This episode is a little different, since Michael is current on vacation in Cape Cod, trying to figure out how many times he can go to the Treehouse Brewery shop there.

Botty McBotface has composed this entire episode, with help from OpenAI’s GPT3 and some choice prompts. It’s weird, but that’s alright. We’ll be normal next week.

We discuss some of Zack Scott’s comments today about what just might be getting all the Mets injured lately. We talk some black jerseys and Mercury Mets.

I’d share my trippy images of the Mercury Mets stadium, but I think I’m gonna spin that stuff up into an Optimistic Mets Fan post, so stay tuned for that.

No episode next week as Michael takes off for Cape Cod, though maybe Botty has some other ideas. You never know!

Michael and Jason against discuss pitching, or the lack thereof. They also discuss the Mets approach at the plate, or the lack thereof.

Lots of pondering about what’s going wrong, energy levels, fatigue, and some extra Botty to make up for it. Botty jumps in near the end for a longer review of a different beer she’s drinking.

Here’s a sample image that the VQGAN+CLIP machine learning tool generated for a Botty avatar. It’s real funky, but I’m having fun.
