Chatting About a Broken Game With Baseball Writer Pedro Moura
Play • 38 min

Pedro Moura is a national baseball writer for Fox Sports.  He previously covered the Los Angeles Dodgers for The Athletic.  His new book is titled "How to Beat a Broken Game: The Rise of the Dodgers in a League on the Brink."  During this podcast episode, we'll discuss how and why the game of baseball is broken, what factors caused it, and offer a few thoughts on how to "fix" a great game.  The focus will be on analytics; the good and bad.  Analytics have not only infiltrated the game of baseball, to a large degree they have taken over the sport.  Analytics have been good for baseball operations people in terms of providing evaluation and strategy development tools.  On the other hand, they've been bad for business operations people because they've lessened the fan experience and hurt the game as an entertainment product.  As an industry, baseball is challenged today to find ways to balance the positive impact of analytics as a strategic baseball tool with the negative impact they have had on fan enjoyment.
