  • 3 Strikes, Youre Out #74: The Mets Mr. Slump with Melody Maia Monet

    3 Strikes, You're Out #74: The Mets' Mr. Slump with Melody Maia Monet

    07/05/2021 Duração: 42min

    I'll be honest, I didn't have "Mets fans booing Francisco Lindor by the end of April" on my 2021 baseball bingo card. But so far, the highlight of his season has been wearing Eddie Murphy's Coming to America jacket to Spring Training. And all of Queens has been responding to him as if he just shouted "Good morning, my neighbors!" On today's episode, Youtuber and Friend of the Pod Melody Maia Monet is back to figure out what on earth has led to Lindor's hellacious early season slump and what he can do to get out of it. Take some $300 million contract pressure, add some good old fashioned New York sports fan rage, mix in a little deadened baseball, and simmer it in a swing that suddenly look as coordinated as Elaine Benes on the dance floor and you have Mr. Smile's current predicament. We also talk about Jacob deGrom's astounding dominance, the Mets' lineup's equally astounding ability to make it look like they're somehow facing deGrom every time he pitches, and the team's weird run of sad sack second basemen.

    Hear Caitlyn Jenner Flip Flop on Trans Athletes: Her Friend Bethany Grace Howe Reacts

    05/05/2021 Duração: 48min

    Our guest Dr. Bethany Grace Howe knows Caitlyn Jenner better than anyone we know. She reacts to hearing the wanna-be-candidate in her own words, from an interview with Dawn Ennis for this podcast in April 2020: “I think every trans person, if they’re into athletics, should have an opportunity to compete and to improve themselves. I think sports is such a great way to learn a lot about yourself. And yeah, I want to, hopefully they’ll have the opportunity in the future to do whatever they can do. I’m all for it.

    3 Strikes, You're Out #73: Post Padres/Dodgers Euphoria with Kevin McCaffrey

    30/04/2021 Duração: 32min

    During the offseason, there was one dream match-up every baseball fan had circled on the schedule: Padres vs. Dodgers. And after the first two series between those teams, this reborn rivalry has exceeded everyone's expectations. Friend of the pod Kevin McCaffrey (Away Games Podcast) is back because this is the kind of series that makes you want to talk to awesome people about how awesome baseball is. To borrow from my Outsports colleague Brian Bell, there's nothing more compelling than a good Face vs. Heel match. The Padres have a whole roster of babyfaces: Fernando Tatís Jr, Yu Darvish, Eric Hosmer, Victor Caratini... And the Dodgers have one giant heel: Trevor Bauer. As if to emphasize his Trevor Bauerness, this week he decided to go after Tatís on twitter with a "You and Manny Machado are so gay HUR HUR HUR" joke. In 2021. Watching Tatís troll Bauer in multiple unique and distinct ways should earn him a unanimous MVP. Or at the very least, a Presidential Medal of Freedom. To top it off, I also propose a so

    3 Strikes, You're Out #72: The Annual White Sox No Hitter with Fritz Nothnagel

    23/04/2021 Duração: 40min

    Baseball is a game of traditions and this baseball podcast is no different. One of the biggest 3SYO traditions is that every time the White Sox throw a no-hitter, I invite friend of the pod Fritz Nothnagel (Punches and Punchlines) to celebrate it. EXTREMELY ZERO MOSTEL VOICE: Tradition! Tradition! This time, the honors went to Carlos Rodón, a former first round pick who has struggled to find consistency at the major league level. But the beauty of baseball is that sometimes it all comes together for one special game--and Rodón was almost perfect until hitting a batter in the ankle with two outs to go. We also discuss Tony LaRussa's attempt to answer the question "What is bullpen?" as well as the seemingly effortless brilliance of Luis Robert and the surprise emergence of Yermin Mercedes, a player who was seemingly born to sign a luxury car endorsement.

    No boycott. Why participating in the Olympics is a better idea than staying home - Five Rings To Rule Them All

    19/04/2021 Duração: 25min

    There's lots of chatter today about boycotts. When Major League Baseball decided to pull its 2021 All Star Game out of Atlanta, some people cheered while others jeered. This week we look at various conversations about sports boycotts from the past, including the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, and the 2015 Men's Final Four in Indianapolis. And we look ahead to calls for boycotting the 2022 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China, while contrasting that with the quieter calls to boycott the Tokyo Olympic Games over LGBTQ and other human rights issues.

    3 Strikes, You're Out #71: Angels on the Podcast with Jim Allen

    16/04/2021 Duração: 50min

    The Los Angeles Angels are an enigma. For one thing, they insist on being called the Los Angeles Angels despite the fact that they clearly play in Anaheim. No Angeleno ever says, "Well sure, the San Gabriels are nice...but have you seen SPLASH MOUNTAIN?" Today, I'm joined by Angels superfan Jim Allen to talk about his team's most perplexing conundrum: the Angels have the consensus best player in baseball in Mike Trout. They have the most exciting player in baseball in Shohei Ohtani. They have the most fascinating manager in baseball in Joe Maddon. And come June every season, they have no chance. How does this happen? Jim has a few ideas and they're called Arte Moreno and Mike Scioscia. We also reminisce about the joy of 2002 and the heartbreak of 1986. And finally, Jim tells an important story about what it was like to be a gay man who had an ambition to break into broadcasting in the 1970s and 80s.
