Don’t Hit Your Brother: It’s Pitcher Day

Patti and the Pottymouth select their 2021 pitching squads, profiling the Padres and Cleveland teams. We turn a drug bust into a labor issue. We put the Mad in March Madness, say scrunchie way too much, Pottymouth gets a tiny bit vulgar, and Patti sings Soft Cell.

We are those people that believe that Jesus Camargo-Corrales wouldn’t have more than 21 pounds methamphetamine and 1.2 pounds of oxycodone in his Cubs duffel bag if minor league players a living wage. Also helpful hints from Pottymouth about consent to search. An appellate court rules the MLB’s small print is way too small to matter.

Patti clearly cannot pronounce Red Sox Cornah, but Pottymouth sure can so we have a Franchy Cordero boyfriend ruling from the Commish, root for opening day pitcher E-Rod, and get to talk about LeBron James (new part owner!). We stress the Madness in March Madness as we cross-train over the disparities in facilities, meals, swag, even COVID testing, between men’s and women’s tourneys.

It’s pitcher week at NCiB, when we select our squads from which our fantasy team pitchers will be drawn.  Pottymouth embraces the newly pumped-up Padres. Welcome Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, and Joe Musgrove, joining Dinelson Lamet and Chris Paddack. Patti mashes up pitchers with the grooming segment by focusing on the ridiculously good looking (oh yeah, and talented) young Cleveland squad including Cal Quantrill, Aaron Civale, and Triston MacKenzie, plus that Cy Young guy Bieber.

Alexia Jorge, the youngest player on ‘19 US WNT, commits to play baseball for Saint Elizabeth University. Veteran broadcaster Beth Mowins is the first woman to call play-by-play for the Cubs. Justine Siegal helps the British Baseball Federation kick off a women’s league. In this week’s plug to get you to watch breakfast baseball, Pottymouth highlights @olisamir ‘s game alerts, a hot rookie, and an electric bike. No excuses for missing CPBL. The KBO institutes pace of play rules with financial consequences. Also, we say scrunchie way too much,  Pottymouth gets a tiny bit vulgar, and Patti sings Soft Cell.
