Talking beanballs and pennant races with the Famous Jonah Keri
Yesterday I had a very entertaining discussion with Grantland.com's Jonah Keri. We talked about throwing at batters and what the answer is to protecting hitters like Andrew McCutchen. Deciding the appropriate punishment for repeat offenders was more difficult, but I think Jonah came up with a good one. We then had a lengthy discussion about the pennant races focusing on the question, "Are the Cardinals really this good?" Spoiler Alert: No.
