Glass Ceilings and Outfield Walls

It's our first time declaring Guardians Boyfriends! Mets are also in the mix. It was the week of hiring women coaches, signing international prospects, and moving left field walls. We say travesty, Wordle, and flask.

The Donut Hole of Limbo

The lockout means Joey Cora can get a job but Adam Eaton cannot. Have tissues at the ready for stories of our Angels and Rockies boyfriends. We've got an I told you so about Genevieve Beacom. We say “spreadsheet envy, “the the angels angels,” and “Joey from Friends.”

Not A Drinking Game – But it Could Be

Anzoátegui is the new “adorable.” Pottymouth’s favorite word to say not only comes up in our international baseball segment, but sneaks its way in to this week’s boyfriend picks for the Tigers and the Cubs! We begin and end with some winter heartwarmers of Minor League owners and hockey fans changing lives for the better, and we break those warm hearts a little in between. We say “wire fraud,” “Yabba Dab Baddoo,” and “hippo needed a date.”

Pottymouth: Origin Story

It wasn’t a spider bite or gamma rays that gave Pottymouth her Red Sox fandom superpowers, it was her Dad. Hear Bob’s stories of Ted Williams, childhood trips to watch the home team from the bleachers, brushes with fame, and the nice Jewish boys playing for the church league.

Beer with Grammy Pat

Our Royals and Marlins boyfriends give us a chance to revisit thoughts on PEDs, make bold predictions, hope for A+s over assholes, and want to drink with grandmas. Pottymouth's dad shares a Ted Williams story. We say “outfit,” “King of Staten Island,” and “naked, horizontal agreement." Ep 219 12/28

Smokey Things and Santa Hats

Beer, babies in slings, and pop culture drive our Twins BF picks, while Pottymouth smartly sticks with a forever BF on the Nationals and Patti goes against type and all in on New Guy. There's crosstraining with cover-ups and COVID, and we say drag queens, 420, “that hair stays in town,” and use “Max Scherzer” as a verb.

Vulgarity, Desperation, and Shots

Fueled by local distilleries and breweries, Patti and the Pottymouth present their new boyfriend selections from the Rangers and the Pirates, propose a science project involving the rate at which Clint Frazier’s hair grows, and celebrate Minnie Miñoso. We say aguardiente, professional bull riding, and fluffy haired folk.

Our Boyfriends are Back, and Locked Out

Patti and the Pottymouth counter the lockout with a new round of baseball boyfriends, sharing their picks for the Orioles and Diamondbacks. Our favorite astrophysicist proves that MLB secretly used two completely different baseballs last season. We say “rankling”, “Dusty Baker lit it up”, and “I fact-checked my dad.”

No As*h&les at the Bar

That’s how we define a successful boyfriend season -- some we picked too soon, some didn’t live up to the hype, some left town, many were all we hoped for and more, but nobody broke our hearts. There are vocabulary words in two languages to prep you for both contract negotiations and winter ball. We say froo-froo shit, hat trick, and double-fisting hard seltzers.

Undisclosed Sums of Money

There are two Guardian teams in town, and no one is saying but one of them may be a fairly wealthy roller derby team. Yasiel Puig settled a civil suit to make sexual assault go away and wants back into MLB. MLB teams will now provide housing for minor league players. We say Political Opinions Above Replacement, tofurky, and Bob Dole.

Mischief Managed

Vote on the pants and hair. That’s how Award Season: Boyfriend Edition might play out. The GM Meeting was "business as usual" with a side order of Scott Boras speaking truth about tanking. We lean into the labor issues, enjoy an international cross-over episode, and say “shenanigans,” “Mountcastle was robbed,” and “eat the rich.”

We All Need a Buster Hug

We cry a little into our brunch beer over Buster Posey’s retirement. Our World Series wrap up includes Pottymouth’s dream job, Joc’s Mardis Gras moment, Freddie, Eddie, and Jorge, and a better way to honor 44 than just playing with numbers. We talk lock-outs, Hot Stove and winter ball. We say bobblehead color problem, shiny baseball jacket, and “idioma anglosajón”

Effectively Wild about Dusty

Pottymouth reminds us that the treasure that is Dusty Baker is not just about postseason success, but also vineyards and Jimi. Patti loves on those Hammers guys, despite her 1995 sportsgrudge flashbacks. Chopping the Chop is not going well, and neither is PETA's Arm Barn push. Thanks for the memories, Rem Dawg. We say Halle Berry, Kiss the Sky, and vegan hot dogs.

Seize the Moment to Chop the Chop

Patti and the Pottymouth break down the evils of the World Series teams and the pros come down to I love Dusty vs. I love those guys. In our efforts to show one team’s terrible is not quite as bad as the other team’s terrible, Pottymouth points out the small number of cheaters still left on the Houston team, and Patti suggests a 437 point plan to eliminate The Chop. We say appropriately tipsy, Texas Gay Rodeo Association, and “you’re dead to me.”

Your Cat Fur Won’t Help You Now

NCiB’s West Coast Correspondent and ace fantasy boyfriend baseball league manager Deborah guest hosts with Pottymouth while Patti hits the beach. We visit Kiké Korner, get to know Late Night LaMonte, check in on Moral Alignment dilemmas, and look ahead to Winter Ball. We say competitive ping pong, Honkball, cat fur, and United Wiffle Ball National Championship Tournament. Ep 209 10/19

Pearls are Always Appropriate

We’ve got Postseason Boyfriends, current and former, and Postseason Grooming featuring Joctober pearls and pitcher qHAR.

