Wes & Erin decide to do another week of Chekhov short stories, and then “Thelma and Louise.” So next time, we’ll be discussing Chekhov’s “The Student” and “A Medical Case.” We discuss “Bull Durham” and why the movie works. Tim Robbins is Wes’s doppelgänger. Susan Sarandon is ageless, and her role in the movie as spiritual and sexual mentor to baseball players is really something. Erin loves minor league baseball; Wes has never been. What makes baseball great? Sarandon’s character Annie says it all: “there’s a spacious non-time kind of time to it.” Relatedly, Wes lives in a spacious multi-family existence.
