In Episode 239, Jeffrey and Craig absolutely do not chat about Chris Pine and then discuss five mostly baseball topics.
1. Because We’re a Mets Podcast: But this is mostly a Braves segment as they have chased down the Mets in the East.
2. This is Boland: Bo Bichette crushes the Orioles for three straight games, and the AL East rivals (?) are getting testy.
3. Minor Threat: The MLBPA has gotten 50% +1 cards from the minor leagues and have asked for voluntary recognition. Oh, they also joined the AFL-CIO
4. Around the Horn: How many home runs will Judge hit, how many scoreless innings will Gallen throw, and how many minutes is this Joe Maddon rant from Craig?
5. What to Watch: More Yankees series of interest and a weird but important showdown between Atlanta and Seattle.
