Effectively Wild Episode 1081: The Not-Quite-Cold Call


Ben Lindbergh and Jeff Sullivan discuss the correct all-time leaderboard of non-qualified offensive seasons, Carlos Correa’s complaint about Roberto Osuna, and the state of the race between the Brewers and Cubs. Then they call former big leaguer Glenn Borgmann, who caught for the Twins and White Sox from 1972-1980, to ask about being behind the plate for the game with the most stolen bases by one team in the live-ball era, being involved in the big Bobby Grich brawl, playing with Bert Blyleven, Rod Carew, and Lyman Bostock, facing Nolan Ryan, handling his relegation to a backup role by a 20-year-old rookie, and more.
