After a few weeks off, New English D Audio is back on a regular schedule. Today, we talk with Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, which is part of the SB Nation network. You can follow Chris on Twitter @ChrisCotillo. Chris and I talk about his role in some of the big offseason news, including breaking the Doug Fister trade. We also discuss Stephen Drew, the upcoming draft and deadline, and what he’s thinking about baseball’s first month.

On this edition of the podcast, I cover why you shouldn’t panic about the 2013 Tigers, why it’s time to see what Bruce Rondon can do, how Cabrera’s 2013 season is better than anything he’s ever done, our new reliever statistic SOEFA, and why RBI and Wins aren’t good statistics for measuring individual performance. The author wishes to point out that he misspoke near the 8:00 mark when he said Dirks is having one of the best offensive seasons in the league. He obviously meant defense. Dirks is good at defense.

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.

On the first ever edition of New English D Audio I talk with Cameron Bonk of The Guy Show and The Farm Club about the state of the Tigers, specifically their bullpen, and about the difference between being a fan of one or multiple sports. I also hit Cam with some lightening round questions, including which Tigers player he would most trust to date his sister. The author apologizes for the slight inconsistency in volume, as he has just recently learned to create audio files. He promises future editions will not have this issue.
