This is Episode Number 700 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Baseball can adapt not only to the digital age but learn the lessons that the movie industry eventually learned about home video.
Bud Selig is out and Rob Manfred is in as commissioner of baseball.
What is Bud Selig’s legacy?
What should Rob Manfred’s focus be on?
And how do I tie it into the VHS release of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
It all makes sense on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is time for The Sunday Request on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

If Bud Selig wants a long term legacy, he will throw away anything that resembles blackout rules and have baseball be the sport of the 21st century.
But why do THAT when you can try to get big time TV contracts?
That and more on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast previews the Red Sox/Yankees series, talks about A-Rod and wonders how his reputation could possibly be lower.
Then I play a video game and suddenly understand steroid users a little better.

While at the Genius Bar at the Apple Store, I observed people using tablets, devices and iPhones. And I didn’t just see the future of technology. I saw the future of baseball.
I break down this vision of the future today, on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

All of us hardcore fans have seen the MLB Fan Cave for the last few years. Heck, if it wasn’t for the MLB accepting applications for the Season 1 – I personally would have never joined Twitter, interacted with winners Mike O’ Hara and Ryan, before eventually meeting the MLB Reports Founder (Jonathan Hacohen) through conversing with those guys over my baseball travel book. Jonathan did a book review for me, then asked me to guest blog for him during the 2012 World Series. 1 year and half later, I bought the website, meanwhile our site has continued a friendship with the Cave Dwellers from the 1st 2 seasons. Last year, we interviewed Eddie Mata – and did a follow up story with Mike O ‘ Hara on life after the Cave.
A few months ago, I came across a genuine fan of the LA Dodgers and baseball in general. Thomas (Aaron) Roberts has since been our Dodgers Correspondent here. I can tell you that the man loves baseball and anything to do with it. I never even knew he applied for the MLB Fan Cave in 2013, then last week he sent me a link that he was a top 52 finalist.
This is no small feat and any of us would love to be in Roberts shoes. I will do anything within my power to help him along, because he is a deserving person to be sent to New York. Just by watching his video entry, it is abundantly clear that he belongs at the Fan Cave. So please click the link and then after viewing, read the interview I conducted with Thomas (Aaron) Roberts afterwards.

Sam Evans (Baseball Writer):
The Mariners made a decision regarding the dimensions of Safeco Field in October that will likely change the way the Mariners front office will attempt to put a potent baseball team on the field. By bringing in the fences, the Mariners are symbolizing that they have moved on from the early Jack Zdurencik philosophy that the Mariners could win in Safeco Field with pitching in defense. This move could entice some free agent position players that normally would not want to play in such a hard ballpark to hit home runs in. By moving the fences iTTn at Safeco, more runs will be scored at Safeco and the Mariners will likely no longer play in debatably the most pitcher-friendly park in the American League.
It’s pretty easy to see why the Mariners organization has finally decided to move in the fences at Safeco. Since 2000, the Mariners have scored the fewest runs of any American League team. In 2012, Seattle ranked last in the AL in runs scored per game, home runs, and batting average at home. The Mariners were a far better team on the road then at home. Right-handed hitters like Jesus Montero and Casper Wells had their power numbers and projections greatly affected by spending their first full seasons in Seattle. The Mariners had their reasons for moving their fences, and if they believe the new dimensions will help them win more ballgames, there should be no argument that Seattle is not making the right move.
