RHEA IS BACK just in time for the Division Races to heat up! Rhea talks the Dodgers terrible August and whether or not it spells disaster for their postseason chances. Will the miracle A's catch the Astros in the AL West? Are the statistically dominant Red Sox somehow underrated? Cleveland is running away with the AL Central; what are their chances in the postseason? And Atlanta and Philly are running away from the Nationals in the NL East. Rhea has thoughts and predictions on all your postseason contenders.


Plus Rhea talks baseball fights, beanballs, and fake rivalries. And recaps their experiences at the Baseball for All 2018 Nationals in Rockford, IL. Big thanks to all the Threebies who attended!

Greg also tells some truly unforgettable baseball stories... postseason memories, meeting Joe Madden at the breakfast table... too many stories to count.

PLUS Rhea talks about women in baseball (and the lack thereof), female umpires, the Sonoma Stompers, and the ways in which other professional baseball leagues (besides the MLB) are making a way for female players and non-gender binary players.

Read "The Old Ball Game" by Britni de la Cretaz (BITCH MEDIA) for more: https://www.bitchmedia.org/article/baseball-has-a-female-umpire-problem

AND Rhea analyzes more Hot Stove moves, including the Yu Darvish signing, Jake Arrieta predictions, and hot takes on the Diamondbacks, and Rockies.

Rhea Butcher (@rheabutcher) kicks off her new weekly baseball podcast with a brief history of life as a baseball fan (and a Cleveland baseball fan at that), including plenty of TBS and heartbreak.

Rhea recaps some of the major moves from the MLB OFFSEASON (aka THE HOT STOVE), including the Giancarlo Stanton trade and the Shohei Ohtani signing, and the respective futures of the Yankees and Angels in the American League.

Rhea then takes a swing at the saga of CLEVELAND'S (at long last discontinued) RACIST LOGO, discussing the history of "Chief Wahoo," her own personal history with the logo, and the importance of self-correction.

And finally, Rhea talks to one of the funniest and nicest guys in comedy, JOSH GONDELMAN, about the moral struggle of reconciling his lifelong New England Patriots fandom with his own personal politics.

This series. Oh man, this series. Just relentless, gut punch baseball over and over and over. Not to mention the ongoing Yuri Gurriel debacle, two Bushes throwing out the first pitch, the Halliburton ad in Minute Maid park, the maybe-a-silver-lining Mueller indictments looming in the background, and, what's this, gloomy weather all of a sudden in LA... No matter who you're rooting for, no matter where you're from, RHEA IS THE CATHARSIS YOU NEED TODAY.

"This is a baseball podcast but as with anything... Everything is something else." Rhea goes in on the upside down morality of the Gurriel "redemption narrative," Dave Roberts' continuing managerial miscues, Game 5's mind boggling strike zone, and the reasons why our society just can't seem to protect people from abuse and can't figure out who actually deserves blame.
