He did so on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Yunel Escobar, Juan Uribe, Roenis Elias Juan Nicasio, Omar Infante and Gaby Sanchez all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

The Top 5 Home Run Hitters AL/NL in 2014, HR Streaks (3 Active) + Multi HR Games: Markakis Smacks 2 + Miami On Fire

The HR contraption that is the CF wall in MIA.  Could the club be relaying signals from opposing catchers by having the fish illuminate during play at New Marlins Ball Park.  "Oh Bull Durham" on that.

The HR contraption that is the CF wall in MIA. Could the club be relaying signals from opposing catchers by having the fish illuminate during play at New Marlins Ball Park. “Oh Bull Durham” on that.  The huge device goes spiraling around once a Marlins jacks a ball that goes over the wall for a Homer.  While the 1st 2 years the device never saw much action, it is being worn out by Miami this year.  This has teams like Atlanta speculating on some “TomFoolery.”

The Braves had themselves a weird 3 game set in Miami, where they lost 3 games, gave up 23 runs, and have accused the Marlins of stealing signs for pitches.

It is a weird phenomenon how devastating the Miami squad has bashed at New Marlins Ballpark, but for young guys on their team to figure out cadences and relays from the Braves backstoppers is a little bit too far fetched,

I love how the Home Run monstrosity in CF may be the culprit of sending the secret codes out to the hitters.

Miami has added several (3TO guys this year like Garrett Jones and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.)  3TO stands for 3 True Outs, either via a BB/SO or you round the Bases without having the ball touch the field inside the playing surface.

Also, Florida has been one of the only places not to be plagued by weather in the MLB.  Bash on Miami, you are an entertaining team to watch – and have joined your 4 other teams in the NL East at .500 or better – at least for one day. Read the rest of this entry

Yunel Escobar hit a tie breaking, 9th inning homer off of the seemingly impervious Koji Uehara to give the Rays a 6-5 win and a double header sweep in Boston.

Juan Uribe combined to get on base 8 times over the course of the Dodgers double header sweep of the Twins. He doubled and drove in a pair in the 9-4 opener. He hit a game tying single in the 4-3 12 inning nightcap.

Roenis Elias shut down the Yankees offense with 7 innings, 6 hits and 1 earned run. He struck out 10 along the way to a Seattle 4-2 victory in the Bronx.

Juan Nicasio pitched 7 shutout innings (in Coors no less), holding the Mets to 3 hits and one walk as the Rockies won 7-4.

They owned baseball on May.01, 2014.