Baseball, Blink, and Butterbeans: Riley Adams Talks with NCiB

Nationals catcher Riley Adams hangs with Patti and the Pottymouth to talk growing up in San Diego, coming up in baseball, and walking up to the right song. We say yoga, yellow jeep, and extra big size candy, and try to meet Riley's parents.

How 'bout those Mompa Geese?

Patti and the Pottymouth propose a migratory bird name to replace the “Rays” if they split time between Tampreal and Mompa. We throw in for Pottymouth’s forever BF Juan Soto’s MVP bid. Her former forever BF Mookie Betts does right by Reds rookie TJ Friedl. We say “zoning board,” “bicep boys,” and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

#Fairball and Boyfriend Cred

The excellent #Fairball campaign shines a light on poverty wages for minor league players. NCiB BFs are finishing strong in the record books and the Clemente award nominations. We say kerfuffle, reading glasses, and Guatemala.

Drink Whiskey and Watch Juan Soto

It’s good to be a 10 year old baseball fan right now, if you are near Joey Votto, Yu Darvish, or Melanie Newman. We've got BFs chasing history, a pairing of fine whiskey and Soto Shuffles, Hunter stirring the pot, crosstraining with the Premier Hockey Federation, and donuts. We say “Old and in the gutter,” “maple bar with bacon,” “ratio of happy to sh**ty,” and “Happy Birthday” to Pottymouth’s dad.

Mullets, Chipotle, Thumbs, and Junk

We talk Javy and Francisco's thumbs, Andrew's qHAR, and Josiah's and Bryan's cleats. We've got a flood, a strike (not that kind), and deep disappointment. Maria Pepe is out there inspiring baseball-playing girls, and then there is Jose Ramirez's necklace. Ep 203.

Not Afraid To Fail

Our baseball boyfriends are trending up (see Salvy, Ian, and Will) and proving their cred (thank you, Franmil). Three weeks in, what's up with the pitcher's mound experiment in the Atlantic League? The COVID Report is back with a vengeance. We say colonies, condom clown, and first day of school.

Hey Miggy!

Miguel Cabrera is the 28th MLB player and first Venezuelan to reach 500 home runs. Patti’s pitcher pick Triston McKenzie is on a tear, plus extra credit for attention to qHar. We say Abigail Effect, Chipotle, boy bands, repechage, The Baseball Rule, and assumption of risk.

¡No Se Llora en el Béisbol! Una Entrevista con Francela Verdura

Note to our regular listeners - this special interview with the fabulous 14-year-old Costa Rican baseball/béisbol player Francela Verdura is in Spanish. If you understand Spanish - enjoy! If you don’t, we recommend giving it a listen to see what you can grasp. ¡Bienvenidos a nuestro primer episodio de No Crying in Baseball completamente en español! Pottymouth tuvo la fortuna de entrevistar a Francela Verdura, una pelotera jóven de Costa Rica quien vino recientemente al torneo de Baseball for All (Béisbol para todos) en Maryland.

It’s Not Even Kevin Costner’s Best Baseball Movie

Patti and the Pottymouth celebrate their 200th episode with a rant. Turns out we have some opinions and suggestions regarding the Field of Dreams game. We've got love for Tyler Gilbert, Joey Votto, and Chris Sale and his weird shirt. We say Pete Rose (more than once!), climate change, the Czech Republic, and for the 200th time, Goodnight, Pottymouth!

Got Our Ducks in a Row

Patti and the Pottymouth return from road trips visiting Ducks, of the Rubber and Wood variety, respectively, to bring you their Olympic Baseball breakdown, weekly Police Blotter heartbreak, and a call to action for Minor League Baseball.

Let's Go, New Guy!

The trade deadline gutted Cubs and Nationals, sent superstars to faraway places, upended qHAR, and gave the kids an opportunity to shine. We're all in for Kumar Rocker t-shirts and have a bone to pick with Steve Cohen. Congrats to the Blue Jays for finally making it home. We say "repechage," "hobbit," "bar mitzvah," and "bacon."

Pickled Biscuits, No Rocks

The Cleveland Baseball Team becomes the Guardians and we've got the footnotes to explain it. It's Women in Baseball Week and we are celebrating a hugely successful girls baseball tournament and an historic all-woman baseball broadcast team. We find baseball reasons to say Kimchee, the Vegas Strip, and Hobbit House.

We Are Family

In this Davey Martinez appreciation episode, Patti and special guest co-host Junior Pottymouth catch you up on the aftermath of the shooting outside Nats Park, share some highlights from All Star week, some lowlights in the baseball world of domestic violence, and say "TikTok," "NFT," and nice things about Manny Machado for the first time ever on the show.

Pitching Problems? Get Naked.

NCIB officially endorses Sonny Gray’s "get naked" solution to a rough pitching outing. The solution to everything else is ¡Más Kiké! Or vaccines. Coach Rachel Balkovec shrugging off of the Kelenic foul ball to the leg, and Jose Barrero shaking the qHAR lead our Futures Game takeaways. We fear for Rated R night at the Lake Elsinore Storm -- if they rule out language and nudity that leaves only violence. Be careful out there!
