A few weeks ago, writer and performer Michael Bernard was my guest on the podcast, talking about the show he wrote and helped create, “Baseball Swing with the All Star Baseball Jazz Band.”

Well, our conversation kept going and we remembered what it was like living in New York as Red Sox fans during the peak of the rivalry, 2003 and 2004.

That part of the conversation is today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

This should turn out to be quite fun.  A lot of gambling establishments have this sort of deal, and it will be fun to see the results.

What Runs Survivor is, a MLB team scoring 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations.  We are going to keep tracking this category – until all 30 MLB clubs are finished this season!

Last night, both of the Marlins and Cards finished the task.  As far as seeding goes – who goes 7th and 8th place in the finishing, I gave the nod to Miami because they accomplished the feat in 29 games – compared to 30 contests for the reigning NL Champs.

The Fish continue to play inspired baseball at New Marlins Ballpark, running their record to an impressive 13 – 4, while the record on the road remains a brutal 2 – 10.

The Cards on the other hand, nailed down their 11 different run variation amidst a 6 – 5 loss to the lowly Cubs.  Adam Wainwright actually was touched up in the game – after running an excellent string of 25 frames consecutive without allowing a run scored. Read the rest of this entry

The Top 5 Home Run Hitters AL/NL in 2014, HR Streaks (6 Active) + Multi HR Games

Desmond Jennings was counted on to fill the void left by B.J. Upton when he took over the CF position in 2013.  It wasn't a banner year.  With him hitting a HR for the 2nd straight game, it vaulted the Rays to a 3 game winning Streak.  2014 has been a kinder campaign to the 27 Year Old originally from Birmingham, AL - as he has slashed .277/.378/.463 - with 16 Walks, 6 SB and 16 Runs Scored in his 28 Games Played.  That is great production for the 5 year Veteran.

It wasn’t a banner year – although he still stole 20 bags and scored 82 Runs – with a .748 OPs.. With him hitting a HR for the 2nd straight game in a 10 – 5 14 Inning marathon tilt versus the Yankees, it vaulted the Rays to a 3 game winning Streak. 2014 has been a kinder campaign to the 27 Year Old originally from Birmingham, AL – as he has slashed .277/.378/.463 – with 16 Walks, 6 SB and 16 Runs Scored in his 28 Games Played.

Last night we had a nice complement of big flies – so that we have 6 streaks active going into today’s play.

There is one Carlos Gonzalez who is still active on his HR streak, but is out of the Rox lineup.

We have not had a multiple HR game since last Sunday when Jhonny Peralta went yard twice.  That Cards SS went deep last night, joining Mike Morse, and a bevy of other NL hitters tied for 5th place with 7 HRs.

Other movers were Nelson Cruz grabbed a share of third place by smacking his 8th HR – and Jose Abreu clubbed his 11th HR to open up a 2 Tater lead on Albert Pujols. Read the rest of this entry
