Customer Reviews

Best baseball pod

The best baseball podcast and also, amazingly, a daily one. Hosts are both incredibly knowledgable while also having a sense of humour, and they always find interesting topics to explore about the game, despite the large number of episodes. Top notch.

Fun and off the wall

I have listened to it for a year and Ben and Sam have improved during that time. They know baseball and sabermetrics and some of their conversation sail right over my head( They spent 15 minutes recently talking about FIP without giving a quick rundown on how the stat works and its significance).

If you are expecting a recap of last night's play or opinions on the latest baseball issue. you will be disappointed. Over the last 3 months it seems that Sam and Ben enjoy more talking about hypothetical situations or the effects that drastically changed rules could have on the game.
I hope as the pennant races heat up that they get back to talking about baseball as we know it.

Informative and timely baseball podcast - a must listen!

The baseball strike in the early 90's ruined my interest in baseball for a long time. I finally renewed my interest in the game last year (2012) and I searched the web for information sources to get me up to speed and keep me in the loop on Baseball-related news and data. A friend introduced me to the content at Baseball Prospectus and I have not been disappointed.

I have vetted several baseball sources over the last year (I'm a demanding reader with limited free time and a short attention span for fluff) and the one source that remains at the top of my "must read" list on a regular basis is Baseball Prospectus.

The Effectively Wild podcast provides a daily fix for my baseball cravings and it is both informative and timely. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone that is looking to keep on top of current happenings in MLB.
