Successfully Wild Episode 2015: Sweeping Assertion

Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley banter about whether or not Shohei Ohtani is throwing too many sweepers to opposite-handed hitters, the MLB debut of flamethrowing Ben Joyce, the intense stroll/strikeout stylings of George Kirby and Spencer Strider, the states of the Central divisions, the offense and protection of Ke’Bryan Hayes, the return of Jon Singleton, whether or not the pitch clock is chargeable for this season’s uptick in attendance, and the taken-for-granted greatness of Mookie Betts, reply listener emails about baseball’s model of a hockey goon, gamers singing in the course of the seventh-inning stretch, and whether or not it might make umpires extra correct to offer them a PitchCom system, plus a Previous Blast (1:18:33) from 2015.
