66 - Rickey Henderson & Tim Raines

Baseball Beyond Batting Average

Mark and Andy do another in-depth examination of two players, this time the similarly-skilled Rickey Henderson and Tim "Rock" Raines. While Mark takes on Rickey in all his glory, Andy handles the under-appreciated star Raines. Although the players' careers spanned the same time period and their skills mirrored each other, Rickey was in a league of his own. Find out where his value came from and how Rock measures up as a hitter, baserunner, and fielder. Finish it up by playing along in the latest round of Roll The Stat, in which Mark and Andy tackle a new stat, Championship Win Probability Added, for players who led a league in stolen bases during Henderson's and Raines' careers.

Chris Shearn and Jeff Nelson open the show talking about the Yankees' dominance over the Orioles, Gerrit Cole leading the Yanks to their second win in just four games so far and just how good he has been early on. They discuss how bad the Orioles are going to be this season, looking ahead to the series against the Red Sox and if there is reason to be concerned with Gary Sanchez and Brett Gardner's slow start. Nellie then tells another story involving poop from his playing days with "Nellie's Nugget." NY Post baseball insider Joel Sherman then debuts his "Sherman's Hot Corner" segment. Hall of Famer Tim Raines, a 1996 and 1998 World Series champion with the Yankees, then joins the show. Raines talks about being able to play for so long, his run with the Expos, always having a smile on his face, the chemistry on those Yankees championship teams and his thoughts on Brian Boehringer and the "serial killer" joke.

The Baseball Rabbi Podcast

Ted Simmons retired as the all time hit leader for catchers - and garnered 3.7% of the Hall of Fame vote in his first year of eligibility. Why did it take another 25 years for one of the greatest catchers ever to get in? Along the way we look at THE decade of dominant catchers (it's not the 1950s), as well as the travesty of Marvin Miller's Hall of Fame candidacy. And what is the curse of Tim Raines, and how is Drew Brees one of its prominent victims?
