Interview with Jay Jaffe of Baseball Prospectus

First of all, welcome to Baseball Prospectus readers who have come here in search of our interview with Jay Jaffe. WHRB is the Harvard University student radio station, and so our main focus here is on Harvard sports, but we're making a push to interview national figures in the wider world of sports, so we invite you to check back occasionally as we will hopefully have something new and interesting. One of our projects is investigating how one might take a sabermetric approach to hockey, so hopefully we'll soon have something to say about that.

Enough self-promotion, here's the deal with our interview with Jay Jaffe, which you can find in the panel to your right. I've split it into six parts to make it a bit more manageable; I hope you'll enjoy and not think me too much of an idiot, even if I really, really seem to think the workhorse pitcher who won 254 games and pitched a ten-inning shutout in the 1991 World Series was called Jim Morris.

While you're here, you might be interested in some of the other interviews we've done, including those with Pat Forde of and Dak of Fire Joe Morgan. Readers with a fondness for the minor league baseball culture might want to check out our interview with John Wolff, a former hockey broadcaster at WHRB who wrote a book on his year playing in the minors.

Thanks again for stopping by, and feel free to email us at if you have any feedback for us.
