Pride Month: Because of Being Kissing

Get the rundown on MLB Pride events, donations, swag, and atonement. We want dancing with our spinny things, love a first homerun, give a huge WTF to Anthony Rizzo, and have a new favorite Judge (sorry, Aaron). We say "air fried kale" and "sticky substances" too close together. Ep 191.

It’s Pride month so we give you the rundown on MLB events including a first on the field, swag (rainbow jerseys with your pick of pronouns), atonement, and atonement still due. Anyone know if the Padres “spinny thing” has a name?  It stars in our fashion segment about team-specific MVP accessories, which could be improved by adding dancing. Our police blotter update on the dismissal of the demand to move the All Star Game back to Atlanta gives us our new favorite judge. Sorry, Aaron, but she rocks. Liam Hendriks and Davey Martinez weigh in on the need for an MLB-approved “universal substance” that pitchers can use to maintain grip on the baseball, for the safety of the batters. In our COVID update, non-vaxxer Anthony Rizzo gives us a WTF moment and Carson Kelly brings us back to the before times.

Pottymouth checks in on the old guys, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa earns some love. Patti reviews the young guys as Daz Cameron hits his first major league homer, Jo Adell knocks on the door, and Jarred gets a time-out. Quarantine rules wreck some Olympic dreams. Get your proposals in for the 3rd Annual Women in Baseball Conference, sponsored by IWBC and SABR. This year’s theme is “Breaking Barriers: Women in Baseball Around the World”

See us work “air fried kale” and “being kissing” into a conversation about baseball.
