Baseball Prospectus is looking for a Public Data Services Director. Read the description here.

In Episode 169, Jeffrey and Craig discuss five mostly baseball topics.

1. Oh Man, Diego: The Padres are fading fast and arguing in the dugout. What happened and where do they go from here?

2. Protocol Me Maybe: MLB has set their vaccination requirements for the playoffs, but what happens if there is an outbreak?

3. Minor Threat: Phillies and Mets minor leaguers protest their wage structure and have some backup from some major league names.

4. Around the Horn: We check in on the Wild Cards races, Shane Baz‘s debut, Chris Bassit’s return, and Juan Soto‘s hot second half.

5. What to Watch: Some big AL Wild Card matchups, and can the Cards keep rolling along?
