It is time for the Sunday Request.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsIn the light of the Mets collapse last night, I felt like this would be cruel and unusual to talk to a rabid Mets fan like Poppi Kramer. So I found myself refusing a Sunday Request. It turned out it was good that I did.

The Mets have turned this into a competitive World Series. Was Curtis Granderson’s homer the turning point?

Meanwhile Juan Uribe is back in the World Series where he belongs. And Raul Mondesi’s son did in zero regular season games what his father couldn’t do in 13 seasons: Play in the World Series.

BOO! It is the Halloween episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I missed the craziness and the controversy that happened at Dodger Stadium with Chase Utley.

Why?

Because I was at my 25th high school reunion.

Afterwards, in the parking lot of my old high school, I tried to piece together what happened at Dodger Stadium through the haze of the social media outrage.

And yes, I wore a Red Sox hat in my senior picture.

The Nate McLouth Signing Demonstrates A Lesson Learned For Washington About Bench Players

The Nationals failed to meet expectations as the Preseason favorites to lock down the World Series in 2013.  Heck, they didn't even qualify for the playoffs.  Whether it was injury, or complacency, the talent of this team didn't maximize their potential this year.  However, the club did go 24 - 12 in their last 36 Games Played, and made a late charge at the 2nd Wild Card Spot.  Most of the nucleus is coming back for the 2014 year.

The Nationals failed to meet expectations as the Preseason favorites to lock down the World Series in 2013. Heck, they didn’t even qualify for the playoffs. Whether it was injury, or complacency, the talent of this team didn’t maximize their potential this year. However, the club did go 24 – 12 in their last 36 Games Played, and made a late charge at the 2nd Wild Card Spot. Most of the nucleus is coming back for the 2014 year.  But a most underrated facet of an NL club sometimes is their bench.  Washington hopes to have a better bunch of pine riders in 2014 – than they did in 2013.

When the Nats built a bench on the cheap in 2012 it worked.

Steve Lombardozzi, Roger Bernadina, Chad Tracy, and Tyler Moore all had outstanding seasons, and the four of them combined cost less than half of what the Nationals will be paying Nate McLouth in 2014, but when they tried to do the same thing in 2013 it was a disaster.

The only back-up outfielder to have a higher than .700 OPS was Corey Brown and that was in 15 plate appearances. Hardly enough of a sample size to be trusted.

Nate McLouth gives the Nationals bench something it severely lacked in 2013, a reliable veteran. McLouth’s numbers aren’t great.

Today on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast, I pay tribute to Tom Seaver on his 69th birthday.

The man who meant so much to the Mets kept being traded or drafted away from the team. And actually could have been the latest in the line of Dodger greats.

And lest we forget, he was also one of my favorite announcers ever.

Four Things To Watch For On The Marlins This Month

 

Jake Marisnick plays tremendous defense out in center field but his bat has been far from impressive in his limited time in Miami this season.

Jake Marisnick plays tremendous defense out in center field but his bat has been far from impressive in his limited time in Miami this season.

Sam Evans ( Baseball Writer and Marlins, Mariners Correspondent):

It’s not exactly easy to get excited about the average Marlins game this late in the season.

With the Marlins struggling to give their pitchers any run support and finding seemingly different ways to lose everyday, it would be easy to give up on the Marlins and just wait for next year.

However, thanks to topics like Jose Fernandez‘s quest for the N.L. Rookie of the Year Award and lefty Brian Flynn‘s recent promotion, there still are reasons to watch the Marlins in 2013.

Here are what I consider to be the top four things to watch for on the Marlins in the final month of the regular season (in no particular order).

It is an ALL STAR GAME edition of Who Owned Baseball!

MVP Mariano Rivera pitched a perfect inning and had the entire stage to himself, giving the All Star Game its lasting memory for the night.

Prince Fielder legged out a triple in the 9th inning that delighted the crowd and probably gave his manager a heart attack.

Matt Harvey started the game and let the first two runners on. Then he bore down and retired the next 6 All Stars he faced.

And Paul Goldschmidt hit the National League’s lone extra base hit that gave the senior circuit some life in the 9th inning.

How Will This Years Home Run Derby Play Out At Citi Field?

Like us on Facebook here

Saturday July 13th, 2013 

This years annual Homerun Derby will be held during All-Star weekend at Citi Field. Like every year, four players from each league will compete to see who is the best Homerun hitter in the MLB right now. Prince Fielder will once again compete in the Derby looking to win in back-to-back years. The only difference is, this year he will compete with the American League instead of the National League like in previous years. We are definitely in for an exciting treat this year as we will get to see the likes of Prince Fielder, David Wright, Robinson Cano, Chris Davis, and several others compete to see who can hit the most homeruns.

By Dan Wanser (Baseball Writer): 

During this years All-Star break festivities that will take place at Citi Field, we will be lucky to see players such as Chris Davis, Prince Fielder,  David Wright, and  Robinson Cano take the field and try to hit as many Tater Trots as they can.

Players like Robinson Cano and Prince Fielder will look to add to their previous victories, as players like Chris Davis and Bryce Harper will look to make a name for themselves by being first time winners.

How will the different players do in this years State Farm Homerun Derby? Here’s my take:
