Sure, new Padre Manny Machado probably got the biggest free-agent deal in sports history and actual baseball games are on the horizon, but Gemma and Michael are here to discuss the most important thing about Spring Training: Who showed up at camp with a whole new look?

Gemma, Dakota and Chris have a lot to say about A-Rod's Grammys outfit, namely that it's nice J-Lo appeared to have let him choose it himself. They also discuss Zack Britton's name change (the "ch" is now a "k"), Hunter Pence's game café and Blake Snell's incredibly chill Twitch stream.

They also demand short-film award nominations for Andrew McCutchen, who has shown he's truly a master of the Instagram short.

Dakota, Gemma and Eric are having a great October, but theirs isn't as great at the Braves fan that got Ronald Acuna Jr.'s face tattooed on her arm or every single member of the Boston Red Sox's.
