Rule Makers and Breakers - Season 2, Ep. 18

What would happen if a Minor League team hired two guys to pick the roster, lineup and strategies with real players using the most advanced statistics? FiveThirtyEight's Ben Lindbergh joins Statcast host Mike Petriello and national editor Matt Meyers to explain how he and Sam Miller tried to break the barrier between the Sonoma Stomper's front office and stat heads. Plus, the guys take a look at how the rebuilding Phillies are still a part of the conversation, especially Aaron Nola, and why Nolan Arenado is the best player in baseball right now.
