Maybe the Red Sox should turn to their young minor league arms to improve their 2015 chances. And perhaps they can think outside of the box in terms of how to use them.

So how does one prepare for a 21 7game/183 Day trip to all 30 MLB Parks.  Well, it is actually going to be another week in driving back through Canada.

mlb-reports-banner_v7.jpg

Here is what I had to do just to make this venture.

The whole reason why I decided to do this trip was to recover from a bad car accident all the way back from mid 2010.

I was hit and runned by some guy who I still haven’t met.

Luckily I had some witnesses who came to my aid.  I also received a payout for the incident. It was never enough, but it got me on the road now.

Going through the 1st two weeks of the year was tough. I have worked too many days in the last few years not to have an impact on my first leg of the trip.

We left off with me taking down my 2nd straight Phillies and Yankees home venues Doubleheaders.

On Apr 13 – i had an am early morning Megabus trip from New York to Philly,  before I would later return to downtown Philadelphia to board a bus to Baltimore.

Lots of times in this year long odyssey I will be going back to the home base on Sicklerville,  NJ. In order to shower and bring fresh clothes out for the next city Read the rest of this entry

With so few teams truly out of contention, the 2015 season could be the perfect time for the Phillies, Braves, Brewers and Rockies to stock up in their farm system.

Make trades thinking of quantity over quality. That worked for the A’s and Astros!

That and a few passing references to Tom Brady on  Episode 931 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Scott Van Slyke, Mark Teixeira, Shelby Miller, Colby Lewis, Adam Eaton, Christian Yelich and Tom Koehler all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

Do NOT pinch run for your best hitter in a close game! You would think that would be managing 101.

Plus I have the hardest Who Owns Baseball decision of the year so far.

It is a weighing the pros and cons Episode 930 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Martin Maldonado, Jason Kipnis, Ryan Vogelsong, Kolten Wong, Marcus Semien, Andrew Cashner, Shane Greene and the controversial Michael Pineda all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

Martin Maldonado collected 3 hits including a game tying 7th inning homer and a walk off single in the 11th, icing a 3-2 Brewers victory over the Cubs.

Jason Kipnis singled, doubled, tripled, stole a base, scored two and drove in two in the Indians 8-2 victory over the Twins.

Ryan Vogelsong kept the Giants in the game with 7 innings of 4 hit ball, walking none and allowing a single run. He would not get the decision but the Champs would walk off 3-2 winners over Miami.

And in one of the most difficult decisions in Who Owns Baseball and one that will not make everyone happy, Michael Pineda struck out 16 Baltimore batters and walked none over 7 innings, earning the 6-2 win for the Yankees.

Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.

Kolten Wong hit a game tying 2 run homer in the 6th inning but his Cardinals would eventually lose the 4-3 game in Pittsburgh.

Marcus Semien went 3-4 including a pair of homers off of King Felix. But the A’s would fall short in Seattle, 4-3.

Andrew Cashner walked none and allowed just 4 hits over 7 innings. Unfortunately for him, 2 of those hits were solo home runs and he became a hard luck loser for the Padres, 2-1 in Arizona.

Shane Greene pitched beautifully in an important rivalry game. He went 8 innings, walking none and allowing just 4 hits and 1 run but got a no decision as the Tigers fell to KC, 2-1.

MLB Shutout Survivor 2015: Then There Were 3: Yanks, Blue Jays and Tigers Last Clubs To Be Bageled.

Miggy Cabrera is cracking the ball around like he did in 20112 and 2013, and far more than the 2015 season he had last year.  With Victor Martinez showing signs of breaking out of his slump, along with the Cespedes and Cabrera factor, the Tigers might just have enough to fend off being Shutout the longest of this years contest.

MLB Shutout Survivor 2015:  Which Team Do You Have Last To Be Blanked This Year?

Last Year the winners of the contest were the Angels, who lasted pretty much to Memorial Day Weekend without registering a 0.  It was a battle between them and Colorado late in the year, with Los Angeles finally prevailing.

Boston took the zero on Friday night, and were eliminated by the Jays, who are still among the 3 squads yet to register no runs in a contest.

The New York Yankees are leading the AL East, and a big reason why they are doing this is also the top of the lineup. Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner are always on the basepaths, creating havoc for power hitters like Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Brian McCann to reel them in.

While we were all laughing at Carlos Beltran for his start of the year, he has hit better recently, and has mustered 9 doubles of the year, and is hitting a lot of warning track outs.  He is scraping by near the Mendoza Line, but is faring much better in May.

To me there is no surprise the Detroit Tigers are among the final clubs alive, nor is it a stretch to see the only Canadian franchise vying for the crown as well. Read the rest of this entry
