Joe Girardi and other managers like to manage by the book. Sometimes they do so to an insane measure.

What book SHOULD they be managing by? How about Baseball is a Funny Game by Joe Garagiola?

There is wisdom in that book that maybe could help give pitchers a little more confidence moving forward. I explain on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Is Fox Sports still not willing to talk about “dead guys” because of a 1990′s mentality? Time to break that.

Baseball takes place in the past, present and future all at the same time. That sentence makes sense to me.

It is a respect the future and past episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Every MLB ASG Going Fwd Should Have A Tribute To Those Fallen In Previous Year: A Comment On Sully Baseball’s Blog

Paul Sullivan’s   brilliant tribute video – They should hire him to do one of these every year!

MLB Reports Lead Personality ‘Sully’ did a fantastic job of writing an article about the way FOX did not give any acknowledgement towards Tony Gwynn during Tuesday’s ALL – Star Game on a post for his own website. I was going to write a similar article, but he nailed it perfectly, and you should read it here

My 2 cents:   

The MLB has had several baseball men die in the last year:  Ralph Kiner, Tony Gwynn, Bob Welch, Don Zimmer, Jim Fregosi, Jerry Coleman, and former executive (MLBPA president) Michael Weiner.

I think it would be a great job by baseball – if they were to add a segment to the ALL – Star Game, in which they pay homage to the heroes of yesteryear. Read the rest of this entry

The A’s and the Cubs clearly didn’t treat the 4th of July like a holiday. They pulled off a stunning blockbuster that sent Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for some of their top young players and Dan Straily, a fan favorite of one of my dear friends.

Does this sound like a day to put on an evergreen podcast?

Tim Lincecum is one of the most loved sports figures in San Francisco history. And the things he is putting on his resume are usually reserved for Hall of Famers. What will Lincecum’s legacy be?

He very well may have a similar legend as another pitcher who is beloved in Southern California.

So for a little bit of nostalgia, I add an installment of a previous segment we once had, called ATR (Ask The Reports).

Q:  I noticed you pulled down the HR leaderboard pages and placed them on a website called www.30mlbteamsreports.com, is this the same ownership of that site?

CB:  Absolutely, I purchased the domain www.30mlbteamsreports.com  to help control some of the amount of stuff we post at http://www.mlbreports.com.  In some cases, we will post some of our work on both websites from now on. Read the rest of this entry

The Arizona Diamondbacks are a disgrace of an organization. They are “fake tough” and showed yesterday that winning is not priority number one.
