Episode 74: Jay Jaffe


This episode of the Replacement Level Podcast features Jay Jaffe. Jay Joined me to discuss his new book The Cooperstown Casebook: Who’s in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Who should be in, and who should pack their plaques.

We dive deep into the Hall’s history with stories about cronyism in the Veterans Committee, electing players posthumously,  the advanced metrics revolution, and the PED dilemma. Jay also profiled some players on the outside who deserve a plaque and gave his thoughts on how to get more modern players in the Hall.

I hope you listen to and enjoy the podcast. It can also be downloaded for free on Apple Podcasts.
