Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley banter about Clayton Kershaw’s again, balky backs usually, among the gamers traded on the deadline who made fast impacts of their debuts, and the maybe surprisingly small impacts that deadline strikes make on playoff and World Sequence odds. Then (15:09) they reply listener emails about deliberately scuttling a commerce for leverage in a future negotiation, what must occur to persuade them that the Rockies had been a well-run group, penalizing slow-paced pitchers by regularly reducing the mound, tips on how to design the right pitching hand, convincing MLB to chop ties with playing sponsors by paying gamers to throw video games, Gold Gloves for utility gamers, an moral conundrum involving Shohei Ohtani, and why we name them “triple-slash stats” when there are solely two slashes, plus a Previous Blast from 1885 (1:30:15) and followups.

Audio intro: The Smiths, “Stretch Out and Wait
Audio outro: Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello, “Twenty Fine Fingers
