Your vaccinated co-hosts record in the same room for the first time in over a year! Thank you, science. COVID outbreaks hit the Twins and maybe the Astros, and we can’t help but feel a little told-you-so about Andrelton Simmons. Jake Cronenworth, David Price, and Joe Musgrove are all in the same sentence but not how you’d expect. Joey Votto executes a triple play but we think he could have done better. Andrés Giménez scores 4 runs, 5 hits, and one fight with Adam Eaton who is no longer on Patti’s list of favorite Adams. Willians Astudillo and Shane Bieber get equal time for pitching achievement. Jay Bruce retires after 14 years and deserves a better end.

Will Yasiel Puig end up in Mexico like Patti’s first car? Pottymouth lays out the case for trusting women in this instance of he said/she said. Yankees fans make the police blotter, as does Joe West -- but he’s the winner in this story. Tim Locastro is caught stealing for the first time in his career. We have tales of babies named for superstars (instead of equipment companies), and daddy’s best pitch.

Our grooming segment reviews the Boston Strong Red Sox uniforms, and suggests that Carlos Rodon’s unbuttoned jersey may have contributed to his no-no. Pottymouth proposes “Hair Above Replacement” as a new NCiB stat that needs to be quantified. Extra points for Jazz Chisolm color? Jonathan India’s flow? Great hair in combination with going 4-4 in a game, ala Freddy Galvis? Does philanthropy give the Disney Prince an edge? Pottymouth glows over her CPBL faves, Teddy, Tim, and Brock. Eric Thames explains NPB in a way that makes perfect sense, yet no sense at all.
