With the start of the MLB season, we welcome Al Leiter to the AA Podcast. Al is a former MLB All Star and World Series winner who now works as an MLB Network analyst appearing on MLB Tonight throughout the baseball season.  His work in the booth started before his playing days were done calling LCS games for Fox and he's continued to do standout work as one of the best analysts in the field. Al Leiter talks to AA about that broadcast career and the early MLB season including... -How he uses sabermetrics in his analysis and providing balance to fans. -Yu Darvish coming so close to a perfect game and his experience pitching a no-hitter. -Whether or not the broadcasters' jinx is fact or fiction. -Why the Washington Nationals are the team to beat this season. -The San Francisco Giants flying under the radar once again. -Increased parity being good for the long term health of the game. -Early season MLB storylines. Those topics and much more as we cover the opening week of the 2013 MLB season. In case you've missed any of our podcasts, check out all of our interviews by subscribing to the AA Podcast on iTunes or our AA Podcast RSS Page.
