Professional baseball is rife with legends and ciphers that have popped up over the years. Although most of them may not reach the level of a Sidd Finch, there have been many whose stories have vacillated between the humorous and the tragic.

Bugs Raymond was an outstanding pitcher who fits into both categories; whose escapades that became legendary even as he battled alcoholism and wound up murdered at the age of 30.


The Curious Case Of ‘Mets Thrower’ Josh Smoker

With two spots open in the bullpen, Josh Smoker is hoping he can prove his worth and snag a spot on the big league roster. But what makes his story interesting is not that he hits 97 mph on the gun at spring training, but rather the events that took place to get him there.

Smoker was a former #1 draft pick for the Washington Nationals, but injuries would lead to shoulder surgeries and eventually his release from the team in 2012.

After playing for the Frontier League in 2014, and proving his shoulder was better than before, MLB teams were still not interested enough to take a look at Josh and retirement seemed on the horizon.


Father And Son Milwaukee Brewers Connection – Eric Young And Eric Young Jr.

On January 5, 2016, Eric Young Jr. quietly signed a contract with the Milwaukee Brewers with an invitation to spring training in the big-league camp. 

I say quietly because most reporters gave the signing an obligatory two or three paragraph article after it was first mentioned December 31, and finalized a few days later. 

Of course there is more to this signing than meets the eye since his father once played for the Brewers.  So today on the blog I’d like to provide a bit more depth and backstory than has been reported so far.  

To tell Junior’s story, first let’s go back and take a look at his father’s story and stint with the Brewers.  

Eric Young, or ‘EY’ as he was nicknamed and will be referred to going forward, had a pretty good career in the big leagues and played for 15 seasons all told.  He was born in Brunswick, New Jersey, and stuck around to play both baseball and football at Rutgers. 

EY decided to pursue a career in baseball and was drafted in the 43rd round of the 1989 draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Yup, you read that right – the 43rd round.


Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – March 14, 2016


Today, I went to a pub in London called Glasshouse Stores, and met Mark Blakemore, a die hard fan of the show.

We enjoyed a pint, talked a little baseball and wondered how a guy from England could become a Yankee fan.

It is a night with two mates episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
