Drink Whiskey and Watch Juan Soto

It’s good to be a 10 year old baseball fan right now, if you are near Joey Votto, Yu Darvish, or Melanie Newman. We've got BFs chasing history, a pairing of fine whiskey and Soto Shuffles, Hunter stirring the pot, crosstraining with the Premier Hockey Federation, and donuts. We say “Old and in the gutter,” “maple bar with bacon,” “ratio of happy to sh**ty,” and “Happy Birthday” to Pottymouth’s dad.

Continental treasure Joey Votto, Yu Darvish, and Melanie Newman show us how to grow the game by focusing on the kids. It’s good to be a 10 year old baseball fan right now. Patti gifts Pottymouth a link to supercuts of the  Soto Shuffle, because it goes well with whiskey and she deserves it. Ryan Mountcastle, Marcus Semien, and Wander Franco chase some history. Hunter Renfroe’s sexy defense gets overshadowed by his assertions that MLB told the Red Sox to stop COVID testing, which the league denies, redundantly, and the team does not, particularly. MLB lags behind other professional sports leagues in vaccination rates, surprising really no one.

Our police blotter has a lot of Ozuna and just a little Bauer. Oracle Park workers are signing up for  picket duty in case conditions don’t improve at this Giants home stand. MLB’s Grit program  is seeking out the best girl  baseball players for participation in elite trainings and tournaments at the same time SABR’s Women in Baseball Conference is awarding the annual “Dorothy” to acclaimed sports journalist Claire Smith, the first woman MLB beat writer. We crosstrain with the sport formerly known as women’s hockey, now the Premier Hockey Federation -- no labels, no limits. 

We say “Old and in the gutter,” “maple bar with bacon,” “ratio of happy to shitty,” and “Happy Birthday” to Pottymouth’s dad.
