Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
If you’re all about the numbers, then it sounds like “Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast” is your jam. Ben Lindbergh of The Ringer and Meg Rowley of FanGraphs are breaking down every single stat with special guests three times a week on this intelligent and entertaining podcast.
In 1997, a power outage in Baltimore caused an Orioles and Seattle Mariners playoff game to be postponed. All in all, it really wasn’t very noteworthy, but somehow, a spicy rumor erupted from the darkness – a rumor that it was actually the team’s star who caused the outage. Bluewire’s “The Rumor” is a true-crime style investigative podcast about a rumor that somehow ensnares both Cal Ripken Jr. and Kevin Costner. What’s the truth? Does it matter? It’s goofy, a bit sad, extra nostalgic, and perfect for baseball fans who all but forgot about that 1997 night.
