In NCiB Boyfriend news, Salvador Perez is having a career year, Franmil Reyes proves his boyfriend cred, and Ian Happ flashes some potential. Veteran Gregory Polanco is released by the Pirates to make room for Pottymouth's bf Cole Tucker, and Will Smith credits his batting tear on no fear of failing. We take “not afraid to fail” to heart and present an edit-free episode. The COVID report is back with a vengeance. A positive test for Zach Eflin distracts the Phillies from his knee trouble, and takes out two more vaxxed teammates leading to Bryce Harper offering to serve as emergency back-up catcher. Kiké Hernadez and Christian Arroyo are out for the Red Sox, joined by a flock of Cardinals, and a boatload of Rangers including several starting pitchers. The Nationals and Astros announce vaccine requirements for all non-player staff -- player vaccination requirements are subject to collective bargaining.The investigation into Angel's pitcher Tyler Scaggs' death is alluding to a larger drug ring within the team, including former communications staffer Eric Kay using an app to arrange for delivery of opiates to the ballpark, in return for game tickets and in once case a Mike Trout autographed ball. The Pasadena police have turned over the results of the Trevor Bauer investigation to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office so that the DA can determine if charges will be filed.Alcides Escobar builds a boyfriend case by bringing his son's little league team to a Nats game in Miami. NCiB patron saint Sean Doolittle heads to the wrong Washington. Chris Sale throws an immaculate inning and changes his shirt. The Atlantic League lab rats have some sore lats and not much difference in batting stats three weeks into the experiment of moving the pitching mound back a foot.

17:55- Sean Doolittle joins Grant & Danny, and we look back on all the great memories from his 3 1/2 years here in DC. The role he played in DC on and off the field is immeasurable, especially the World Series he helped bring home. 31:34- Danny absolutely loses his mind over Ryan Kerrigan and his contract. Why couldn't Ron sign him back to the roster if he wants the team to be younger when we have a 38 year old QB? Doesn't make much sense, and Danny goes all in.

The Nats called up Luis García, not another outfielder, to take Victor Robles' roster spot. Bobby Blanco and Amy Jennings on if the organization has a depth problem. Plus, hear from Sean Doolittle on his return to Nats Park (48:08)!

It will air on CBS on June 6. Chouquette Chocolates in Maryland has decided to capitalize on the cicada invasion by serving them up as a chocolatey treat and "it's really like a chocolate covered potato chip". And the Capital Weather gang at the Washington Post wrote an article about Cicada pee. “Their pee is like watery tree sap, so it’s wise to wear a hat when walking in the woods this month. But it’s harmless, just like the cicadas that squirt it out.” Max Scherzer doesn’t let Georgetown University’s graduation at Nats Park stop him from his routine of practicing on the field. Sean Doolittle returned to Nationals Park for the first time since signing with the Cincinnati Reds last offseason. He received a standing ovation from the crowd as well as a video tribute on the scoreboard prior to Tuesday’s game. Rolling to Remember is back and scheduled for Sunday, May 30, expect road closures and parking restrictions for the annual event that brings thousands of motorcycles into the District to bring awareness to veterans missing in action and veteran suicide crisis in America. We remember Senator John Warner and his legacy in Virginia as Senator for 30 years and service to this country. He was a veteran of World War II and the Korean War and was one of five World War II veterans serving in the Senate at the time of his retirement in 2008. He was beloved for his work on both sides of the aisle.

The Nationals lost 2-1 at home to the Reds. Mark & Al open with a familiar 2021 theme, which is a struggling Washington offense. Is Juan Soto still not right? Why did Ryan Zimmerman pinch hit for Kyle Schwarber instead of Starlin Castro in the 9th? On the bright side, Josh Bell has raised his batting average 80 points in the past two weeks.(11:57) The Nationals wasted a solid pitching performance by Max Scherzer as he struck out nine. The hosts recap the ace's outing, as the two homers he allowed ended up being the difference.(19:14) Joe Ross will start on Wednesday as Erick Fedde is near a return to the field. Is this Ross auditioning again for his spot in the rotation or does Fedde still have to make a rehab start in AAA?(25:53) Luis Garcia was called up to fill the vacant roster spot. What does this say how the organization feels about Carter Kieboom?(31:25) Sean Doolittle, who is now with Cincinnati, was honored pregame. Al poses to Mark, is Doolittle the best reliever in franchise history?

