“Hi everybody, I’m Brian Kenny and welcome to Clubhouse Confidential. This will be a show for the thinking fan.”
Longtime ESPN SportsCenter host Kenny’s jump to MLB Network is yielding dividends for his new employer. He ably anchors the baseball-analytics show Clubhouse Confidential on weekdays at 5.30 p.m. EST.
Make no mistake though: Kenny dominates nearly all of the conversations, which would be unfortunate were he not so friendly with his guests, even those who are not firmly entrenched in the sabermetrics camp. Moreover, the host is knowledgeable about the topics being discussed.
Here he is putting pitcher Gio Gonzalez, now the property of the Nationals, into “The Shredder,” the program’s in-house projection formula.
