In a vacuum, the Derek Jeter – Gatorade commercial was great. It is just getting to be a little bit of overkill!

Plus, Mike Scioscia can put any lineup on the field he wants. His team clinched. He owes no team a playoff spot but his own.

I would hate for last night’s loss to be Koji Uehara‘s last game with the Red Sox… but it might be.

Closer’s flame out and Koji looks like no exception. Remember, he was never meant to be a long term solution.

Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast. is a direct response to a Twitter follower.

I gave Who Owned Baseball to Julio Teheran over Adam Wainwright. Not everyone agreed.

It was a tough call. But the main difference was the fact that Teheran pitched against a first place Milwaukee team and Wainwright pitched against a horrible Diamondbacks squad.

Chris Davis, Hisashi Iwakuma, Dernard Span, Julio Teheran, Garrett Jones, Jonny Gomes and NOT Adam Wainwright all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball

Johnny Manziel is the latest hope for Cleveland fans. But 2 and a half decades ago, the arrival of Sandy Alomar helped create a new identity for the Indians that almost took the pressure off of every single Cleveland team afterwards.

Plus Royals manager Ned Yost might be out of a job soon.

On today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast, I take a quick glimpse at the Face of Baseball off season competition.

It doesn’t really interest me, but some people are really getting into it. I support anything that gets people talking about baseball in the off season. But I also believe it illustrates the need to start the season with the All Star Game.

Big league baseball is going to be expanding use of instant replay.

It will take no reviewing from me to see that this is a terrific things for baseball. Will it fix EVERYTHING all at once?

Of course not. But it is progress.

With Masahiro Tanaka posting soon, there will be a feeding frenzy for the services of a pitcher who has yet to pitch in the majors.

The Yankees, Mariners and Cubs will be desperate for him.

The Rangers and Dodgers would probably be the best landing spot for him.

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.

Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast is the second part of my conversation with A’s relief pitcher Sean Doolittle.

I took questions from some of my Oakland A’s fan friends and passed them along to Sean.

And along the way, we got to the bottom of the meaning of a unicorn and the identity of a juggler. It all makes sense.
