Hometown Announcers, Sean Manaea, & Sabermetrics Gripes (w/ Paul F. Tompkins)

Wed Apr 25 2018 (01:21:11)

Rhea and baseball texting buddy PAUL F. TOMPKINS (clad in a throwback Philadelphia Phillies cap, check @threeswingspod for the evidence) get LOUD about hometown announcers, 90s Phillies dirtbags, gum chewing, outfield pools, the limits of sabermetrics, and so so much more.

Plus Rhea talks a few things that make the MLB pretty wonderful right now, including Francisco Lindor homering for the hometown crowd in Puerto Rico, the Royals and Tigers figuring it out with nothing on the line, Brandon Belt fighting off a record 21 pitches, and Sean Manaea no hitting the best team in baseball.
