Three Percent Bonus: Ben Lindbergh

In this special bonus episode, Ben Lindbergh of The Ringer and Effectively Wild talks with Chad about his new book, The MVP Machine. They talk about the premise of the book—how player development is the new “Moneyball” and is being driven by players and technology—about the process of co-writing, feedback loops for writing, and the mysteries of publishing and its lack of empirical data gathering. Oh, and Willians Astudillo makes a last minute appearance. There’s even mention of an influential book on pitching that a pitching guru paid to get translated . . .

You can follow Ben on Twitter and you can purchase The MVP Machine from any and all retail outlets. (Also, Chad highly recommends listening to the Effectively Wild podcast.)

You can also follow Open Letter and Chad on Twitter and Instagram (OL, Chad) for book and baseball talk.

This week’s intro music is “Stats” by The Baseball Project, and the outro music is “Can You Deal?” by Bleached.
