It is time for the SUNDAY REQUEST!

There are many things I would do in all sincerity. Most of my changes would simply revolve around justifying votes and the credentials of the voters.

Bill Mueller’s legacy among Red Sox fans has been short changed. Imagine how 2004 would have ended without him!

I wound up having a disagreement with a Red Sox fan named @commycon about that topic.

Plus I give the Mets faint praise for an OK deal.

It is a giving players their due on episode 1,005 for The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The A’s had 7 All Stars in 2014. After today’s deal of Scott Kazmir, only the injured Sean Doolittle is left.

The Astros made a smart deal to improve and the A’s did the right thing by selling at the peak value.

Also, I talk about gum throwing and styling at home after a grand slam.

First Texas cycle in 2 years!

Lots of people hit their cycles in Colorado. Choo is the latest. In fact his teammate Delino DeShields almost joined him if only he could have connected for a Coors homer himself.

Either way, it was safe to say that humidor or no humidor, it was a good night to hit in Colorado (except for the Rockies who were shutout, 9-0.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – 1000TH EPISODE! July 20, 2015

OKSURE

IT IS FINALLY EPISODE 1,000!

Every single day since October 24, 2012, I have posted an original podcast episode. And now the streak has reached quadruple digits.

For show 1,000, I recorded video as well as audio. I performed in front of a studio audience at the Mid Peninsula Community Media Center in Palo Alto, California.

Comcast Sports Net personality Eireann Dolan was my guest and we discussed the state of the A’s and some of the trinkets that she and her boyfriend, A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle, have accumulated over the years.

Plus I give my thoughts on what I would do WHEN I become commissioner. (When, not if.)

It was a fun show and here is to the next 1,000 for The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
