Effectively Wild Episode 1891: So Long, Jon

Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley follow up on Tony La Russa’s suspicious pinch-runner call, banter about Joey Gallo on the Dodgers and Andrew Benintendi on the Yankees, the utility of booing, and the parochial concept of being unable to play in New York, the curious timing of the Rangers’ firing of long-tenured executive Jon Daniels, the Athletics’ curious release of Elvis Andrus, the Braves extending Michael Harris II and the domino theory of extensions, and Joey Votto’s season-ending injury, then answer listener emails about which ownership group they would most want to compel to open its books and an MLB vs. NPB/KBO All-Star Game, plus (1:06:38) a Past Blast from 1891 and a bonus question about recursive caps.
