FanGraphs Audio returns just in time for the last weekend of the 2020 season. With a wild playoff schedule looming, the FanGraphs crew discusses topics including young arms that could help in a deep postseason run, the fate of Justin Verlander, and of course, the future of the podcast.
- Meg Rowley leads off with a message to our listeners. [1:22]
- Ben Clemens and Eric Longenhagen talk about reliever usage and take a long look at prospects around the league who could make an impact in the playoffs, with a focus on some exciting arms that could come out of the bullpen. [4:25]
- Finally, Dan Szymborski and Jay Jaffe discuss Verlander and his impressive career, his Hall of Fame outlook and place in history, and what projections can tell us about injuries and legacies. [35:52]
