Effectively Wild Episode 1245: Moving Manny

Ben Lindbergh and Jeff Sullivan break down the five-for-one deal that sent Manny Machado to Los Angeles, discussing the players changing teams, the short- and long-term implications for the Dodgers and Orioles, and the ripple effects for the rest of the trade market. Then they reflect on the latest national discourse about marketing Mike Trout, review the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game, wrestle with how to handle the revelation of Josh Hader’s reprehensible tweets, and analyze the historic excellence of José Ramírez and Francisco Lindor.
