Effectively Wild Episode 1378: Five-Tool Podcast

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about Sean Doolittle’s delivery and Steve Pearce’s even/odd-year pattern, then discuss current record chases (involving Cody Bellinger, Christian Yelich, and the Orioles’ pitching staff), whether it’s possible to have exciting record chases based on Statcast stats, the significance of five-tool players (and scouting tools) in 2019, and more, plus a bit of one-sided banter about the Mets.

Audio intro: Dinosaur Jr., "Stick a Toe In"
Audio outro: Said The Whale, "Record Shop"
