Effectively Wild Episode 1894: The Indomitable Dodgers

Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley banter about the approving responses to Ben’s blistering (by Ben’s standards) Yankee Stadium review, Christian Walker’s scale-breaking defense at first base, “defended” vs. “defensed,” the Dodgers’ historic run of regular-season success, and the battle between teammates Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt for NL MVP frontrunner status, followed by Stat Blasts (49:13) on the Yankees and slumping prospective playoff teams, teams whose players led their league in each type of hit, the biggest differentials in pitcher Game Score from one start to the next (against different teams and the same team), Lucas Giolito and the longest strings of starts with different numbers of earned runs allowed, and the most non-hit RBI to start a career, plus a Past Blast (1:11:56) from 1894.

Audio intro: Super Furry Animals, “Run! Christian, Run!
Audio outro: Atomic Rooster, “Never to Lose
