Locked On Dodgers: Will Banning the Shift Hurt Tyler Anderson? Plus Pat Hoberg’s Perfect Game & Nolan Arenado’s Opt-In

Click here to listen

A listener expressed concern that Dodgers pitcher Tyler Anderson might be adversely affecting by the banning of the shift in MLB next year, since Anderson doesn’t strike many guys out. Jeff reached out to Mark Simon of Sports Info Solutions for more data on that and found a different pitcher we might want to worry about. We also talked about Pat Hoberg’s perfect umpiring game in the World Series and how silly it is that we ever settle for less. And finally, we discuss the fleeting hope, now dashed to pieces, that Nolan Arenado might someday wear Dodger Blue.
