Episode 57: The One Without Jen

With Jen away, Sarah and Mary are joined by friend of the podcast Shakeia Taylor to discuss Max Muncy’s unlikely breakout, plus Shohei Ohtani’s return from the disabled list. They explore the “sexiest” plays in baseball, inspired by Javy Baez’s steal of home. They look into what’s going on with the Nationals, as well as Jenrry Mejia’s lifetime ban being rescinded — plus, other instances of baseball bans getting overturned. They also examine the Dexter Fowler situation in St. Louis, contextualized with Shakeia’s Hardball Times article, “The Civil War, Civil Rights and Black Baseball.”
