It is time for The Sunday Request on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
@sullybaseball how about the fact that the Giants have taken a beating & they’re still the best team? The very real chance of BayBridge WS?

A’s and Giants could very well meet in October. There is no reason to think they couldn’t… and it would be a great continuing of past traditions and missed opportunities.
That and more on on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

In lieu of doing the Power rankings today, in which we just completed our Monthly rankings a few days ago, here are the current odds to win the World Series.
These kind of work as a defacto slotting of positions in their own right.
I had a full .500 of predicting last weeks totals in best bets. Toronto’s big streak of 9 games were the big culprits of this affair to my demise. They have jumped all the way to +1600, and are the top favorite out of the AL East.
If you are a New York Yankees fan or Boston Red Sox Nation subscriber, and think your squad could win the Fall Classic each, pounce on this weeks odds. At +2000 and +2200 respectively, they are the highest they have been all year for the Eastern Seaboard clubs.
Boston has reeled of 6 wins in a row following their 10 game swan dive, and New York is only 2.5 Games Behind Toronto.
Honestly as the teams are constructed right now, I am all in favor of picking the Jays, but there is one problem. If the ‘Pinstripers’ are in contention a month from now, Brian Cashman will be handed an influx of cash to dole out in forms of trades.
Toronto is over the payroll they want to be at for the campaign, although they might be able to add a Starter as said by the brass, “if the club is playing well.”.
Boston just inked Stephen Drew back, and they have some Benjamin Franklin’s in reserve somewhere if they want to throw some down, just not sure they will do so. Read the rest of this entry
Yoenis Cespedes was a single shy of the cycle. He hit a go ahead triple in the 7th, blasted a game busting 3 run homer in the 8th and threw out a pair of runners at the plate, doing it all in the A’s 11-3 thumping of the Angels.
Hanley Ramirez went 4-5 with a pair of homers, 5 RBI and 4 runs scored, helping the Dodgers blow out Pittsburgh 12-2.
Masahiro Tanaka did not let up an earned run over 8 innings, giving up just 4 hits and struck out 9 Twins, picking up his 8th win for the Yankees, 3-1.
Johnny Cueto threw shutout ball into the 8th inning. He finished with 7 1/3 innings with 7 strikeouts and 1 walk leading the Reds to a 5-0 win in Arizona.
