Effectively Wild Episode 1156: The Winners and Losers of MLB’s Next Five Years


In the last episode of 2017, Ben Lindbergh and guests Joe Sheehan and Rany Jazayerli analyze the Rockies’ Wade Davis signing and offseason attempt to build a super-bullpen, then reprise an old exercise by picking (and dissecting) the teams they think will win the World Series in the next five years and the teams they think won’t make the playoffs in the next four years, discussing the future of rebuilding, the vast divide between baseball’s best and worst teams, and much more along the way.

Audio intro: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, "Come and Be a Winner"

I liked the comment that the Brewers was comprised of mainly replacement level players.
