Kate, John, and Matthew get together to talk about a surprising first week in Mariners baseball and award the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly to the season so far.

0 - 13:00: Because this is a Mariners podcast, we start with the Ugly, which, as John rather ominously intones, “comes out at night.” Dylan Moore’s adventures in the infield are gone over and judged to be significantly worse than the 1987 classic film Adventures in Babysitting. But this is not Dylan Moore’s Ugly to wear alone: in true esprit d’corps, the whole team has come together to record some truly eye-bleeding errors. 

13:00 - 23:00: On to the Bad, which is pretty clearly the Bullpen of Terror, but not in the good way you want a bullpen to be terror. Kate proposes there’s a Quantum Leap/Freaky Friday scenario going on with Cory Gearrin. The crew ponders the question: “which reliever most terrifies you when their name comes up on the Dial-a-Reliever?” Kate and John debate the merits of Texas’s development system and if there’s maybe something to be done with Connor Sadzuck. Zadseck. Sedzuck. Look, we just started getting Brandon Brennan’s name right, you’re going to have to wait your turn, Connor.

23:00 - 39:00: Finally, THE GOOD! First, some light shading from Kate about the Red Sox potentially not being very good, an assertion Matthew and John quickly shut down. We also introduce Kate to the wonders of macaroni penguins, and talk about our favorite guys on the team.

39:00 - 59:00: Digging into listener questions! Which position player gets called up first? Unsung heroes of the young season? Is the King washed past the point of no return? The crew also makes some prescient remarks about Anthony Swarzak closing games.

59:30: Matthew’s DM’s are super open.
