Effectively Wild Episode 1836: To Me, You Are Perfect

Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley break down a watershed week in overturning traditions, discussing the Dodgers pulling Clayton Kershaw after seven perfect innings and provoking a “baseball is dying” debate, the Giants flouting the unwritten rules, Alyssa Nakken debuting as the Giants’ first-base coach (under vexing circumstances), the new-look Alex Cobb, Andrew Heaney, and Jesús Luzardo, a three-homer game by Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the callup of Padres pitcher Mackenzie Gore, Albert Pujols calling his shot (and getting caught stealing), and the confounding calculations of live play probabilities on Apple baseball broadcasts.
