Recording right after Games 5 in the LDS, one would think we would be all postseason all the time. You haven’t met Pottymouth. Prepare to be schooled on how being pro-Israel is not the same as standing up against anti-semitism, and we’re not sure all the baseball players in that video understand that. Also that our supporting the right of athletes to speak out on issues that matter to them in no way extends to our agreeing with them. We also dip back into how immigration policy is preventing families of Venezuelan baseball players from coming to the US to see them play. We come around to the “New England Parlor Game” of all the people declining interviews to head baseball ops for the Red Sox (Pottymouth plants a flag for Craig Breslow), and how Marlins ownership drove out Kim Ng, who was arguably the best thing to happen to that franchise in years. Why are baseball academies in the DR such targets for break-ins? And ah, yes, the postseason. Pottymouth was right about Kyle, Patti calls dibs on Alek while still throwing down for Nats North, and the Bryan Abreu kerfuffle gives is the bench clearing we didn’t know we needed. Patti wants to be the PitchCom librarian and is currently wondering where Austin Hedges’ “F*^& Yeah” track gets filed.
