Breaking Records is Fun

Milestones both personal and historic are in reach, and our baseball boyfriends are all over it. We ponder rooting for or against these achievements either as a spoiler or as a judge of moral character. We learn MLB can authenticate anything it wants, not just record-setting baseballs. We talk young Guardians and rebounding Czechs. We say “It makes me think of tea, but also gin,” “The cargo pants pockets of Mr. Pottymouth,” and “Teeny bit hoodwinked.” Also Patti refrains from making a single 700 Club joke.
As the regular season winds down, milestones both personal and historic are in reach, and our baseball boyfriends are all over it. We ponder rooting for or against these achievements either as a spoiler or as a judge of moral character, player overreach trying to get there, and just how many catcher-brother pairs actually exist in professional baseball. Patti found a law enforcement career to get behind, and it is the MLB Authentication Program. Who knew it was all due to Tony Gwynn? And that you can authenticate anything you want? 

Our Postseason Watch looks at the Guardians, the youngest team to ever make the playoffs and win their division. We highlight great baseball parents in podcasting and in team ownership. Pottymouth pencils in the specific days in March we need to be in Miami for the World Baseball Classic, and celebrates the Czech comeback and the rise and fall of the Spanish empire, and uses the opportunity to claim next year’s Red Sox boyfriend. We say “It makes me think of tea, but also gin,” “The cargo pants pockets of Mr. Pottymouth,” and “Teeny bit hoodwinked.” Also Patti refrains from making a single 700 Club joke. Also this story will make you cry in a good way.
