Effectively Wild Episode 1623: Robot Slumps

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about how many negative WAR an average fan would be worth over a full MLB season, discuss an MLB fan survey, what they would want to ask fans, and how much MLB can actually improve baseball’s popularity, break down a baseball music video for “The Adults Are Talking” by The Strokes, and do a double Stat Blast about the longest spans covered by two overlapping MLB careers and whether batted balls that become doubles are different on the whole from batted balls that become triples.

Audio intro: The Strokes, "The Adults Are Talking"
Audio outro: Nada Surf, "Robot"
