Successfully Wild Episode 1725: Jerry Constructed

Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley banter in regards to the Padres buying and selling for Adam Frazier and different pre-deadline exercise, Joey Votto’s offensive resurgence, Shohei Ohtani’s soiled uniform, and extra, then react in actual time to the Mariners surprisingly buying and selling Kendall Graveman to the Astros for Abraham Toro. Additionally they reply listener emails about including a pitcher/DH place, bringing again limitless two-strike foul bunts to fight the shift, buying and selling catchers on the deadline, the opportunity of pitchers, not catchers, calling pitches, and having fun with baseball by way of stats alone. After that, they do a “Meet a Main Leaguer” on two rookies not too long ago traded to the Pirates, Hoy Park and Tucupita Marcano, and share a Stat Blast on Merrill Kelly and the longest group streaks wherein the one wins had been in begins by one pitcher (plus postscripts on trades, “pulling the goalie,” cycles, and extra).
