Analytics Have Ruined Baseball, Governor Rod Blagojevich Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 10-30-20)

Jon Zaghloul

On today’s show, I address the Rays’ decision to “trust” the analytics in the World Series, and explain why it actually benefits the game moving forward. I also catch up with Governor Rod Blagojevich, former governor of Illinois and host of the Lightning Rod Podcast (23:06)! We discuss the current COVID-19 pandemic, including his evaluation of Governor J.B. Pritzker’s job in handling the virus.

Later in the interview, Governor Blagojevich opens up about his political career, his time in prison, and how it has changed him today.
