Is it drafty in here? Pottymouth 1) overviews the MLB draft process in which >1200 high school and college boys get a shot at their dreams, 2) plays the tiny violins for the Orioles yet again, and 3) explains why this is the week Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel will finally get signed.
Patti goes on a rant just this side of PG-13 about protective netting. Yet another child was sent to the hospital after being struck by a 90 mph line drive foul ball. Tragic, and easily preventable. Stop blaming victims and call your team, and the league, and demand foul pole to foul pole netting.
Odubel Herrera joins the Never Gonna Be a Boyfriend list with last week’s arrest for assault. MLB is investigating, fans are weighing in, and the Phillies will need to decide whether or not to eat the $24 million dollars remaining on his contract. Hello, Jay Bruce.
Patti apologizes to the Minnesota Twins early and often as she and the Pottymouth check in on their pre-season predictions. The long game is paying off with their division picks, but individual awards are, um, not in the ballpark. And the Twins are everywhere. We see you now, and are deeply sorry for not paying attention sooner.
Also: Vote 5x a day in the All Star Primary, and don’t miss the one day Starter Election. RIP Bill Buckner. Please stop beaning Tim Anderson.
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.
