Feudalism and Bad Faith

The Astros bring us “feudalism” as our vocabulary lesson, the LPBRC looks the other way with Roberto Alomar, and both the player’s union and officials from the City of Oakland call the commissioner’s office on operating in bad faith. And still our biggest rant involves cross-training with high school softball in North Carolina and, yes, suspect rules about hair. Ep 187 5/18

The Astros bring us “feudalism” as our vocabulary lesson, the LPBRC looks the other way with Roberto Alomar, and both the player’s union and officials from the City of Oakland call the commissioner’s office on operating in bad faith. And still our biggest rant involves cross-training with high school softball in North Carolina and, yes, questionable rules about hair. Albert Pujols finds a home with the Dodgers, Jarred Kelenic gets a curtain call, and Jose Abreu and Hunter Dozier collide. 

Our COVID report tries to explain the breakthrough cases among vaccinated Yankees, and what’s up with the Padres. In Taiwan, a disturbing upswing in infections cause the league to suspend CPBL games, at least temporarily. Women’s baseball kicks off this week in the UK. All this and Diamondback dances, Duck Dynasty, and liberal use of words like “honkin’” and “frickin.” Watch for our special episode with DC Girls Baseball to drop later this week.
