The Dodgers claim Yamamoto and Patti claims Dodgers pitching for FBBL, just that fast. Just when we thought Verdugo could not sink any lower, he goes after his former manager for holding him accountable for his actions, and forces us to agree, a little, with Papelbon. This week’s boyfriends represent LAA and NYM. Pottymouth selects LAA catcher Logan O’Hoppe, not just because it is fun to say his name, but it helps. Patti goes for SS Zach Neto, a little for the leg kick and a lot for his mom. Over at the Mets, it’s another Zack - this time “great teammate” Zack Short , while Patti chooses Brett Baty and his “big Texas Boy power.” The Cubs promote Megan Jones to VP of Baseball Strategy, their first woman VP in baseball ops. Wander Franco rakes in a bonus while under investigation, and the Rules committee, stacked with owners, pushes through some changes that no players voted for. It's a done deal, the Os stay at OPACY for another 30 years. Patti has a swaggy little Christmas while Pottymouth waves to Fenway and hangs with Dad.
