On this Thursday May 9 edition of BangTheBook Radio, host Adam Burke went with the show’s traditional format, beginning with a look Beyond the Box Score. He talked about Mets vs. Padres, Phillies vs. Cardinals, Blue Jays vs. Twins, Braves vs. Dodgers, and Nationals vs. Brewers. He also looked at some left/right platoon splits and also some really interesting totals results to this point in the season.
A weekly exit velocity update transitioned into this week’s Down the Lines segment to isolate and analyze major line moves on the games that were just played. Adam gave out an exclusive free pick for show listeners today that was not included in his daily article. Finally, Adam previewed five weekend series with thoughts on Braves vs. Diamondbacks, Mariners vs. Red Sox, Rangers vs. Astros, Indians vs. Athletics, and Brewers vs. Cubs.
