Boyfriends are back as we make our OAK and WAS picks for the season! The first FA shortstop moves tick off two major metropolitan areas. We assign Goldilocks Balls as homework, and say “Rusty Snails are an acquired taste,” “I don’t understand money,” and “we have laser hops happening.”
The first FA shortstop moves tick off two major metropolitan areas. Pottymouth mourns Boston’s loss of the XMan to Xan Diego, and Patti shares the DMV’s piled-on feeling of Trea to Phils – another former Nat back to a rival NL East team. Josh Bell to the Guards just puts another jersey on Patti’s Christmas list. We kick off our off-season boyfriend profile picks with the As and the Nats. Pottymouth stocks up on catchers early with Oakland’s Shea Langeliers, and brings along his star athlete sister as a bonus. Patti selects Seth Brown, the man with both Dad Power and a backup plan. We go all “hey new guy!” with the Nats as Pottymouth chooses rising star and bobblehead to be C.J. Abrams, and Patti declares it to be “Get it to Joey” time with Joey Meneses. The balls in the hopper set an anti-tanking precedent as the 2023 draft order is determined at the Winter Meetings. Is it weird that 13 of the 15 players taken in the Rule 5 draft are pitchers? Congrats to TJ House on his engagement! And we assign you homework: read about the Goldilocks balls for next week.
