Effectively Wild Episode 1535: Leave Me Out, Coach

Ben Lindbergh, Sam Miller, and senior writer for The Athletic Andy McCullough banter about the people they would be (or have been) most nervous about interviewing and two new noteworthy articles, then discuss Andy’s and Rustin Dodd’s highly controversial ranking of the 30 greatest baseball songs of all time, the dispute about John Fogerty’s “Centerfield,” the best and worst baseball songs, what qualifies a song as a baseball song, why baseball music isn’t better, and more.

Audio intro: The Magnolia Electric Co., "31 Seasons in the Minor Leagues"
Audio outro: Matt the Electrician, "Baseball Song"

I don’t have an Athletic account, and haven’t seen the list, but what about Kenny Lofton by J Cole or My Oh My by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis?
