The hiatus is over. Episode 20 is an interesting discussion with Daren Willman, creator of BaseballSavant.com and MLBfarm.com, two incredible resources that do not get enough publicity. If you don't know what those sites are, go right now. Things you might not know existed do in fact on those sites, including cool things like custom pitch F/X searches, minor league spray charts, and visualization of data you can't find anywhere else. You can follow Daren on Twitter here.
Daren and I discuss how he's managed to put all this data together, and what kind of conversations he's had with MLB front offices about his work. We also go into how teams use advanced data like his, what's coming next in analytics, and what his Houston Astros are doing with their new(ish) front office.
I promise the long break is over. Thanks to all of you who listen to these.