We then talk about the news that Will Harris and Victor Robles hit the IL and what we can expect the Nats to do to replace them in the meantime. We discuss the sweep over the Orioles and how optimistic we should be about the performance.

Matthew and Toby meet for one last “regular” season check-in to discuss how our teams have fared and go Three Up, Three Down on the Cy Young Award going through Ohio, Sean Doolittle’s (maybe) final games with the Nats, the wonder that is Jose Ramirez, Washington getting another high draft pick, Joe West being awful (surprise!), and the only plausible way to get out of this dark timeline. And now that it’s confirmed that Jeff Gabriel was wrong about this season, the boys finally discuss expanded playoffs.
It’s just all part of the show … By Mike Burke “Why do they keep showing this?” That was the most overheard question at the beginning of each #NFLTheTVShow presentation last Sunday afternoon during the reconvening of our weekly – okay, daily -- Tavern Mensa session. It was finally football season again, such as it may or may not end up being, and all the lads in attendance carried an extra giddy-up to their step. This was, after all, our first full-fledged meeting since #NFLTheTVShow closed the curtain on yet another hit season to rave reviews and ratings way back in February with its annual season-finale, which, I understand, some people like to call … the Super Bowl? There wasn’t a care to be had. After all, the reach of the Monday morning alarm clock was still a good 15 to 18 hours away for those currently fortunate enough to still have to answer it, and all the boys were together once more to revel in each other’s company, as well as our lies (that grow in scale with each new swig of hops) and to watch football all day long. Our world’s troubles had been left at the door. Yet, somehow, they found their way all at once to the dozen television screens hanging in our Mensa hall, as those annoying networks persisted on showing us members of competing teams joining forces to protest racial injustices in the United States with their various forms of unified and personal demonstration. The demonstrations had begun on Thursday night when the Houston Texans remained in their locker room for the playing of the national anthem before their game with Kansas City, a form of demonstration that was repeated by a number of NFL teams on Sunday. Players who chose to demonstrate on the field during the national anthem took knees, raised fists and locked arms with teammates and opponents alike. There were many methods of protest on display over the weekend, and that’s what seemed to bother a select number of viewers from our little peanut gallery the most – that they were on display. “Why are the networks showing this? Politics has no place in sports!” Politics has no place in sports? Where have you been picking up your mail for the past century, Never Never Land? Politics has been the core fabric of sports – organized sports – since the beginning of time, starting with the original Olympic Games nearly 3,000 years ago which were held as a religious festival in honor of Zeus, the king of the gods. (Not long before Budweiser became the King of Beers.) I mean, what’s ever been more political than religion? Then throw in some organized sports and some know-it-all parents and you might as well just stage a convention. Just since the beginning of the 20th century, we’ve had the politics of Jack Johnson, Jim Thorpe, the Black Sox, the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Jackie Robinson, The Cleveland Summit and Muhammad Ali, the 1968 Summer Olympics, the 1972 Munich Olympics and haven’t stopped since. Nor will we. For as Washington Nationals relief pitcher Sean Doolittle said in March, “Sports are the reward of a functioning society.” Just how functioning our society stands at the moment is a matter of debate, but that politics and sports are intertwined has remained a constant and continues to stand the test of time. This is nothing new. The only difference this time around is it’s being tolerated; actually, sanctioned and mass produced by the National Football League, which suddenly is wearing its new-found social justice on its shield as though it had been there for centuries. Aside from the fact that the demonstrations are the news of the day – not the entertainment of the day for a functioning society – the networks are showing them because #NFLTheTVShow is their meal ticket and the NFL has sold out to the movement at hand, having five days ago launched its new brand campaign (what do you know?), “It Takes All Of Us.” Unless, of course, your name is Colin Kaepernick or Eric Reid. That’s right, Commissioner Roger Goodell and his 32 bosses are suddenly on board and, certainly, it’s not a bad thing that they’re on board, even if most of their cold black hearts aren’t really into being on board. What the NFL is on board with is the brand – any brand, as long as it sells. They’ve done a 180 turn because they have no choice but to go with the brand of the players, because it is the brand of the athlete these days that sells; not the brand of the league, or even a particular team. The heavily coveted young market – the same market Weasel Rob Manfred claims he is trying to destroy the game of baseball for – follows players first and the brand they promote and the products they sell. It’s no longer about the team with the current market – the way the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and L.A. Lakers were in the ‘70s and ‘80s, for instance. The team stuff will come once the player is determined – Jordan, Kobe, LeBron, Tom Brady. Players don’t stay in one place any more for their entire careers. There’s too much money to be had wearing another team’s stuff. And the NFL has finally caught on and, yes, Goodell admitted that, Gee whiz, maybe we should have listened to what “Kaep” was trying to tell us a few years ago. Goodell had his epiphany when he said he realized the “misrepresentation” of what Kaepernick and other players had been doing in their peaceful protests – “exercising their right to bring attention to something that needs to get fixed” – “gnawed” at him. Then that means he didn’t understand what had been happening in communities around the country and he really was the privileged and stupid Country Club junior executive waiting in the wings for his turn at the corner office? No, Goodell understood. He just didn’t want to see because he was afraid to cross Jerry Jones and the likes. But now the likes are following another brand, and there’s their boy Goodell leading the parade. So now what’s a little peaceful protest or two before each #NFLTheTVShow, particularly now that we’ve marketed our own brand for it? You don’t like it? Look away. Because now it’s all just part of the show. Mike Burke has been writing and covering sports since 1981. Write to him at email@example.com, or YDKJackpodcast@gmail.com.

