Effectively Wild Episode 1966: Joe West, Young Man

Ben Lindbergh, Meg Rowley, and Effectively Wild listener/Patreon supporter Alana Crockett banter about Alana’s baseball background, pitcher representation in the MLB and MLBPA logos, and former umpire Joe West allegedly editing his own Wikipedia page, then (26:44) answer listener emails about a “cheap team tax” in trades, a pitching coach superpower, trading for the Rays’ front office, batters tossing the ball to themselves, a reboot of The Baseball Bunch, batters predicting pitch types, and called strikeouts on pitches straight down the middle, plus a Stat Blast (1:22:21) about Fernando Valenzuela and players with the best statistical cases to have their numbers retired, a Past Blast (1:47:21) from 1966, and a few follow-ups.
