Or what about match up between original franchises that we have never seen?

Newsflash! Pablo Sandoval is not a thin man.

Maybe Red Sox fans should have made a mental note of that before freaking out after Steve Silva of Boston.com posted the picture seen above.

Also, evidently, Yankee fans did not cheer when A-Rod homered in the 2009 post season. Who knew?

That and other surprising facts on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

10 years ago, Jason Giambi gave one of the strangest press conferences in baseball history. Even though I am a Red Sox fan, I found the surreal presser to be oddly endearing and sympathetic and made me see Giambi for what he was: A big dumb lovable lug.

Meanwhile today, A-Rod is apologizing to the Yankees, who SHOULD be welcoming him with open arms.

Over in Boston, their outfield is crowded as hell. Don’t worry. Time will sort it out.

East Coast Bias? Maybe for today on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

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.
