World Baseball Classic and Spring Training at the same time? It is an embarrassment of riches leading to overwhelming choices and lack of sleep. Pottymouth’s boyfriends this week are 22 year old shortstops that are a little mysterious, and Patti chooses center fielders playing for their home teams and we both have to get past childhood grudges to do so. For the Yankees, Pottymouth picks Oswald Peraza who we probably saw in Rochester and just missed in Pulaski. Patti picks new Yankee Harrison Bader, who manages to keep up qHAR even after the flow gets the NYY treatment. For Atlanta, Pottymouth selects funny man Vaughn Grissom, while Patti goes with Vaughn’s pal and 2022 Rookie of the Year Michael Harris II.
The WBC brought the chaos with a five way tie in Pool A, and our Team Italy bfs Nicky and Vinny are moving on. Yu Chang is the Pool’s MVP and yet his team finished last. An electrician struck out Ohtani, Team USA sports bacon on its jerseys, and the Marlins front office makes it really onerous to buy WBC tickets if you live out of town.
