On this edition of New English D Audio I discuss how the Tigers should handle the bullpen and Jose Valverde, Nick Castellanos’ breakout at Triple A, and how we should value Jhonny Peralta given his big offensive season and somewhat controversial defense. The conversation features material regarding how one can invent a closer, the great season of Darin Downs, Nick Castellanos’ big season, and various statistics surround offensive value such as wRC+, wRAA, and wOBA in addition to WAR.
