Reds announcer Thom Brennaman was caught using an anti-LGBTQ slur at the beginning of the Reds broadcast yesterday. We discuss the implications for his job, his apology, and the culture that exists in baseball that allows these things to happen so consistently (2:43). Then, we summarize a week in hotly debated Fernando Tatis Jr. discourse—including taking a special sports-radio call—before closing with The Good, the Bad, and the Uggla (25:14).
