Bill Pecota

Bill Pecota was drafted by the Royals in the 10th round of the 1981 draft and played in 445 games for KC from 1986-1991. Primarily a utility infielder while with KC, “I-29” played all nine positions in the Big Leagues and finished up his career with the Mets and Braves. Pecota is perhaps made most famous thanks to Baseball Prospectus and the PECOTA player forecasting system it named after him. He recently joined Dave O to talk about the shock in being drafted, where the nickname “I-29” came from, the heartbreak in being traded from KC to New York, his thoughts on the PECOTA system and lots more!
