INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Big Time Stats Guys Ethan Cooperson (CBS) and Ed Sfida (FOX)

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated once a week on!

Today we step away from Giants baseball talk and focus on a behind-the- scenes aspect of sports broadcasting – Statistics.  Ed Sfida serves as the statistician for Joe Buck on FOX NFL games while Ethan Cooperson is Jim Nantz’s personal stats man on the NFL on CBS. 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.
