Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

They tell stories about how they became two of the best in the business and what it takes to be a “Big Time Stats Guy.” Since they are both Philadelphia natives, Ed and Ethan both have opinions about former Phillies manager turned Giants manager Gabe Kapler.

We also have a special tribute to another stats legend, Chuck Gardner,  our good friend who passed away on Sunday.
