Ben and Tom join John in wondering how to pronounce Scooter Gennett's surname, whether anyone saw his four homers under that came uni, and to dig deep on the roasting hot Houston Astros. As ever, fan questions lead things to take a turn for the weird - apologies to Ryan Hanigan who looks like he could kill again. Here's the Ben Lindbergh Astros piece we discussed:https://theringer.com/2017-mlb-houston-astros-searching-for-a-flaw-f73f4c8f774e?gi=776b54817f8c Here's where to vote...
