Effectively Wild Episode 1884: The Great Trade Deadline Download

After a busy deadline day, Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley react to all the trade activity, beginning with a high-level overview of the deadline, a recap of the Rockies’ inactivity (5:28), the Padres’ Juan Soto, Josh Hader, Brandon Drury, and Joe Musgrove moves (13:58) and the mad genius of A.J. Preller, the equally unprecedented nature of the Hader-Taylor Rogers swap (33:42), and the Nationals’ side of the Soto blockbuster (42:03). Then they pause to pay tribute to Vin Scully (53:37), whose death was announced during the recording. With heavier hearts, they return to the trade talk and discuss the Mariners and Luis Castillo (1:03:00), the completion of the Reds and A’s teardowns (1:15:43), the Yankees’ additions (1:20:50), the Astros’ upgrades (1:31:27), the Orioles’ decision to sell (1:36:01), the Twins’ activity in contast to the Guadians and White Sox (1:44:11), what the Cardinals did and didn’t do (1:47:51), the NL East’s moves (1:49:06), the Cubs keeping Willson Contreras and Ian Happ (1:52:56), and the Red Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, Giants, and other teams (1:57:55), plus a Past Blast from 1884 (2:06:45).
