliever Drew Storen.
Here’s how episode 42 unfolds:
- After hearing Arden's thoughts on Jose Bautista, Rosenthal wrote a column about the value of the human element in decision making. Ben and Arden speak to Rosenthal about the reaction to the column and the challenge of balancing the emotional and analytical sides of the game (here's the related article by Dave Cameron of FanGraphs).
- Drew Storen joins the show to discuss his experiences in Washington and why he's looking forward to life with the Blue Jays.
Expect more At the Letters episodes once Spring Training begins.
