    Illegal, Therefore Against the Law

    Illegal, Therefore Against the Law

    In which we pin down math around catching foul balls, our medical thoughts of pregnancy vs belly button rings (congrats to Cole Tucker and Vanessa Hudgens BTW), and our astute observation that betting with an illegal bookie is illegal whether it’s on baseball or not. It’s in the name. Elly continues to exceed expectations, Vaughn does not but maybe if he eats a sandwich things will kick in. Alan Rickman and Adley Rutchsman combine for Patti’s favorite homerun call. We learn that it doesn’t matter if it’s just rosin and sweat, it just can’t be on the glove. Sorry, Ronel. Jenny Cavnar and Julia Morales make broadcasting history. Valerie Perez goes full Bananaball. David Rubenstein sure looks like a man of the people and while that’s fun to watch we are holding out for definitive proof.
    We say “you’ve just taken this the way of belly button rings,” It’s gotta stack up to Grease and Footloose,’ and “Shoulda just taken a plane to Vegas.” 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.

    Very Fact-Adjacent

    Very Fact-Adjacent

    Welcome to West Coast Corresponded Deborah, filling in for Patti who is off celebrating our intern’s graduation. Deborah’s bfs are making up for lack of bats with all the steals. Elly continues to climb the all time steal boards, and Zack Short becomes Zack Short Stay. Willson Contreras’ injury leads to some choices about how to avoid catcher interference dangers – robo umps? Catcher’s box? How ‘bout that other Contreras, leading the Brewers? Paul Skenes debuts to comparisons to Stras, including Cutch batting lead off for both. We have to talk about an interpreter but we’d rather tell animal stories. Stay tuned for snakes, weirdly fast turtles, and a chill pelican. Hey! Make your travel plans to see the Ballers! Deborah brings some Bay Area cross-training balance to the all Boston all the time situation.
    We say, “general skullduggery,” “I’m glad these girls have something to scream for,” and “a butterfly flapped its wings in Argentina, y’know?” 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.

    Catastrophic Seam Failure

    Catastrophic Seam Failure

    It’s the Cinco de Mayo episode where the limes are organic and the salt is Kosher. Pottymouth’s Vaughn Grissom watch is rewarded, Luis lights it up, and Maysin makes her roster. For Patti, John Means business and Jack Suwinski can sure time a hit. Josés are in trouble and just when you think he can’t achieve any more firsts, Judge gets ejected. Did you see that Luis Arráez trade coming? We sure did not. The Police  Blotter teaches us the difference between Community Labor and Community Service, and maybe the MLBPA should have enlisted the moms sooner to get the unis fixed. We share a minor league beer tip, and mull the potential consequences of sticking with a rally sausage.  So much crosstraining for our Boston host.
    We say, “It;s a hard tossup between Short and Booser,” “Sit on the Wee Green Monster, “ and ”There are two kinds of people in the world – the ones who want to know that the baseball players are going commando, and  those who do not.” 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.

    Defense is Sexy: The Cocktail

    Defense is Sexy: The Cocktail

    As we lament the boyfriends we did not select for our fantasy teams, we observe Passover with mezcal. Should we have gone with Logan O’Hoppe and Joey Ortiz? Solid maybe. Mike Tauchman and the oppo Tauchos? Unrelated to the Mexico series tacos, of course. Patti’s guys Zach, Will, and Evan are crushing the multi-hit games, and Pottymouth favorite Elly is on track for a ridiculous number of stolen bases (Pottymouth’s math is SOLID.) LAD pitching is not just crazy good, it is death-defying. Josh Naylor gives us an “always gonna be a boyfriend” moment. Our Police Blotter features a few takes on the rules don’t apply to me viewpoint, as both the “victim” and the enforcer. Houston and Colorado take the Show on the road to Mexico City, and a taco tour ensues. We need a study done on dad strength vs. hamate surgery superpowers.
    We say “I love me a good loophole,” “spanked with Mezcal,” and “a brief moment of shirtlessness.” 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.

    Boosers, Closers, and the Yeet

    Boosers, Closers, and the Yeet

    Kenley Jansen and Craig Kimbrel are climbing to the top of the all time saves list so the takeaway is don’t yeet the ball from the last out. Looking at you, Colton “more cowbell” Cowser. Andrew hits homer #300, Adley hits grand slam #1, and Josh hits his head. On purpose. Neto can’t get a day off, Oswaldo can but Pottymouth says please don’t – or maybe yes?  Elly remains good at baseball, and Patrick is finally off  the IL. Patti loves the collaborative “people’s celly” of the BAL hydration station – because there’s no “I” in Team. Pottymouth considers a Booser jersey, and a game day on a lazy river.
    We say, “big-ass leg bone,” “that sounded a little dirty,” and “”Jinxarella.” 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.

    If We Took a Holliday

    If We Took a Holliday

    Our first visit to OPACY this season was an anticipated debut, a miracle of (not)rain, and a much heralded yet underwhelming Jackson vs Jackson smackdown. And lots of attention to the number seven. Elly has us considering a road trip to CIN, and Vaughn makes us think Worcester is nice this time of year. Zach has six runs to his credit in only one game, but the wrong direction. Spencer is down for the count but now we know more about internal braces, so there’s that. Brianna Wakefield’s knuckleball is our favorite pitch of the week. Julio Urias is buried in misdemeanors of  his own making, and Ohtani’s interpreter apparently used his powers for evil.  Venezuela hosts their 14th annual Women’s Baseball Championship and prepares for Thunder Bay. And we’re off to cross train with hockey.
    We say “Lions, just lions, all the time. Rawr,” “my betting consists of when a relative gives me a scratch off lottery ticket,” and “We’re gonna have an L of a good time.” 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.
