We've got players rebuilding ballparks in Puerto Rico, getting engaged, and losing in arbitration. There's Orioles and Brewers boyfriends, stadium redevelopment plans in Baltimore and St. Petersburg, and Serie del Caribe excitement. We say “over-driven and under-beered,” “donut sliders,” and “she’s my spirit animal.”
Our Orioles boyfriends include Patti’s once and forever boyfriend and birthday boy Adley Rutschman, and Pottymouth’s selection of Ramon Urias, completing a boyfriend brother set. Pottymouth’s Brewers choice is a twofer as Garrett Mitchell is pretty great on his own but add in his wife Haley and he’s a sure thing. Patti goes for prospect Brice Turang and his large, remarkably athletic family. We celebrate Toronto pitcher José Berríos working to repair baseball parks in Puerto Rico through his foundation, along with Mets closer Edwin Diaz, and former boyfriends Francisco Lindor and Javier Baez. Discussion of Cole Tucker’s engagement to Vanessa Hudgens leads to online meditation and the absence of High School Musical in Pottymouth’s world. In our Business Beat, we talk advertising on jersey sleeves as well as new plans for redevelopment involving Orioles and Rays ballparks. Turns out Ronnie Gajownik checks off even more boxes in her role as manager of the High A Hillsboro Hops. The Serie del Caribe continues through this week – catch some games! Patti suggests that if you have time for one more podcast this week, you check out the interview with Grayson Rodriquez on the Baseball Bar-B-Cast.
