In the first half of this episode, David Todd and I discuss the latest news on the Pirates, including Jeff Banister's departure to Texas and the Bucs' first base quagmire. In the second half (20:35), David Cameron of Fangraphs joins me to discuss what we can learn as baseball writers when a team's decision turns out differently than we expected. What can we learn from the Royals' run to the World Series? How much of what happens in baseball really is impossible to predict? And how often do good decisions lead to success?
