This snack-sized episode comes at your from the bar at an airport observation deck. We boldly make HR Derby predictions from our hearts and our heads, knowing full well you’ll know the results before you even hear the show. We share tales of our favorite rookie of the year picks, Corbin and Gunnnar, and are happy to see Alek Manoah back to the bigs. Is there anything EDLC can’t do? The Red Sox bring back some Pottymouth boyfriends, and Joey brings back his home run swing. We review our pre-season predictions here at the All Star Break and we are in better shape than one would think. David Bednar gifts Kershaw some local beer for the opportunity for his All Star moment, and we appreciate the move. The NYYs lose yet another pitcher to a suspension for violating the league’s domestic violence policy. The Baseball for All Nationals happen this week in Kentucky, bigger and better every time.
