MLB Domestic Violence Policy, Dog Whistles, & Redemption Narrative Problems

Fri Jun 29 2018 (54:18)

Rhea discusses the MLB's approach to domestic violence and the fallacy of "redemption narratives" when it pertains to perpetrators of physical and sexual abuse, including the most recent examples of Roberto Osuna and Luke Heimlich.

Plus are the Cubs legit contenders this year? The Dodgers set a HR record. Favorite signature pitches. And why did teams sleep on JD Martinez?

And some excellent Rosin Bag questions about radio broadcasters, the problem with gendered jerseys and sizing, A League of Their Own, dog whistles, pride nights, and more.

CHECK OUT CAMERON ESPOSITO'S NEW STAND UP SPECIAL "RAPE JOKES" A standup special about sexual assault from a survivor's perspective. Proceeds benefit RAINN, the largest US anti-sexual violence organization.