8/13/20-- After much anticipation, Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden has officially announced his 2020 running mate: California Senator Kamala Harris. This is a historic selection in a number of ways. Harris is the first Black woman to be on a major party's presidential ticket. And because Biden has said if he is elected in 2020 he would not run for a second term, Harris would be well-placed for a 2024 presidential run if events run that course. And, because there's ALWAYS a Massachusetts connection, the announcement puts an end to speculation over who might fill Elizabeth Warren's Senate seat if she were to become the Vice President. (Still much speculation to come if she's selected for a cabinet position, though.) Across the commonwealth, schools are deciding how to start the academic year. Different districts are choosing different plans. Some are beginning with all-remote learning, some with all in-person, and others with a hybrid approach. Steve mentions one thing to keep an eye on is the economic impact of school reopenings. One sentiment he's been hearing is, "I will not be able to keep my job if I'm also expected to be home and if I'm expected to be supervising [my kids'] learning.” As the primary election approaches and anxieties remain around voting in-person, a new survey from The MassINC Polling Group finds about 4 in 10 Massachusetts voters plan to vote by mail. Among those voters choosing the mail-in option, a stunning 85% of them plan to vote for Biden, with just 9% of them planning to vote for Trump. Election night this year is going to look different from every other election night in recent history, with tallies coming in later than we've come to expect. In Massachusetts, given this data split, we could see Biden's votes racking up much more slowly than Trump's come election night. Sports teams are facing a hurdle as Major League Baseball is postponing scheduled games in response to the latest COVID-19 outbreak among its players. Meanwhile, basketball and hockey are happening, but in bubbles. MassINC Polling Group Research Director and Vice Admiral of Horse Race sports correspondents Maeve Duggan stops by to give her take on the future of sports in the age of coronavirus. Maeve points to polling done by Seton Hall earlier this spring that found, for the most part, sports fans are not comfortable attending games in person until a vaccine is available. Plus, a series of Harris polls released this summer found a majority of Americans (58%) don't even think the MLB should be playing right now. Maeve directs us to Washington Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle, who said, “Sports are like the reward of a functioning society." To that, Maeve says, "Do we have a functioning society right now? I think many would argue no."
It's waiver day in the fantasy baseball world, and while this weekend falls short of last Sunday's bounty, there are still players worth chasing in all formats. It all starts with Mike Tauchman, who should be a regular starter with Giancarlo Stanton on the IL.

This week we talk to former NBA basketball player and Minnesota native Royce White about the police murder of George Floyd. White has been at the heart of the protests in the twin cities and talks to us about his experiences there and his insights into the larger issues of white supremacy, policing, and the role of athletes. We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about the potential for a coalition of anti-racist athletes that might develop in the wake of the killing of George Floyd. In addition, we have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to the white athletes that have spoken up about the murder of George Floyd including Joe Burrow, Carson Wentz, Sean Doolittle, Julie and Zach Ertz, JJ Watt and others, and MLB athletes that continue to stay silent on the issue of police killings, with few exceptions. We also got a brand new Kaepernick Watch. All that and more on this week’s Edge of Sports!
