It is time for the Sunday Request.
@sullybaseball Best and worst ballpark renovations. (In light of the one happening at Wrigley.)
— Werner Herzog’s Bear (@wernherzbear) December 20, 2014
The point of a renovation is to keep the memories and connection of an original ballpark intact. 2 have done it wonderfully.
2 others? Not so much.
Hear which ones I picked on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Can we ever shake our first impressions?
Can we ever change what we think?
I take a look at first impressions in relation to Bud Selig and to Connie Mack.
It is a lasting impression episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast
The Padres are going for it. Should they? Are they making a mistake?
It is worth thinking about in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
If the United States will open up their diplomatic relations with Cuba, the effect on the baseball talent pool could be gigantic.
It is a Cuban themed episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
We live in a world where PewDiePie is a sensation. What does that mean for baseball?
Plus thoughts on the Selig Experience on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
How exactly are the Nationals handling the small window of opportunity they have to win the World Series?.

@sullybaseball Now Jimmy Rollins? What do the Phillies have to do? Rebuild from ground up? New management? New ownership? What say you?
— Susan Magee (@PSUMagoo) December 12, 2014
The Phillies had a lot of work to do and they aren’t doing it right so far!
They need to make a major change right now.
And somehow I tied it into the movie Enchanted.
Not a lot of brotherly love on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Dick Allen was kept out of the Hall of Fame by a single Veterans Committee vote.
That didn’t sit well with me nor with author Dan Epstein. The creator of such classic books as Big Hair and Plastic Grass and Stars and Strikes joined me to discuss Allen’s legacy.
It is an honor the past episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Do the Padres think they are on the verge of contending? Are they insane?
It is another San Diego based episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Hey Red Sox fans… cheer up! Yeah we lost Jon Lester AGAIN. But the Red Sox picked up 3 starting pitchers and maybe every little thing is gonna be alright.
Eat some chowder and listen to this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
I started the podcast not knowing where Jon Lester was going to sign.
When the podcast ended and Lester was a Cub, this lifelong Red Sox fan was NOT happy.
It is a farewell to old friends episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
White Sox fans had a bad start to their day seeing Dick Allen et al snubbed for the Hall of Fame.
Their day picked up when the team went on a shopping spree!
It is a South Side episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Veterans Committee failed to vote Dick Allen and Tony Oliva to the Hall of Fame by one vote.
That didn’t sit well with me on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is Sunday which means it is time for The Sunday Request on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
@sullybaseball why do the ‘stros think they need a singular closer? I’m a firm believer in closer by committee.
— Alex Gibson (@Astros_Alex) December 4, 2014
I take a look at spending on a closer, how the right person can come out of nowhere and why it relates to the Howard Stern show.
Buster Olney wants to take a stand on the Hall of Fame vote. Really? Just cast a vote or not. It isn’t a brave stance.
Plus why you should be glad I’m NOT Jon Lester.
That and more on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Yankees improve their bullpen and defense. Didi Gregorious doesn’t need to replace Hall of Fame Derek Jeter. He just needs to replace old and breaking down Derek Jeter.
It is a Bronx Zoo episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
How did the Atlanta Braves go from one of the most reliable teams of the decade to a rebuilding project in 3 months?
It is an Atlanta focused reported episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Nobody cares if you report a trade or signing first. Meanwhile the Happ for Saunders deal is odd and why weren’t the Yankees in on Nick Markakis?
It is a first reported episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Long time and beloved figure of the Red Sox organization Dick Bresciani passed away this weekend.
His thumbprint on the Red Sox was indelible.
His wife, my first grade teacher, was instrumental in making me a baseball fanatic.
If it wasn’t for Mrs. Bresciani, there would be no Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Barry Bonds belongs in the Hall of Fame!

Don’t agree? Then first listen to today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

@sullybaseball what level of achievement is needed for the Sandoval trade to be seen as a success for both parties? Less than WS berth?
— En Æ Wakeman (@wakemanna) November 25, 2014
How will the Sandoval trade work out?
It is more than just looking at the numbers. Fans have to love and embrace him and there needs to be a “Sandoval Game.”
It is a tall order broken down on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Josh Donaldson was traded? WHAT?
The A’s sent their MVP candidate for 4 players including 3 minor leaguers who could be great or could fizzle?
Forget the evergreen podcast I had ready to go.
This is an emergency episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast!
The A’s and Marlins are reminding me of scalpers and someone could fleece the Padres
It is another “Stuck at the airport” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is a give thanks for our blessings episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Giants are moving on from Pablo Sandoval. And with the money they saved, they could fill a lot of holes and be back to the playoffs before you can say Joe Panik.
It is an out with the old and in with the new episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Mariners signed Kyle Seager to a big contract, assuring the Mariners will have yet ANOTHER All Star to play a decade with them.

Had Ted Williams not missed 3 years of his prime and 2 more seasons of solid numbers, his final stats would still put him among the best of all time.
I guess that made him an even bigger bad ass serving our country.
It is an episode of hypotheticals on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
