We've talked about the conspiracy and we've talked about the trial, but this week, on the anniversary of the last out of the 1919 World Series, Mike and Bill talk to SABR Director of Editorial Content and Black Sox expert Jacob Pomrenke (@buckweaver) about the Series itself, what plays were suspect, and how little we actually know about how exactly the dirty Sox accomplished their mission. Plus, happy birthday to Doc Crandall and Donie Bush!
