Sully Baseball Podcast – Talking Angels with J. Keith van Straaten – January 20, 2018

The Angels have the best player in baseball and signed one of the biggest stars in the world. There is plenty to get excited about in Anaheim.

I invited comedian, TV host and Angels super fan J. Keith van Straaten to join the podcast. We talked about his fandom, Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani, Mike Scioscia and what made the 2002 team so special.

Giving Orange County its due on this episode of Sully Baseball.

Minnesota fans might see a title unlike any other in history for the Super Bowl on the site of World Series glory. Meanwhile the Pirates are sadly breaking apart. The Brewers should push to win now in the depressed free agent market.

Smaller markets have their day in this episode of Sully Baseball.

I want career minor leaguer Balbino Fuenmayor to make the Nationals this year. Plus I think Stephen Strasburg is one of the players all baseball fans should root for.

Lots of DC love in this episode of Sully Baseball.

The great announcer Keith Jackson passed away today. Most remember him as a football voice. He was also a great baseball announcer. He would have had more memorable calls had Howard Cosell not stepped on him so often.

Celebrating great pipes in this episode of Sully Baseball.

The Twins have gone from almost being contracted to being in nearly half of the post seasons over two decades. Yet without a title, nobody will remember. Minnesota wants to do something about that.

Friend of the Podcast @cu8sfan (Cubs fan with an 8) made a request.

I do not think it is collusion.
I think it is the free market at work.

I also plug The Lords of the Realm by John Helyar.

Letting the money lands where it may on this episode of Sully Baseball.

Rafael Palmeiro is making a comeback at age 53. GOOD!

Making a comeback all the way to the bigs would reset his Hall of Fame clock and give his career a better finish.

I hope he does it with the Marlins, who I also hope become a safe haven for other comebacks.

No finger wagging on this episode of Sully Baseball.

What fans suffer the most? I would argue that Canadian sports fans are suffering the most because they are waiting for hockey glory as well.

Wishing everyone a happy new year on this episode of Sully Baseball.

Here is the 2017 Suffering Index explanation.
