Happy New Year and it is time for The Sunday Request.

For a question like this, I could not just make idle speculation. I needed to create a new statistic.

So, as demonstrated in this new Video Podcast, I created THE SUFFERING INDEX, designed to quantify numerically and mathematically which fan base is suffering the most.

But even these calculations found a few gray areas.

Wake up to a new year of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

While at the Pacific Pinball Museum, I thought about some of the most dramatic foul balls of all time.

Some of them could have changed the course of baseball history.

Curt Schilling and I may not see eye to eye on many things. But I do think his Hall of Fame candidacy should be debated and his politics should stay out of it.

Opinions versus stats are debated on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The wonderful comedian Kevin Maher, creator of Kevin Geeks Out, joins the podcast to discuss the horrible and so bad you can not look away 1978 baseball comedy Here Come The Tigers, a shameless, heartless and joyless rip off of the classic film, The Bad News Bears.

There is lots of bad to talk about in this failed family picture whose director would go on to make Friday the 13th… no really.

The football playoffs are starting and there are some playoff teams who do not have a single player I can name.

But I always watch the NFL in January and I do so through a baseball prism.

I would like to see a Padres and A’s World Series. Do you know why? Because California is filled with all sorts of regional insecurities and this would be a great face off for two cities with an inferiority complex.

It is a World Series about Identities with a West Coast Bias episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

There are no Colorado Rockies in the Hall of Fame. I suggested they trade for Ichiro Suzuki to ensure one player will have worn the CR on their hat and made it to Cooperstown.

But Larry Walker and Todd Helton might put a beloved Rockie in the Hall.

Spent a great few days with my dad, but we both wished there was a baseball game on.

Baseball acts as a constant friend who is reliable. For me, it is an indicator that things are going to be ok.

It is Friday the 13th, a day that brings up issues of luck and good fortune. Some players had horrible luck. Others had obscenely good luck.

Wil Myers looks like he is sticking around in San Diego. The Padres might play in a pitchers park but some hitters found their mojo in Petco Park.

It is time for The SUNDAY REQUEST.

It is hard to make the argument that the region is giving great support to two teams when one of them is always threatening to move because of lack of support!

Besides, supporting two franchises is hard for any city not named New York.

The Rangers need to shore up their team to win a title this decade. But forget hitters. You can get hitters any time. They need to make offers to EVERY available free agent pitcher.

Sunday, we learned about the tragic deaths of Yordano Ventura and Andy Marte. These were two lives cut short and two very different careers ended in the worst way.

Meanwhile, an awful Tweet by a fan about the death of Ventura made me realize we need to do small things to make this experience of living a little better.

The Dodgers have a window of opportunity to win the World Series. They have some of the big building blocks in place.

But this has been a strange off season where they have been big spender to essentially stand pat.

Was Rich Gossage the greatest reliever of all time? He is certainly in the conversation. But if one tiny thing had changed in his Hall of Fame career,  we’d think of him much differently.

It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

Cabrera and Pujols are both going to the Hall of Fame. Right now as the best offensive player of their generation, they could be neck and neck.

And a Trout is swimming up to them!

With the Cubs off the hook from their suffering fans, the Houston Astros must now be considered one of the most tortured fan bases in baseball.

A closer examination at their post season past shows a huge number of games that could have been theirs with a bounce here or there.
