Dan Szymborski gets paid to do cool baseball stuff, but didn’t get paid when he joined the RumBunter podcast. Despite not making a nickel, Syzmborski absolutely crushed it. Szymborski talks baseball in a unique and hilarious manner as he talks about creating ZiPS, the most reliable projection system in baseball. The Baltimore native has worked his tail off and he humbly discusses how it all started during the interview.
Despite his celebrity status Dan Szymborski is the best interview in a long list of podcast guests and despite being insanely smart doesn’t talk over anyones head when discussing his projection system.
The strong projections once again for Andrew McCutchen lead off the ZiPS specific discussion. How will Josh Harrison respond to his monster season is very interesting, but perhaps the most random discussion surrounds Jung-ho Kang and the KBO. As you probably know, the 2015 season looks exciting when digging into the Pittsburgh Pirates ZiPS projections. A lot of time is spent as Cocktails and Smitty discuss the projections showing more love for the Pirates pitching staff than it (correctly) predicted last season.
