The Jonah Keri Podcast #23: Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller

Jonah Keri effectively goes wild with Ben Lindbergh (writer for FiveThirtyEight and formerly Grantland) and Sam Miller (Editor-In-Chief of Baseball Prospectus) about their new bestselling book “The Only Rule Is It Has To Work: Our Wild Experiment Building a New Kind of Baseball Team,” including how two stats nerds were allowed to run the Sonoma Stompers; their collaborative process; working with a player-manager; how the book crosses over from sports book to management book; why devotion to data may have limited their authority; team chemistry; and language barriers. They also talk current MLB including the Phillies, Royals, Astros, and bullpens.
