A Letter To Vin Scully

Dear Vin Scully,

Congratulations on your upcoming retirement. You are the greatest. Your voice, your stories, your knowledge and love of the game is unmatched by anyone in the history of baseball.

I didn’t grow up a Dodgers fan, but yet I still loved listening to you. Never before had I heard someone know so much about every player, including the guy at the end of the bench on the visiting team.  You connected fans to the game and the players in a way that I didn’t think was possible.

Vin Scully’s Final Game Is Coming

By Josh:

Yesterday Vin Scully officially announced that his final game calling baseball will be October 2nd. Even if the Dodgers make the playoffs he is not going to call any of those games.  I have to be honest this makes me pretty sad and honestly as I sit here trying to figure out what to write my thoughts are so scattered because of what Vin’s retirement means for fans and for baseball.

Ivan Nova: The Latest Pirates’ Prosperous Project

Ivan Nova’s trade to the Pittsburgh Pirates at this year’s deadline failed to attract many headlines among the deluge of significant deals completed on the 1st of August. Yet Nova’s performances since arriving in Pittsburgh have brought an under the radar trade firmly into the spotlight. Whilst the Pirates’ playoffs hopes look to have been muted, sitting 6 games back of the 2nd NL wildcard spot, Nova’s performances lend hope to a possible revival of fortunes in 2017. In 7 starts in a Pirates uniform Nova has posted an impressive 5-0 record with a 3.00 ERA, 3.02 FIP and average gamescore (v2) of 62.

Compare that to Nova’s first half of the season in New York as a starter (Nova made 6 relief appearances between April 6th and May 1st) and the apparent improvement since the trade is drastic:

     Starts Wins ERA FIP GSv2 BABIP HR/FB
Yankees 15 6 5.15 5.54 46 .294 22.60%
Pirates 7 5 3.00 3.02 62 .274 10.61%

During the second half of the season Nova ranks 14th in the Majors in ERA, 42nd in FIP and 40th in WAR, trailing only Jameson Taillon for the Pirates in the last two categories.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – September 14, 2016


I had an exchange on Twitter with a listener that did not go well.


Instead of fighting, I stood in his shoes and realized the two teams I am rooting for, the Red Sox and the Giants, are the two contenders with the least amount of urgency in baseball.

So @AllenSpeir … please accept my olive branch. I seek peace, not fighting.

It is an attempt to mend fences episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.


Taijuan Walker, Jorge Polanco, Noah Syndergaard, T. J. Rivera, Danny Duffy, Gorkys Hernandez and Jose Altuve all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.
