At a time where we’re all supposed to be excitedly talking about Mookie and 2020 Dodgers, instead baseball has left us no choice but to live in 2017 again. MLB players are at war with the Astros and commissioner Rob Manfred… the wonder is “how the hell did this get to this point?”
On today’s show:
- Taking the Show on the Road
- Let’s Bash (on Some Astros)
- Bellinger Jersey Giveaway Winner
- Rob Manfred: Public Enemy Number One
- Who Do We Hate More?
Joined by our friend, and Dodgers Nation postgame host Doug McKain, there is so much to break down from a long weekend of arguments between players, teams, and the commissioner of Major League Baseball.
After we jump into some comments and pay a few bills, Brook tears into the Astros storyline and we dig in way too much to the Jose Altuve tattoo narrative. It’s seriously surprising how much people wanted to talk about the tattoo. And with the tattoo comes buzzer/no buzzer talk.
The Astros punishment continues to be a laughing stock in baseball, and it led to a war of words between players all around the game. However, a huge focus has been on Cody Bellinger and Carlos Correa’s back and forth and we look at how Correa set himself up for major failure.
Enter to Win a Justin Turner Signed Bat!
Next, Rob Manfred faced the media 3 times in 3 days and ultimately struck out each time. His most questionable comment turned out to be his de-valuation of the World Series trophy — something that irked Justin Turner and other MLB stars. Additionally, the guys go all-in on the idea of precedence among other things.
The question ultimately comes: is Manfred the worse commissioner in sports? And are the Astros now officially more hated than the Giants amongst Dodgers fans?
