Russell Carleton from Baseball Prospectus and author of The Shift... joined Andy and Jeff to discuss the emergence of the shift in MLB as well as the Indians season to this point.

The book goes way beyond the shift and details the intersection of analytics with the human element in baseball. They discussed Andrew Miller's role for the Indians these last few seasons and the importance of labels.

They discussed if baseball's development's were good for the fan experience as well as when the NL is going to adopt the DH rule.
