‚ÄčAll times are approximate

00:10: With an unofficial count of 20 consecutive "way"s, Sam Miller sets an Effectively Wild record for word repetition.

02:00: Melky Cabrera's suspension is the focus of this episode. Ben Lindbergh assesses the Giants' revised playoff chances here.

05:45: If Jim Breen's breaking the Royals-Brewers Zack Greinke trade wasn't as notable to you as it was to Ben, you can take a walk down memory lane here or listen to Kevin Goldstein and Jason Parks interview him about the experience on Episode 30 of Up and In. Of course, Baseball Prospectus covered the trade in detail—here's Christina Kahrl's writeup.
