Join us as we celebrate AS*HAT Day, discuss the food choices of ballplayers, and try to make “crepuscular” a baseball word. The Baltimore Orioles are an impressive public health model as they strive for 100% vaccination organization-wide, offer free COVID-19 testing at home games, and put their “take one for the team” vaccination PSA program into heavy rotation. Not to mention stopping the red-hot As winning streak at 13.

Our boyfriend highlights are super-Padres heavy with Fernando Tatis Jr.’s bat against Cy Young winners, Jake Cronenworth’s sexy defense, and the pitching, um, “flock.” Mookie Betts goes vegan and Jesus Aguilar dumps arugula for arepas. We revisit Nick “It sucks” Castellanos, and offer the possibility of chest hair above replacement. Patti’s despair over Ian Happ’s slump leads to Pottymouth’s story of her car being hit by a deer. Yes.

The CPBL brings back Megabee, and as predicted, Yasiel Puig ends up in Mexico with Patti’s first car. Josh Bell starts a book club and ups the boyfriend cred even more.
