Podcast: Michael Fisher, Codify

Guest: Michael Fisher, Codify

Lucas Giolito raves about it. Liam Hendriks considered it a must buy-in from teams pursuing him in free agency. Yasmani Grandal now uses it. One of the most talked-about tools players are using today is Codify. An analytics tool developed by Michael Fisher to help map pitcher’s plans going into their appearances. 

Michael joins the Sox Machine Podcast to share more about what he does and how Codify works with an ever-growing White Sox clientele base.

Interesting stuff. Good guest. Surprised to hear that the White Sox appear to be ahead of the curve on something like this for once. Then again, the org had nothing to do with that, it was individual players that took that initiative.

Good interview. Enjoyed hearing how Giolito discovered the high change may work. The hiring of Katz and a more proactive approach to using this type of info may end up being the biggest off season move.


One of Josh’s comments made me think of this great deck-building game: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/151022/baseball-highlights-2045

6-inning games featuring naturals, cyborgs, and robots.


What a great guest! His comment about what Hendricks was looking for in a team, and how the Sox and Katz fit that profile have me totally stoked for the new season.
