What does our reaction to Rick Ankiel tell us about our real thoughts about performance enhancing drugs? A lot.
That is the main topic for today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The 2014 season is quickly coming, and many people are putting together their yearly MLB Record predictions for both of the AL and NL.
One of the things people must remember to do, is to have their teams all equal 2430 wins. Since they are that many games in any given campaign (at least to start with before any cancellations are never played).
This is the 1st thing to look for.
Obviously every team should add to 162 games in the W – L columns of each squad.
Furthermore, you also have to account for the record in Interleague play between the AL in NL (this represents 290 games out of the 2430 game schedule.)
The AL and NL Records will also mirror reflect each other, as that determines a won – loss differential among the leagues.
If you played all games without interleague all teams would perfect match up even – even on the W-L when you added up all teams in the American League.
