No Crying In Baseball

We workshop the LMB acronym to account for the Mexican League signing players of questionable character. We aren’t just yanking Verdugo’s chain, we are teaching you valuable vocabulary in multiple languages. We review your four options when you catch a home run ball during a game, starting with It Belongs To You. A little over a week in and our guys with slow starts are getting the bats in gear. We’ve got home runs bouncing off gloves and walls, we’ve got new nicknames (Turn and Burn O’Hearn!), and platelet infusions. Elly impresses off the field too, conducting his first press conference all in English. Wish wish Stephen Strasburg well on his retirement and as Nats fans we thank him for his service. Pottymouth turns our attention to Baseball United, the Dubai-based program that is attracting lots of attention and dollars from former MLB greats, and now Ronald Acuña Jr as well.  We remain suspicious. Shane and Spencer, just this Saturday, join the ranks of seriously injured pitchers and the MLBPA and MLB argue over the role of the pitch clock in all of this. Compton’s MLB Youth Academy hosts the BFA Women’s College Club Baseball Championships. Patti and Pottymouth got up early Saturday morning to make friends with Yankee fans for an important cause.  We participated in a live stream marathon “Pinstripes for a Cause” to help raise money for the World Parkinson Coalition. If you want to see us on coffee instead of craft beer, we start at 1:30 into the stream. Please consider adding your donation and add “Pinstripes for a Cause” or No Crying in Baseball to the notes.

We say, “That’s a Darwin test,” “One set of biceps was more productive than the other,” and “Is he pulling one of your six chains?” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at Please take a moment to subscribe to the show, and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to NCiB.

What is No Crying In Baseball?

When Patti and her potty-mouthed friend talk baseball, you'll know this is not a baseball podcast for lightweights. This is the real deal, from real fans. Because diamonds are a strong woman's best friend, and there's no crying in baseball.
