Call to the Bullpen MLB Podcast: In Praise of the Second Wild Card

If it weren’t for the second Wild Card spot, the National League playoff race would essentially be in the books and the AL races would not be nearly as interesting.

This week, Corey and I take you through every contending team and go through their chances of making it to the postseason. Plus the addition of two new contenders, the Phillies and Brewers.

Also on this episode:

  • More Kris Medlen super stats
  • Who Wild Card contenders should go with in their one-game playoff
  • How much Adam Laroche is worth
  • What’s wrong with Adrian Gonzalez?
  • Is Derek Jeter an MVP candidate?
  • Is Jimmy Rollins a Hall-of-Famer?
  • What makes a Hall-of-Fame player
