Effectively Wild Episode 1375: The “Is This Guy Good?” Game

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about inside-the-park homers versus over-the-fence homers, the gratifying rise of home-run robberies, and the unique career of Edwin Jackson (who’s about to have played for the most-ever MLB teams and with the most-ever MLB teammates), then discuss the convergence of starting pitching and relief pitching and play a game to guess whether randomly selected relievers are having good or bad seasons (plus some closing banter about bobblehead dolls).

Audio intro: Al Green, "Have You Been Making Out O.K."
Audio outro: Paul McCartney, "Nod Your Head"
