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.
Last night’s game was so strange that I feel like we saw 3 different games.
It was like a Tarantino film. I am not convinced it was shown in chronological order.
It is the Game 4 of the World Series episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Yusmeiro Petit, Hunter Pence and Salvador Perez all owned October and the World Series last night.

Okay..It has been a trying month here at the MLB Reports..Damaged electronics, power outages, I moved (while working every single day) – and all of this in the eye of the Postseason. But we are finally 100% back, and all systems at go.
First off, I wanted to acknowledge Sully for his incredible work on his 20 minute daily podcast, and his ironman streak for a couple of different things.
Sully has done a brand new podcast every day for 732 days straight. That is incredible to say the least. We are ecstatic to have partnered with him for all but about 3 months of that time. If you don’t currently listening to it, you are missing out.
Paul Sullivan “Sully” is a walking historical book on the game of baseball, but he presents it in a way that anyone can be a fan of the game.
My girlfriend can even easily spend 20 minutes a day downloading his show on Soundcloud, because he makes it easy to follow – and entertaining.
He doesn’t beat you over the head with stats and spends a lot of time telling stories on the narrative, or just his personal views.. It is a gift to be able to translate the game to any specter of age or gender in audio fashion for 20 minutes a day.

Another thing Sully does, is watch every single game of the 2430 game regular season schedule, and all of the playoffs.
At the completion of the 2014 Postseason, he will have listed a daily MVP for the AL and NL Games for 2 years straight as well.
Much like his podcast, he posts these articles every day there was baseball the previous day of action.
You are talking about 200+ more posts per year. The guy doesn’t miss a day. That kind of devotion is and will become even more legendary as the season’s pile up.
Thank you Sully, looking forward to many more years of featuring your work on our website.
So because Paul Sullivan does these baseball posts every day, we are guaranteed at least an article of the Daily MVP, and also his podcast.
For those of you who have been lucky enough to become a follower, spread the word out there so we can make this daily show a huge paying gig for Sully one day. Read the rest of this entry
I had never been to a World Series game in my life.
Neither had my dad, a lifelong Giants fan.
We went to Game 3 of the World Series together. I tried my best to share the experience of being at the game last night
It is fathers and son episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
I needed a new Giants hat for Game 3 of the World Series, which your pal Sully will be attending. So I went to the Giants dugout store and picked out a winner.
Afterwards I had some thoughts about Game 2 and maybe not using Hunter Strickland any more.
Plus, I did NOT get this ugly hat!
It is a going shopping episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Omar Infante, Kelvin Herrera and Gregor Blanco all Owned the World Series and October
Every team that made the playoffs has heart
Every team that made the playoffs has desire.
Every team that made the playoffs has a sense of camaraderie.
At this point at the eve of the World Series, making predictions is futile. It is all coming down to chance.
It is a recorded in the parking lot of Trader Joe’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
I credit the recent success of the Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants to my wife.
Plus some people are already trashing this World Series match up. We have had some dud World Series before. Give the Giants and Royals some credit.
It is a thank the Mrs. episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Why do the Royals remind me of The Cosby Show and Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
It makes sense to me.
It is a stopping and starting episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Ho hum… another mind boggling, jaw dropping, heart stopping, head scratching historic playoff game in 2014.
Travis Ishikawa joins an elite crew…
And Mike Matheny might have managed himself right out of St. Louis.
It is a night of baseball I will never forget and I celebrate on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Fox Sports 1 did some creative work in their broadcast of the NLCS last night. It shows that maybe some different thinking can be used in showing baseball as MLB embraces the digital age.
It is a thinking outside of the Idiot Box episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
