THE BASEBALL THINGS

THE BAD

  • We cursed the Rays and they got swept by the Red Sox, but then the Sox turned went and got swept in a DH by the Tigers
  • Bo Bichette broke his hand
  • The horrific Nick Burdi 
  • Keuchel & Kimbrel still golfing or whatever

 

THE GOOD

  • VLAD JR. GOT THE CALL! - DEBUT IS FRIDAY
  • Freddie Freeman told Tyler Bauer to can it
  • Gio to MIL
  • Mets have the same record as the Yankees, which we all predicted
  • Christian Yelich continues to destroy baseballs, esp to the opposite field 
  • Halos update: Shohei is taking BP, Cody Allen lost his job, they’ve lost 9 of 11. This is fine. 

THE UGLY

  • Which team will win their division with the largest margin? 
  • The mammoths could be going extinct: only three mammoth jacks since our last podcast.

THE BASEBALL THINGS

  • Chris Davis is historically bad … 
  • ... And so is Trevor Rosenthal … he’s already worth -0.7 WAR this year. 
  • Tim Anderson gets plunked

THE GOOD

  • What the hell do the Rays think they’re doing?
  • ASTROS won 10 straight 
  • Ron Kulpa, that dusty adult toddler butthole, blew another call and wore a pitch right off his big dumb face 
  • Khris Davis gets extended 
  • This week in large adult sons: Dan Vogelbach is mashing
  • SO MANY DINGERS 

THE UGLY

  • MLB has a mammoth problem
