Snow days are fun but they do not keep us from thinking about the boys of summer. It’s always tricky for us to pick our NYY bfs because of, well, general vitriol. But we persevere and end up disliking the team a little less. Pottymouth wants the team to give Oswaldo Cabrera a real shot, and Patti can’t help appreciating the deep fandom in Anthony Volpe’s family. For the Reds, Pottymouth goes for taller twin Elly de la Cruz, and Patti reads “DFA” and instead sees “Immaculate Grid” in Stuart Fairchild. Patron saint of the pod, Sean Doolittle, puts his big brain to work for the Nationals, and Dusty just can’t make retirement stick. The looking for a home As lead the Police Blotter with yet another complete dismissal of their fan base and find another team called the Bees to push around. The Cuban Professional Baseball Federation finds some exhibition games to play as politics bring an international tournament in Colombia to a stop, and winter ball heads to the finals. The Os open a state of the art academy in the Dominican Republic, calling it the most important accomplishment of the last several years. Hang on for the Hall of Fame reveal, and go, Ravens!
We say, “Pulaski cow,” “good news on the AC/DC front,” and, “Anybody who’s read Winne the Pooh knows you don’t f*&^ with the Bees.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.
