Merry Christmas to my Sully Baseball followers. Whether you celebrate the holiday or not, I am giving a gift to you all…

Is there a fan base whose fans are more loyal and shown more dedication than the Miami Marlins? I don’t think so. They suffer and get no sympathy… in fact their very existence is questioned.

That plus I look at the new statue to Jackie Robinson at the Rose Bowl in this Episode of Sully Baseball.

Detroit Tigers stars Alan Trammell and Jack Morris are now Hall of Famers. Whatever you think of that bears no matter. They are in. Deal with it. It looks like this summer will be super crowded in Cooperstown no matter what.

Why not open the doors to Bonds, Clemens and everyone else for a massive Hall of Fame class?

Becoming immortal in this Episode of Sully Baseball.
