Effectively Wild Episode 1410: Ballpark Figures

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about the Gerrit Cole strikeout fun fact, listed heights and weights and Ketel Marte, running the bases clockwise, and a Ramon Laureano postgame comment, then answer listener emails about come-from-behind (and comeback) victories, whether the 2015 season was good or bad for Bryce Harper (and how players’ success is perceived), and whether umpiring crews should expand to include replacement umps, plus Stat Blasts about the benefit of running on 3-2 counts and the record for most MLB ballparks played in.

Audio intro: The Bevis Frond, "Enjoy"
Audio outro: Willie Nelson, "I’d Trade All of My Tomorrows (For Just One Yesterday)"
