For the last several years my buddy Josh Robbins and I have come up with ways to beat our individual world records for ballpark chasing.

My record is all 30 MLB Parks (every pitch) in just 23 Calendar Days.  I accomplished this feat in 2012.  You can read about that trip here.  After scouring the MLB Schedule for 2016, there is not even an attempt to try for the record this season.

Unless it changes, it will be another campaign I will sip (Gas Monkey Cinnamon Tequilla) as the world record holder for another year.

Never make decisions while in a spiteful mood. Why? Because it can cost you a Hall of Famer and potentially a pennant or two.

Just ask the Cardinals of the 1970s.

BUT I offer a compromise!

What are the Dodgers up to?

Is the team falling apart and letting the other NL West clubs, like San Francisco and Arizona, take over? Or are they building something that we can’t quite see right now but will be dominating.

It reminds me of Tony Stark in the cave during the first Iron Man movie. He built something powerful right under everyone’s noses and turned failure into victory.

Maybe that’s what the Dodgers are doing.

Avengers Assemble for this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
