Synagogue of Baseball
We agree with Fernando Tatis, Jr. when he says, “who doesn’t love Ha-Seong Kim?” Max Muncy flexes his dad power. Pottymouth’s weekly Kiké mention is really about the ceremonial first pitch of his model cousin Sofía Jirau. Last Friday’s Hammers vs Os game, with Max Fried vs. Dean Kremer, was the 5th time in MLB history with two Jewish starting pitchers. The High A Hillsboro Hops (with manager Ronnie Gajownik) vs. Vancouver Canadians (Ashley Stephenson position coach) series brought us women in uniform on both sides of the field. Our Police Blotter features a conversation of when is a flub really a flub as we discuss the suspension of Glen Kuiper, As broadcaster, for his on-air racial slur. We highlight the international asshattery of Trevor Bauer, and the multiple plunkings of Arozarena. Bryce Harper and Jose Altuve come back quickly, and Liam Hendriks shines in a rehab start. Justine Siegal piles on the impressive firsts by adding “first woman to coach in LMB.” Our pre-season predictions predictably stink.
We say, “It’s perfectly acceptable for Arozarena to do his pose at third WHEN HE HITS A TRIPLE,” “Dad to dad baton thing,” and “I bet *he* can rollerblade and not pull anything.” Get boosted, fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.
