Effectively Wild Episode 1618: Robinson Canózolol

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about Representative Cedric Richmond’s retirement from the Congressional Baseball Game after a Ruthian two-way career, discuss Theo Epstein stepping down from the Cubs (and at least temporarily leaving baseball) and Robinson Canó getting suspended for the entire 2021 season after testing positive for steroid use, and share a Stat Blast about the first ever-LOOGY.

Audio intro: The Nerves, "Working Too Hard"
Audio outro: Chance The Rapper, "Same Drugs"
