Effectively Wild Episode 2133: (Eternal) Rest Day

Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley banter about the Phillies’ Zack Wheeler extension, the Giants’ Matt Chapman signing, and a Scott Boras quote about free agency, then (17:35) bring on Patreon supporter Jay Wade Edwards to answer listener emails (26:41) about see-through players (and see-through pants), how different baseball would be if instead of a lineup of batters facing a single pitcher it featured a lineup of pitchers facing a single batter, rooting for a minor league team, formal “rest” stints on the injured list, the value of pulled fly balls, and an Armando Galarraga redo, and then Stat Blast (1:16:50) about high-WAR baseball cemeteries.
