64 - Statcast Fielding Measurements

Mark and Andy resume their exploration of Statcast measurements by focusing on fielding. Although the data is not readily available for most of it, arm strength, distance covered, and pop time form the foundation for what will come when they look at fielding metrics. The lack of data allow Mark and Andy to discuss some other baseball topics, including their thoughts about MLB's rule changes. The hosts do spend time looking at the pop time leaderboards, and finish the episode with a round of Roll The Stat in which they guess catchers' pop times.
