MLB Podcast: Yamamoto Got the Stuff and Ohtani Got Married

Subscribe to Baseball Bar-B-Cast

Shohei Ohtani isn’t the only new player in Dodger Blue making waves this season. Jake Mintz & Jordan Shusterman begin this episode in response to Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s first start of spring training, when he threw two scoreless innings against the Texas Rangers and looked exactly as advertised in terms of an electric addition to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting rotation.

Looking at the Dodgers’ NorCal rivals, the boys also react to Jung Hoo Lee’s first home run of spring training and discuss why the San Francisco Giants are secretly watchable, if not downright good, this season.

Jordan then dives into his frustration with spring training broadcasts and why so many March games aren’t available to watch other than a few highlights here and there. In a sport desperate to make fans more aware of its teams and stars, and in an age where everything is technologically possible, why limit the number of games fans can see?

After the break, the boys dive into what everyone came here for: Shohei Ohtani’s surprising wedding announcement. Jake and Jordan delve into Ohtani’s enormous privacy compared to other stars and try to figure out just how secret the Dodgers star’s wedding really was.

To close the show, the crew discusses a photo circulating the Internet of St. Louis Cardinals legend Yadier Molina dressed in Cubs gear, a stranger baseball themed tweet of the Vegas Golden Knights & Jordan’s visit to Ken Griffey Jr., who has dabbled in wildlife photography during his retirement years.
