Alex and Bobby react to the news that MLB plans to provide housing for all its minor leaguers starting in 2022, wonder what that will look like in practice, and theorize how that will affect the continued organizing effort among minor leaguers. Then, they’re joined by Josh Gondelman, comedian and producer of Desus & Mero, to make a humble case for why the remaining non-partisan baseball fans should throw their support behind the…gasp…Boston Red Sox. Finally, this week’s Three Up, Three Down features an existential look at advertising, Carlos Correa apologia, and one more slap in the face to A’s fans.
