Thank you for your patience. BPIB is back. After a spring delay, the Best Podcast in Baseball returns in time for the Cardinals' home opener and discusses just how much patience fans and the Cardinals should have -- not for a podcast, but for production, for performance. KMOX/1120 AM Kevin Wheeler joins St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold for a conversation about patience and advanced metrics. The patience allowed the rotation is different than the patience afforded the outfield offense. Past performance matters. Track record. But what about trends? So many fancy stats are thrown around as predictive when it comes to forthcoming production -- but what do they mean. Wheeler and Goold attempt to make exit velocity, launch angle, expected BA, expect SLG, and the alphabet soup of advanced metrics more accessible so that fans can adequately calibrate their patience. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design of St. Louis, is a production of StlToday.com, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Derrick Goold.
