We've got you covered on the little slips of paper with numbers on them deadline, International Signing Day, and boyfriends on the Twins and Cubs. We say, “The school districts are WAY better there,” “Hamilton. Look it up.” and “The thorn in the Padres’ big rose.”
We walk you through both International Signing Day and the deadline to push slips of paper with numbers on them across the table (also how arbitration works and who avoided it). The Carlos Correa crab game has come to a close and Patti is not even smug about being right. We share our boyfriend picks for both the Twins and the Cubs. Pottymouth chooses the happy energy of Jose Miranda while Patti goes all family ties with Nick Gordon on the Twins side. For the Cubs, Pottymouth leans into a theme with always-smiling Christopher Morel while Patti attempts to lock down right field with Seiya Suzuki.
Robinson Chirinos makes a splash in the Venezuelan league so Pottymouth wants him for the Red Sox, and the Dominican league finals are very full of boyfriends, qHAR, and pop culture references. Diamilette Quiles, the first woman to play in the Puerto Rican league, will become the first woman to coach, as she joins the staff of her former team Montañeses de Utuado. Congrats to friend of the pod and pride of DC Girls Baseball, Paloma Benach, as she makes Occidental College’s varsity squad as a freshman!
