“At Least They Have the Browns”

Cleveland fans mourn the loss of Francisco Lindor and Cookie Carrasco, as the Mets made the hottest of hot stove moves last week. Love is in the air, and not just for our Royals and Phillies boyfriends. We've got dreadlocks, bobbleheads, and an attempt to compare the Browns-Steelers game to the CPBL. Ep 169 1/12/2021

Damn, Bianca

The Red Sox hire Bianca Smith, the first Black woman coach in MLB, who could not be more impressive. We may have to come up with a new boyfriend category. San Diego is stacking aces, we’re picking Mets and Angels boyfriends, and Pottymouth is never gonna see that $10.

In Which Patti Breaks a Boyfriend Rule

In a purely mercenary move, Patti goes Mike Trout-ish with her Orioles boyfriend, whereas Pottymouth sticks to hair, vegetables and kryptonite. Plus Nationals boyfriends, good luck to Howie, and the still-missing Manny.

Games Seven, Attorneys General, and Hunters Renfroe/w?

Too little, too late, yet ultimately good decisions about the Negro Leagues and also Cleveland Baseball. We've got generous, hard-hitting, and dare we say it, "adorable" boyfriends from the Red Sox and Rockies. Please give all of your money to Reinas Baseball. Manny gets lost down under, and Omar continues to bring the heartbreak.

The State of the Minors: It’s Just a Flesh Wound

Owners of the 120 teams “invited” to remain or become affiliated with an MLB team are ticked. The teams that were cut are ticked. It’s bad all around, and Pottymouth wants a lawyer. We've got Tigers and Diamondbacks boyfriends, and Manny Down Under. Ep 165 12/15

Pottymouth Has Never Seen High School Musical

The return of our baseball boyfriend segment leads to the discovery of an unfortunate vacuum in Pottymouth’s pop culture experience. She’s never seen High School Musical, and it shows. “Hair guy” Cole Tucker, her choice for Pirates BF, is also Vanessa Hudgens choice for BF, and we are all in this together.

The Incredible Women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League

Patti and the Pottymouth welcome back illustrator, designer, writer, and baseball fan Anika Orrock, to talk about her book, “The Incredible Women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.” Anika shares stories of conversations with these Incredible Women, and fitting together her illustrations, comic strips, narrative, and players’ quotes into a cohesive whole, à la Criminal Minds. Ep 163 12/1/2020

Viva la Revolución

Theo Epstein moves on from the Cubs, leading us to consider a new role in MLB, “the People’s Commissioner,” which may or may not involve a revolution. Wrigley Field gets an historical designation that we can’t believe it didn’t already have. We’ve got happy minor league news for a change, and teams doing good work in the community.

Put Your Shoes On, There’s Glass Everywhere

We celebrate the long-overdue hire of Kim Ng, first woman GM in MLB. We continue the Tony LaRussa rant, roll our eyes at Jeff Luhnow, and cheer the MVP, Cy Young, RoY, and MoY award winners. Pronoun use makes us rethink our stupid boyfriend rules. It's opening day for Dominican baseball! 11/17/2020

Somebody Hire Danny Shih Right Now

Danny Shih spent months building community with English-speaking fans of the CPBL, running the league’s Twitter feed, creating hype videos and excellent game wraps. He joins Patti and the Pottymouth to relive the excitement of the Taiwan Series, and highlight what makes this league so special.

I’ll Take Lions for 1000, Alex

What a week! A couple of important wins, including NCiB going 2-0 in bets on the UniLions in the Taiwan Series. Pottymouth gives our pal, CPBL Social Media Guy Daniel Shih, dating advice and recaps the championship series. Patti steals a joke deftly combining the Electoral College and baseball. Also, Alex Cora, Mets, Tim Anderson, and yet another Justin Turner rant. Recorded 11/8/2020.

VOTE, and also, Why do the White Sox Hate Fun?

Are there really only three candidates qualified in the whole world of baseball for the (formerly) three open managerial positions? We rant a lot about Tony LaRussa, a little about AJ Hinch, and muse a bit about Alex Cora. Our pal, CPBL commentator Clive Hsu, joins us to talk Taiwan series and to join Patti's campaign to get Pottymouth a tattoo.

Wash your hands, wear your masks, and stay away from Justin Turner: A Rant

It’s the day after the end of the 2020 World Series and Patti and the Pottymouth are super tired, a little hungover, and very stressed. It’s a good time for a rant. Pottymouth is beside herself with Kevin Cash’s decision to pull Blake Snell while he was still dealing. We SAID it wasn’t a bubble. We SAID COVID would end the season. We hate being right.

“Man, Baseball is FUN”

We’d like Hunter Pence to buy us shots, please. The strong and steady of the Dodgers can be relied upon, but the chaos, surprises, and joy of the Rays is what is making the World Series fun. We’ve got unlikely heroes, dance teams, vocabulary lessons, and a bet won fair and square.

Nothing Better Than Games Seven

The World Series is here after two Games Seven and we take every opportunity to say Games Seven. We welcome friend of the show Holly Simonette to tell us about her death-defying visit to an NLCS game. No kidding, IN PERSON. We’ve got boyfriends current and future, we’ve got flow, we've got your "funny or dick move?" question, and we’ve got predictions.

Poetic Justice and Venezuelan Heartbreak

Mike Brosseau brings the poetic justice, Arozarena brings the moves, and just like that we are on the Rays train. Talk therapy and red wine help us analyze our feelings about Manny Machado, Cody Bellinger, and the heartbreak of the Omar Vizquel news. Plus bonus rants about the minors, and fans in the stands.

