Giants and White Sox boyfriends, new gigs for fantastic baseball women, and cross-training with NHL Pride Nights gone bad. We say “It’s a blowtorch, what could go wrong?” “ Now there’s jazz hands,” and "Good to find a man with flexibility.”
This week’s boyfriends represent the Chicago White Sox and the San Francisco Giants. Pottymouth focuses on Venezuelan players and Patti pays attention to CWS draft picks from 2017. Pottymouth selects White Sox 2B Lenyn Sosa, who also plays SS for the Leones de Caracas. Patti selects Jake Burger, not for the easy pun potential but because of his remarkable generosity in sharing his depression and anxiety experiences including strategies for managing them. For the Giants, Pottymouth goes with Thairo Estrada, a teaching moment about the importance of removing bullets from hips, and Patti picks outfielder Luis González, whose best stories are pitching-related. Mike Clevinger is the latest pitcher to be the subject of an investigation under MLB’s domestic abuse policy. New gigs for OAK’s Veronica Alvarez, PHI’s Sarah Edwards, and the Cardinal’s Christina Whitlock build momentum for women in baseball, but we really want to know why Bianca Smith and Katie Krall left BOS. We cross-train with the NHL where Pride nights keep going wrong around the edges in the name of “personal reasons.”
