EWFI
Ben Lindbergh and Jeff Sullivan banter about Willians Astudillo and discuss Nathan Eovaldi re-signing with the Red Sox, the Cardinals-Diamondbacks trade involving Paul Goldschmidt, Luke Weaver, and Carson Kelly, and the significance of good teams trading away great players. Then (36:03) they bring on free-agent outfielder and probable fastest man in baseball Terrance Gore to talk about when he first knew he was fast, his football career and non-track career, whether he actually likes running, improving his base-stealing technique, racing teammates, how he ever gets caught, the difficulty of bunting, getting his first big-league hit and home run, whether he can be an everyday big leaguer, how he’ll pick a team, staying healthy before he gets called up, the 2014 AL wild card game and 2018 NL wild card game, the excitement of stealing, and more.
