There’s Beer and People are Nice

Patti and the Pottymouth are excited to start a new segment today: Scorekeeping with Blake. MLB and the player’s union came to an agreement on salaries, service time, the draft, and how a shortened season may look this year. We break it down for you and play out potential repercussions for high school and college players, through the minors. The Commish reports on the Fantasy Baseball Boyfriend League, and how the color commentary on draft rosters (and beer) keeps her going while trying to enforce the Boyfriend Rules from Hell.

Patti and the Pottymouth are excited to start a new segment today: Scorekeeping with Blake. Dedicated scorekeeper Blake has been with us in Section 408 of Nats Park for two years, alerting us to immaculate innings, impending no-nos, and catching us up on what we missed on that last beer run. In this episode, Blake gives us some history on the art of keeping book, some context for why fans do it, and why the official scorekeeper wields a lot of power.  Next week we will have a lesson on the mechanics of scorekeeping, but in spite of Patt’s assertions that mechanical pencils are therefore the right way to go, apparently one can get by with just a pen. Before next week’s show, pull out that old scorebook or grab this vertical scorecard.
