This week’s episode, we begin by discussing the fifth and sixth no-hitters of the baseball season, a masterpiece by Spencer Turnbull in Seattle, followed by a gem from Corey Kluber in Texas the next night. From there, we discuss Tony LaRussa speaking out against his own player, Yermin Mercedes, in support of baseball’s unwritten rules, and the reaction around the league. To wrap up, we discuss a trade between the Brewers and Rays, a cheating accusation against the Rockies, milestones for Cole and Scherzer, injuries to Mike Trout and others, and the initial USA Baseball roster.
