Ben Lindbergh and Meg Rowley joke about Vince Velasquez’s hip Pirates video, Cody Bellinger’s “mutant version” and just Francisco Rodriguez’s Hall of Fame ballot, then (10:09 p.m.) discuss Carlos Correa’s 13-year contract with Carlos Correa. The Giants and its implications for the future of the NL West, the Twins and Cubs and the production of older players, and thoughts on the state of the Dodgers’ rotation after signing Noah Syndergaard. After that (51:24), a FanGraphs writer Ben Clemens joins to get everyone interested in interest rates and explain why the CB and economic conditions have encouraged teams to sign so many free agents to extremely long deals this winter. They close (1:22:40) with a blast from 1942’s past.
