    The Ringer's Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann remember Yordano Ventura (01:32) and talk to Baseball Prospectus writers Jeff Long and Jonathan Judge about their new attempts to quantify how some pitchers use command (04:53) and 'tunneling' to achieve more success than their raw stuff would suggest (24:46). Lastly, Ben and Michael discuss how stats have changed the way we talk and write about baseball (50:49) and bring back BP's Meg Rowley for an abbreviated edition of "What Did Jerry Dipoto Do?” (56:07).
