Today, along with the audio that as always can be found on Soundcloud and iTunes, I did a video podcast to mark the occasion.

I looked at the concept of baseball nostalgia and realized that everything is trying to celebrate the late 1940’s. Why should post WWII monopolize traditional baseball?

I couldn’t find my car. I had no idea where I parked it. So as I wondered around a parking lot late at night, I tried to remember the 1987 Twins and 1988 Dodgers and praised the powers that be for signing a new CBA.

I remembered all the 87 Twins and 88 Dodgers except for George Frazier on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

It is Sunday and time for the Sunday Request.

No way. No f—ing way. Yeah, I know good things happened on his watch. But he also was involved with one of the most shameful episode in the history of baseball.

I am not talking about steroids or the strike.

One word: Collusion.

I am thinking about the good of the game on episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Well… Bud Selig is in the Hall of Fame. And with his election, my reverence for the honor Hall of Famers get has been a little diminished.

Let’s not do TOO much revisionist history on episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Indians could be making a run for Edwin Encarnacion. Do you know why? Because every other team in their division is rebuilding.

That and the Giants are signing a closer long term which is never smart on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Chris Sale was dealt to the Red Sox from the White Sox… and oddly it could make a lot of sense for both teams.

The Red Sox are trying to win now and got him without bteaking up their young outfield.

The White Sox need quality AND quantity in their farm and Sale’s value is at its peak.

Socks are changed and bad puns are made on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Cubs brought in Wade Davis, who will be the closer for the defending World Champions for the second straight year.

If he clinches a post season series in Chicago, he will join a select fraternity in terms pitchers for 2 different franchises.

It looks like Koji Uehara is heading to the Cubs. They will have three pitchers who have clinched a World Series title out of the pen.

Why not try to get more?

It is time to celebrate and clinch in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The next few years will not feature a lot of wins for your team and LOTS for the Cubs. But if you stay loyal to your team, the amazing rebuilding process by the GM will reward you soon.

Good things happen to those who wait on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I visited the Polo Grounds Towers, once the home of the Giants and the epicenter of New York baseball.

Now it is an apartment complex and the baseball palace is right across the river. How did that happen?

My final stop on my New York voyage is New Yankee Stadium. I realized that the hugeness and coldness of the stadium makes sense when you consider the pressure of carrying the Yankee label.

But across the street is the place where MOST of the glory took place. It made me bring up an Alexandre Dumas novel.

Ghosts and memories are everywhere on this episode of  The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I made a snarky remark… and as it turned out, I was wrong. And I am stunned I was wrong about this topic. I still am.

But it goes to show the value of never thinking you know everything.

The Raiders are trying to squeeze hundreds of millions of dollars out of Oakland for a new stadium. Why does Oakland bend over backwards for the Raiders and not the A’s?

And the A’s should think of breaking up with Oakland.

Clay Buchholz is no longer a member of the Red Sox, and thus ends a complicated tenure that should be at least saluted.

It might be time for baseball to think about expansion again. But while the usual suspects of cities are still in contention for a new team, an article by J. P Morosi brought up an interesting location: Austin.

While waiting for a plane at the Bob Hope Airport, or whatever it is called now, I wondered about expansion and relocation. I saw how LA football reflected Tampa Bay baseball and perhaps another team could work in New England.

On today’s episode, I am posting part 2 of my conversation with former Detroit Tigers outfielder Larry Herndon.

He talked about key moments of the 1984 and 1987 post season years in Detroit including the moment he caught the final out to clinch the World Series.

It is Christmas Day. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

And it is also time for The Sunday Request.

 

In a vacuum, I would not make this signing for Encarnacion. But this deal was made for 2017 and 2018 alone, and one extra year isn’t so bad.

A nice present is under the tree for Cleveland fans on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

As the holidays pile up, I wish I could go to a ballgame. I will do the next best thing.

For my birthday, I went to a ballgame at AT&T Park with podcast superfan Marcel, aka @CU8SFAN (Cubs Fan with an 8.)

That podcast can be heard HERE.

Well, there was part of the recording I did NOT use and make it a new episode for you all. @cu8sfan and I talked about Cap Bingo and other things.

So take yourself out to the ballgame this December on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
