Effectively Wild Episode 1163: Engaged in Trade Talks


Ben Lindbergh and a newly engaged Jeff Sullivan banter about Jeff’s absence and return, Willson Contreras and Jon Lester, and the Astros’ and Giants’ ends of the Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen trades, respectively. Then they bring on FanGraphs writer Travis Sawchik to break down the Pirates’ past, present, and future, including their returns in the aforementioned trades, the ways in which baseball has caught up with the Pirates in the past few years, Pirates ownership continuing to cry poor, what Andrew McCutchen meant to Pittsburgh, and more.

Audio intro: TUNS, "Look Who’s Back in Town Again"
