Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen look back on their obviously short sighted and foolish 2017 MLB Predictions. How has the first two months of the season changed their preseason views?
Before that, it was a big couple days for the long ball throughout the league. Albert Pujols hit his 600th career homer and Scooter Gennett, of all people, bashed four in on game. Jerry Remy also said something silly about translators during Tuesday night’s Red Sox-Yankees contest.
Finally, Greg has some fun involving team jerseys and one team mascot flips the bird to his fans.

Hosted by Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen, Crowding the Plate is a weekly baseball podcast here on Last Word on Sports. It aims to cover the fun, yet analytical, side of baseball once a week.
Joe Hojnacki writes about soccer for Last Word on Sports and is also co-host of the Crowding the Plate Podcast. An avid Red Sox fan, Joe idolizes Bryce Harper and feels that his fun showmanship is the way to save baseball from becoming overrun by old folks, and from dying out.
Greg Hessen is the resident Tigers fan on Crowding the Plate. As somewhat more of a traditionalist, Greg longs for the days of pitchers hitting in the American League and a landscape that doesn’t include things like bat flips and PEDs tarnishing the greatest of all games.
