#67 - Butts and Biceps
NCiB is killing it with the Winter League picks, but will Venezuelan political upheaval cancel the Caribbean Series?
A.J. Pollock signs before those other guys. The Tampa Bay Rays tell their shrinking fan base that their cash is not welcome at Tropicana Field. The Red Sox kick their White House visit further down the road. “Utility player” doesn’t mean what it used to mean, in the new world order of the shift, no ground balls, and a big fat bullpen. In a surprising turn of events, Pottymouth picks a nice guy, Daniel Robertson, and Patti goes for Cuban defector and “most jacked player in baseball” Yandy Diaz, as their Rays BFs. Your hosts almost flipped a coin to determine who picks Ozzie Albies (Pottymouth → Curaçao and Brazilian jumpsuits were the determining factor), and who names 2018 Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuña Jr. (Patti → Let the Kids Play!) her Braves BF. They are practically brothers so double dating is not out of the question. NCiB is killing it with the Winter League picks, but will Venezuelan political upheaval cancel the Caribbean Series?