Cinderella, Magic, and Momentum

Patti and the Pottymouth welcome artist, writer, and baseball fan Anika Orrock to tell us about her vintage-style baseball illustrations, and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum art show and benefit. Tatis, Jr. and the Padres bring the magic, "Bottom Feeder" Marlins and frickin' Yankees bring the momentum, and CC Sabathia wins Pottymouth over with his eloquence.

How was Hunter Pence never an NCiB Boyfriend?

Hard to believe, but we got through the whole dang season. Patti and the Pottymouth give you their good, bad, and ugly of how it went, should it have gone? And what about all those new rules? This crazy Wildcard Week is just beginning so we try to lay it all out for you. We even make a few predictions with absolutely no conviction whatsoever.

Does Ian Anderson pitch standing on one leg?

Patti and the Pottymouth welcome Marla from the Mansplain Baseball Elsewhere podcast to talk Atlanta baseball. Playoffs are a week away so we get you prepped with the layout of the rounds, seeding, and quarantine rules. Please let Rippkin's daddy catch.

Dangerous Pants

Zack Wheeler proves what we’ve been saying all along. Pants are dangerous. Not as dangerous as ticking off Dodger fans. Mr. Smile is fined for smiling. Bobby Dalbec can't stop hitting homers, Willians Astudillo is back, and we'd like Trea Turner's mom to be our Baseball Mom boyfriend, please. Baseball is on the way in Cuba and Puerto Rico.

Waino and Yadi are the most pure thing in baseball

Patti and the Pottymouth talk all things Cardinals with guest Tara Wellman, co-host of the Chirps and Gateway to Baseball Heaven podcasts. We look at the lightning rod that is Yadier Molina, why Adam Wainwright will always be The Guy, and of course Kolten Wong is better than you thought he would be. Gutting the Minors is an MLB power grab and Tara tells us why.

Cal, Cardinals, and Comebacks

Patti and the Pottymouth talk all things Cardinals with guest Tara Wellman, from the aftermath of the COVID-19 shutdown, to the responsibility of national media to get the facts straight, baseball towns, and “The Cardinal Way.” We celebrate the 25th anniversary of Ironman Cal Ripken Jr.’s historic 2131st game. Patti’s boyfriends are back from being sent down to the alternate training sites, and they returned with a bang. Ep 151 9/8

Jason Heyward is *The* Baseball Boyfriend, and more Cubs talk

What can two die-hard Cubs fans, a third generation Red Sox fan, and a Cleveland girl agree on? Jason Heyward. In our full conversation with Cuppa Cubbie Blue co-hosts Andi Cruz Vanecek and Sara Sanchez, we talk growing up baseball, standing with your teammates, picks for Cubs "baseball boyfriends", and the 2016 World Series.

This is Bigger Than Baseball

Cuppa Cubbie Blue co-hosts Sara Sanchez and Andi Cruz Vanacek join Patti and the Pottymouth to talk all things Cubs, with a focus on this week’s racial justice actions and inactions, and strategies for moving forward when the team you love the most disappoints you in non-baseball ways.

Hips Don’t Lie: Slam Diego’s Dugout Dancers, Unwritten Rules, and Manscaping, with Hell’s Belles

Pour yourself a Crown and Coke and settle in for #TeamTatis’ take on unwritten rules, replacements for Rob Manfred, the economics of cardboard cutouts, and the curse of dubious ballpark advertising.

Welcome to Slam Diego

Our pals, Angela and Liddy, better known as “Hell's Belles,” join us to celebrate the joy that is the San Diego Padres -- grand slam records, Air Tatis, dugout dancers and more, a conversation quite possibly fueled by adult beverages. But not before we show some love to Joey Bart, some love/hate to Trevor Bauer, and some appreciation for Rio Ruiz's fabulous flow.

Can I talk about some more jerks?

Plesac, Clevenger, Cintrón, we’ve got ‘em all going on. Turns out breaking your team’s code of conduct, disparaging someone’s mother, defending said mother, and pouting all have consequences. The Cardinals are back after 19 days off, just in time for the Reds to have an active player test positive putting a few games on ice. We will enjoy any opportunity to set Trevor Bauer off on a righteous rant, however. (Oh, hey, the Orioles are still above .500)

Doolittle is our Patron Saint, Tatis, Jr. is our Poster Boy

We talk with Clive Hsu, English language broadcaster for the CPBL, about how a high school guidance counselor gets the baseball gig, the importance of singing at the stretch, Pottymouth’s Lion’s BF, the Baltimore Orioles, and why everyone should be watching the CPBL. The As show us their good, their bad, and their ugly. Can the Cardinals come back from their outbreak? And what's in the river water in Ohio that makes their pitchers so good? Ep 147, 8/11/2020

Never Apologize for the Pottymouth

The return of the Joe Kelly Fight Club puts Pottymouth in the excellent company of Dusty Baker. There’s actual good news to report this week with BabyTrout and a swath of young baseball boyfriends making their presence known. The league still hasn’t shut down despite COVID-19 outbreaks on both the Marlins and the Cardinals, and 18 postponed games so far. And Rob Manfred is not a quitter. Ep #146 8/4/2020

2.7 is the New 1

We snuck the baseball math right up top -- 60 games shortened season x 2.7 = 162 game regular season. But with the Marlins COVID-19 outbreak, will we get past the first week? Opening weekend is full of Black Lives Matter and “unity” symbols and ceremonies, many Player Alliance and individual player-led, but what matters is what comes next. Opening weekend highlights and weird-lights, and the Grooming Segment is back.
