In our fantasy league, no one gets slapped
This week was a tipping point in “sticking to sports” as calls for sensible gun laws permeated media interviews, video boards, and social media. Patti and the Pottymouth field trip to the Frederick Nationals. We say “They shuffle on the bottom,” “That’s my Woo situation,” and “Really good with pickles!”
After a field trip to see the Fredericksburg Nationals, Patti and the Pottymouth recorded this snack-sized, but jam-packed, episode over pizza and beer and perilously close to corn hole. The good news is we did NOT get kicked out of the ballpark (officially or recreationally) for sharing any of our opinions which appeared to differ greatly from the majority of the fans in the park, if t-shirt sentiments are to be believed, nor for the expressly stated “no profanity” rule. The other good news is Stephen Strasburg looked great in his re-hab assignment,we got to meet Patti’s adopted minor leaguer, the FredNats won, and we found Adventure Brewing and Rosie’s Pizza Truck.
This week was a tipping point in “sticking to sports” as calls for sensible gun laws permeated media interviews, video boards, and social media. Gabe Kapler takes a stand by not standing but making sure we know why, Natasha Cloud calls for backup and Sean Doolittle responds, and the Yankees and Rays social media teams jump into the fray.
Pottymouth witnessed Juan Soto’s 200th double and shared quality time with the Nat’s Woo Guy. In other boyfriend news, Ildemara Vargas goes to Rochester, Bobby Witt becomes a doubles machine, George Springer makes a difference, and this piece about Adley Rutschman is a must-read of the week. Gerardo Parra retires – but not completely. Pottymouth profiles Verónica Hernández, of the Modesto Nuts, the first Latina GM in an affiliated team, and holds her example out as a possible career path for Patti. In our Police Blotter, MLB calls out ballparks at all levels for not providing the required adequate facilities for women traveling with teams, and gives them a deadline to show how they will make it right. Josh Donaldson is suspended for calling Tim Anderson “Jackie,” and Tommy Pham is out for three games for slapping Joc Pederson over old fantasy league beef.
We say “They shuffle on the bottom,” “That’s my Woo situation,” and “Really good with pickles!”
