We are joined by The Athletic’s Levi Weaver to discuss the energy at Globe Life Field during the World Series, the profoundly bizarre experience of hearing that Justin Turner tested positive for COVID and then went onto the field to celebrate anyway, and what his most lasting memories of covering baseball in 2020 will be (1:32). Then, we give the Dodgers credit for building, wire-to-wire, the best team in baseball, and send off the 2020 Rays—an impressively constructed team that was overmatched in the end (30:22). Finally, the news you’ve all been waiting for: Tony La Russa is the new manager of the Chicago White Sox. Will Jake fulfill his promise of “walking from [his] apartment to Guaranteed Rate Field if the White Sox hire Tony La Russa” (1:03:46)?
The White Sox Hired Tony La Russa, so Jake Is Walking to Chicago. Oh, and the Dodgers Won the World Series.
