We live in a world where PewDiePie is a sensation. What does that mean for baseball?
Plus thoughts on the Selig Experience on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Dick Allen was kept out of the Hall of Fame by a single Veterans Committee vote.
That didn’t sit well with me nor with author Dan Epstein. The creator of such classic books as Big Hair and Plastic Grass and Stars and Strikes joined me to discuss Allen’s legacy.
It is an honor the past episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Do the Padres think they are on the verge of contending? Are they insane?
It is another San Diego based episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
White Sox fans had a bad start to their day seeing Dick Allen et al snubbed for the Hall of Fame.
Their day picked up when the team went on a shopping spree!
It is a South Side episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Veterans Committee failed to vote Dick Allen and Tony Oliva to the Hall of Fame by one vote.
That didn’t sit well with me on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Buster Olney wants to take a stand on the Hall of Fame vote. Really? Just cast a vote or not. It isn’t a brave stance.
Plus why you should be glad I’m NOT Jon Lester.
That and more on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Nobody cares if you report a trade or signing first. Meanwhile the Happ for Saunders deal is odd and why weren’t the Yankees in on Nick Markakis?
It is a first reported episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Josh Donaldson was traded? WHAT?
The A’s sent their MVP candidate for 4 players including 3 minor leaguers who could be great or could fizzle?
Forget the evergreen podcast I had ready to go.
This is an emergency episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast!
The Giants are moving on from Pablo Sandoval. And with the money they saved, they could fill a lot of holes and be back to the playoffs before you can say Joe Panik.
It is an out with the old and in with the new episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Driving to San Jose Airport, I struck up a conversation with my dad about Pablo Sandoval and whether or not he will end up with the Red Sox or Giants.
Why have a private conversation when you can turn it into a podcast?
It is father and son episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The brilliant Mike Nichols died the other day.
The maestro was so brilliant and prolific in his career that he would have been a legend even if he had never directed The Graduate, which was the Citizen Kane of comedies.
His career reminded me of Branch Rickey’s, who transformed baseball in ways that are still felt today and would have been one of its greatest pioneers even if he never broke the color barrier.
It is another strange comparison episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Marlins make a long term deal for Giancarlo Stanton to win over fans in the short term.
The Cardinals make a short term deal for Jason Heyward to keep fans for the long term.
It all makes sense.
Recorded from outside Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, it is the latest episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
I can not tell you for sure what is going to happen with Giancarlo Stanton’s career.
One thing I DO know is that in 13 years, he will NOT be a member of the Marlins.
That and other brave predictions of today’s Sully Baseball Daily Podcast
I propose a trade before the 2015 season between two broken down former MVPs owed $60 million.
The Yankees should trade A-Rod to the Phillies for Ryan Howard.
Which side turns down that trade?
Which side is burned?
Also MVP thoughts and Cy Young winner Corey Kluber is NOT an All Star on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
I believe the Cubs tampered to sign Joe Maddon.
I have knowledge that the Mets have lost their damn minds with the Michael Cuddyer signing.
It is a discussion of belief versus knowledge in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The game of baseball is in decline right? Loved hearing that yet once again from every non-baseball fan. I tend not to disagree, but to think that no changes going forward is the right call is entirely wrong.
With Bud Selig making his grand exit in 2 months, Rob Manfred has a daunting task of capturing the new age fan, while the core audience grows a little older next year.
Here at the Report we have suggested some radical thought-provoking topics towards how baseball can improve, so I thought I would put them all in one article.
This list coming forth is a compilation of our top personalities – and their stances towards how the game can improve.
In this blog, I am using a lot of (Paul Francis Sullivan) Sully’s ideas. He is our lead personality on this site, and has the pulse of all sorts of historical and new age references that make sense.
Listen/Subscribe to his daily podcast The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
We will also use some of our Owner/Lead Analyst’s (Chuck Booth) views to add to the puzzle.
Finally, the list is completed by yours truly. Read the rest of this entry
Let’s not create fake controversies, shall we?
Alex Rodriguez paid off his cousin to not talk about steroids? Is that supposed to shock us?
And please stop any talk that Mike Jirschele should have sent Alex Gordon home with 2 outs in the 9th inning of Game 7 of the World Series. Gordon would have been out by 20 feet.
It is a manufactured controversies episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Toronto Blue Jays are looking at the 2015 season and are at a crossroad.
Should they cut bait and rebuild? Or can they try and end the longest post season drought and take advantage of the vulnerable Yankees, Red Sox and Rays?
It is a North of the Border episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is October 31, and there can be no scarier costume to wear in Kansas City than Madison Bumgarner.
His post season was remarkable of course. Emotionally, it also mirrored what Bob Gibson did in 1968.
Recorded in front of the house from Halloween, it is the Halloween episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Game 7 of the 2014 World Series was a thriller.
Bumgarner dominated. Affeldt was terrific. Gordon nearly pulled off the comeback and the Chevy Guy might be a viral marketing prank.
Lots to talk about regarding the last game of the year on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Bumgarner and Hunter Pence had the highest WOWS total.
Bumgarner and Lorenzo Cain had the highest WOO total.
Well, Game 6 was a bust.
The Royals blew out the Giants early and handily.
Now it is all on the line tonight. The last game of the season. Game 7. Who will be associated with this game and the year forever more?
It is the end of the baseball season forecasted on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Tonight is Game 6 of the World Series.
Those words can bring up so many different memories. Who will be the Reggie Jackson, Carlton Fisk, Don Denkinger, Bill Buckner, Kirby Puckett, Joe Carter, Tom Glavine, Josh Beckett, David Freese or Nelson Cruz of the night?
Meanwhile I all but beg Joe Maddon to take over the Dodgers.
It could be a memorable night that is previewed on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
