If the 1969 Cubs won the World Series, they would have been the most beloved champ of all time.

Which other teams would have been the most embraced by their fans? The 1971 Giants? The 1978 Red Sox?

I think of that and give much respect to my former boss, Bonnie Hunt, and her wonderful mom Alice on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Here is the video of Bonnie and Alice singing with Ernie Banks.

The Yankees want to keep some money from A-Rod?

That doesn’t seem fair when you consider all the money he has made the Yankees!

The Yankees should act more like the Giants and just embrace their PED filled MVP.

The Red Sox should act more like me and my mom… find ways to AVOID tension. Do this by retiring Boggs and Pedro’s number.

How does that connect with the Batman enemy, Man-Bat?

Why bother making picks so early in the year?

The closers could be different! Eventual post season heroes could be starting the season with another team.

But as of right now, the Chicago White Sox look like a very dangerous team.
