Effectively Wild Episode 1464: The New Hot Stove Survey

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter anew about José Abreu’s perplexing RBI total, then predict and discuss the answers in the sequel to “the Crasnicks,” a survey of front-office executives on hot-button offseason questions conducted by ESPN’s Jesse Rogers. Along the way, they touch on the four-player Padres-Brewers trade involving Luis Urías and Trent Grisham, the Orioles placing Jonathan Villar on outright waivers, the definition of a “splash,” and more, plus post-discussion banter on the baseball as an object to hold in one’s hand and Ichiro Suzuki as a post-retirement two-way player, and a remembrance of the late Seymour Siwoff.
