Unlike many baseball podcasts, Baseball HQ is numbers- and analysis-driven, high on substance and low on style. The host doesn't try to win you over with his personality; he and the Baseball HQ staff are there not to laugh it up but to provide information you can use to win your drafts and leagues. (Isn't that the point?) Plus, it's a well-organized show with expert guests and useful features, including a regular advanced metrics primer. I particularly enjoyed the scouting report for the new Strat-o-Matic cards. And, I should add, it's not as though the host, who is very Canadian, never has any fun. Every once in a while, he will surprise you -- the "Chris Davis Blues" serving as the most recent example.
