Today’s word of the day is ‘sorry’ as in sorry for messing up as in we apologize for what we did as in Javy Baez and Francisco Lindor said sorry for the thumbs down fiasco. Why is this necessary? Stop tweeting and just win, baby! Mets fans booed Baez… he scores on a play to walk it off and the crowd goes crazy! That’s it! (7:55) Al Leiter and John Smoltz won’t get vaccinated so MLB Network is sending them home, but letting them work. Is this the right way to handle this? (14:00) Urban Meyer had a slip-up. He said not being vaccinated was part of his roster cut decisions. Uh oh. (22:20) Review: Fantastic Fungi. (24:50) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me if I would trade Ben Simmons no matter what. (31:40) NPPOD. (34:30) Wait to see update: Xander Bogaerts pulled from game over positive test. (39:20) Brad Hand was away on bereavement leave and when he came back the Toronto Blue Jays DFA’d him. The Blue Jays traded for him a month ago. No big deal. What the big deal is they did it on August 31! Meaning it would take 72 hours to clear waivers and he misses deadline to be signed and make a postseason roster.
