It is time for Red Sox and Yankees! The rivalry is in a strange place right now but no doubt will pick up in intensity.

Also Jim Johnson is out as the closer and Tim Lincecum’s role is unclear.

Today is the sneakiest episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I went to Cashman Field in Las Vegas, wanting to record outside the home of the Las Vegas 51s.

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.
