Effectively Wild Episode 1059: Is Your Bat Boned?


Ben Lindbergh and Jeff Sullivan banter about a mid-start adjustment by Clayton Kershaw and answer listener emails about what constitutes a “jam,” pitchers who’ve allowed the most first career hits, how to analyze player problems and improvements, team abbreviations, hitters who homer and bunt, left-handed infielders, whether bats could be causing the home-run surge, and more.

Audio intro: Rage Against the Machine, "Sleep Now in the Fire"
Audio outro: Soundgarden, "Bones of Birds"
