Effectively Wild Episode 1461: Hot Stove Stirrings

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about what the Padres’ 2017 Rule 5 trio is up to now, the Mariners’ aggressive Evan White extension, how teams would distribute their spending if every player (amateur or pro) were a free agent but spending were capped at a percentage of MLB revenue, the just-announced All-MLB Team, the White Sox signing Yasmani Grandal, whether the early action on the free-agent market has been at all surprising or encouraging, and the results of Sam’s surveys about a “Baseball Genie” who grants fans of each team’s wishes, with a catch.

Audio intro: The Jayhawks, "You Look So Young"
Audio outro: The Claypool Lennon Delirium, "Cricket and the Genie (Movement I, The Delirium)"
