Much ado about Manny Machado as he announces intent to opt out of his contract next year, has a cameo in Pottymouth’s bf conversation and a full on support role in Patti’s. Patti picked Ha-Seong Kim as her SD bf only partially to say nice things about Manny. Pottymouth goes all young, dynamic Dominican players this week by continuing with Juan Soto as her once and forever for SD, and selecting ROY Julio Rodriguez for SEA (which causes us to purchase tickets to a women’s soccer game because we cross-train). Patti seems to have a thing for switch-hitting catchers, evidenced by her selection of Cal Raleigh as her SEA bf. Most pitchers and catchers reported last week, with some notable exceptions, and arbitration concludes with teams winning over players 13-6. CWS minor leaguer Anderson Comas comes out via Instagram, in two languages. Mike Clevenger defends himself in Spring Training media interviews, to the extent he is allowed. Patti aces the pop quiz on WBC trivia, Waino and Yadi tease us with big competitive fun, and the Czech WBC team shows heart by sharing baseball skills with kids from local orphanages.
