A Masterpiece for Iwakuma!

This has been a let down of a season for the Seattle Mariners, but what a highlight for Iwakuma. The 5th no hitter in Seattle Mariners history and the first since the perfect game by Felix Hernandez in 2012.

It was also his first career complete game. It is a good thing they didn’t bring in Fernando Rodney for the 9th.

It is time to update my list!

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – August 12, 2015

1988-dodgers-parade-3-getty.0

The Dodgers have the longest pennant drought of any California team. The fact that they did not make the big move for 2015 makes no sense to me.

Plus I imagine how their history would be different had they kept Pedro and Piazza.

It is an I Love LA episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Lorenzo Cain, Yasiel Puig, Carlos Rodon, Madison Bumgarner, Chris Davis, Todd Frazier, Williams Perez and Bryan Mitchell all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball
