MLB reports and The Benchwarmers Show present 2 and A Hook Podcast.

People in this Podcast:

Chuck Booth – Guest (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner):

By James Acevedo – Host (Podcast Veteran) 

‘2 And A Hook’ is an expression from Baseball:  ‘Throw the guy 2 Fast balls and then a Hook’ (AKA Curve Ball, Wiggly one, Chair etc..)

On today’s show, brought to you by MLB Reports (www.mlbreports.com ) & yours truly (The Bench Warmers Show), I had Chuck Booth talk for over an hour about a  bunch of topics.

We started off with the horrible season the Toronto Blue Jays have had thus far.  We also talked about the Angels, what Robin Ventura is thinking – hitting Adam Dunn #4 still and how the Braves must regret paying B.J. Upton $15 MIL a year – while they are ecstatic about paying Justin Upton only about half of that. Read the rest of this entry

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – May 2, 2013

I recorded yet another The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast at AT&T Park.

It is the most beautiful ballpark in baseball where they honor many of the great players in their history. They should have a statue for Barry Bonds there.

Clay Buchholz, Lorenzo Cain, Jordan Zimmermann and Brandon Belt owned baseball on May 1, 2013.

Who Owns Baseball – Updated May.02/2013

Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 7.29.00 AM

Clay Buchholz pitched 7 shutout innings, striking out 8 and collected his sixth win as the first place Red Sox man handled the Blue Jays 10-1.

The Kansas City Royals came from behind to beat the Tampa Bay Rays and took over first place thanks in part to Lorenzo Cain‘s 2-5 two RBI performance.

Brandon Belt‘s dramatic two out, two strike, 8th inning three run homer helped turn a Giants loss into a victory over Arizona.

And Washington’s Jordan Zimmermann dominated division rival Atlanta with 8 shutout innings, letting up only 2 hits, no walks and 8 strikeouts as the Nats squeaked by 2-0.

They all owned baseball on May 01, 2013

At the end of the year, we will tally up who owned baseball the most individual days and see how it compares to the final MVP and Cy Young vote.

No Kyle Lohse In St. Louis – No Problem: Young Pitchers Are Thriving For The Cardinals

The Cardinals entered Spring Training in 2013 with an open spot for their fifth starter. Shelby Miller took full advantage of the opportunity, posting a record of 2-0 and an ERA of 3.94 in 16.0 IP. The Cardinals are definitely looking toward the future with Miller. At just 22 years of age, he is currently their fifth starter, but has the potential to become the ace of the staff in the matter of a couple of years.

If you are interested to know why the Cardinals would be so quick to let their best starter from 2012, Kyle Lohse  just walk away to a division rival, you might be interested in this article.  

The Cardinals made it very clear when the 2012 season ended that it was unlikely that Kyle Lohse would return to a Cardinal uniform in 2013.

 In a year that had Chris Carpenter sitting for an injury and Adam Wainwright in his first year back from Tommy John Surgery, Kyle Lohse emerged in 2012 as the ace of the Cardinals pitching staff.  He led the team with a (16-3) record and a 2.86 ERA.

But in the offseason, Lohse hit the Free Agent market asking for a hefty amount of cash.  The Cardinals simply were not willing to pay that price.  Why, you ask?  Because the Cardinals ownership have restructured their Minor League affiliates over the years and are loaded with pitching prospects.

Shelby Miller’s dominant outing against Kyle Lohse and the Brewers:
