Episode 10: Fans All Day with Andrew Stoeten

In this episode, Derek and Nathan speak with Andrew Stoeten, Toronto Blue Jays (Major League Baseball) columnist at The Athletic and co-host of the Birds All Day podcast (and formerly of Drunk Jays Fans (DJF) and Blue Jays Nation).

Andrew explains how he got into baseball writing and then the three delve into the tensions of having personal investments in fandom while working in a profession connected to sport and examine the difficulties of having political inclinations when "Republicans buy sneakers too." In the latter half of the episode, they turn to a discussion of how advanced analytics and fantasy sports can have a dehumanizing impact on the way players are viewed and then consider the future of baseball in the pandemic.
