Effectively Wild Episode 1502: Running Interference

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about walk-off balks, a Zack Greinke oral history, and how teams will use the new 26th roster spot, break down the responses to a Jayson Stark survey of baseball insiders about the winter and upcoming season, and answer listener emails about players’ outspoken criticisms of the Astros’ sign-stealing and Rob Manfred’s response, and which transgressions might merit vacating a team’s title, plus a Stat Blast about the ultra-rare walk-off catcher’s interference.

Audio intro: Clem Snide, "Don’t Be Afraid of Your Anger"
Audio outro: Neil Young, "Speakin’ Out"
