Your Effin’ Guy Has Earned My Effin’ Admiration
Playoff ponderings include the rise of the underdogs, just how many non-baseball things you can do during an 18-inning game and still see most of it, and the lefty vegan pitching for the Hammers. There are hot MVP takes, a slimier than usual Police Blotter, and a Junior Pottymouth. We say “Bernie Bro on the Big Stage,” “Oh God I agree with A-Rod,” and “That Jazz Pizazz.”
Junior Pottymouth and his hours-old Mariners cap sit in while Patti splits for the beach. Playoff ponderings include the rise of the underdogs, just how many non-baseball things you can do during an 18-inning game and still see most of it, and the lefty vegan pitching for the Hammers. Manny Machado not only being That Shirtless Guy but also learning phrases in Korean to encourage teammate Ha-seong Kim have almost won Pottymouth over. Wil Myers and his wife are already our people, buying celebratory shots in bars for fans all over town. Seattle, where a roof is a reasonable choice, chose to play with it open on Saturday, when Seattle’s air quality index was one of the worst in the world. On the other hand, Mariners provided a mirror to the statue of late play by play announcer Dave Niehaus so he could watch the playoff game happening behind his back.
Junior Pottymouth questions the MVP take that Aaron Judge was under more pressure than Ohtani this season so that should factor in to voting. Pottymouth thinks that is just fruit salad. The Police Blotter is slimier than usual with what we learn around the sentencing of Eric Kay in the death of Tyler Skaggs. Pottymouth wants to work in a moderately priced side trip to see the Arizona leg of the World Baseball Classic – at least those tickets are already on sale. Jazz will represent Great Britain, and Ken Griffey, Jr. is the hitting coach for Team USA. Winter Ball is getting started – find your streaming service!
