‚ÄčAll times are approximate

03:00: Sam Miller breaks out the stats: Bryce Harper has hit two balls past an outfielder and slugged .244 since the All-Star break.

05:10: Sam asks if anyone is talking about Stephen Strasburg serving out his innings limit in relief. In Effectively Wild: Episode 1, one of the topics was how good Justin Verlander would be in the bullpen. Listen to it here.

07:40: Ben Lindbergh breaks out the stats: the Chicago White Sox have hit 28 home runs in their last 13 games.

08:05: The Baseball Prospectus staff predicted a third-place finish for the White Sox this year.

10:05: Ben mentioned Jay Jaffe's article at SI.com about the Red Sox' season, in which Jay covered playing time lost to injuries in some detail. The White Sox were again near the very bottom of the list. Ben wrote about Chicago's knack for avoiding injuries at BP back in 2010.

13:30: Bradford Doolittle wrote about the divergent directions of the Chicago Cubs and White Sox on February 9. ($)
