Baseball is creeping into Facebook. We are 10 years away from wondering how we followed the game without it. In Anaheim, Mike Trout’s greatness is being wasted. Meanwhile I look at the Pirates team that should have won.

My wife agrees that baseball games should not go beyond the 12th. Meanwhile she inadvertently realigns the Major Leagues.

I take another look at the Mets and figure out if ANY Marlins team got away.

Not going too long on this episode of Sully Baseball.

One month into the season, some potential contenders have some tough decisions to make. Meanwhile, Boston fans should listen to criticism rather than be so defensive. And I pick the Tigers team that should have won.

Tough love given in this episode of Sully Baseball.

“Every Day Chucker” – Podcast: Episode #4: MLB Should Go To 154 Games + Recognize All Record Holders From Pre 1961 Again

(Note: I meant to say Joe Dimaggio‘s 56 game hit streak, not Ted Williams in this podcast.  I was talking about the .406 season back in 1941 in this show.)

While the podcast name is still applicable (with full pun intended), due to internet problems and real life issues, my big streak of 3 days in a row with a show ended right there.

I had finished a full podcast but it failed to upload successfully and I lost it outright.  I had even done show #5 (now #4) right after. Yes I could have used that one to make 4 days in a row, but I did not have the time to pound another one out in time for Friday

I am also not sure when I will do my next podcast.  It has been a fun experiment, and I am sure when the mood strikes me next, I now have a platform to use.

Today’s theme was moving the 162 game MLB format each year to 154 Games and keep separate records for both of the totals,

Even with the 8 extra games – many old time records still hold up.  Only Barry Bonds with his 73 bombs in 2001 and Ichiro Suzuki breaking George Sisler‘s 257 hits with 262 in 2004- with Nolan Ryan‘s 383 Strikeouts are the new holders in the last 55 – 56 years.

We could effectively end the steroid era, Or at least have them separate moving forward.

Babe Ruth would be the HR king at 60, although Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire did break the record for that mark much quicker.

Still it would be a true test to see that happen.  It may also extend the LDS rounds to best of 7, and also have enough wiggle room to complete tiebreakers when the season extends by four more off days in 2018.

Sully Baseball Podcast – The First Weekly Show – April 6, 2017

21015_10154006913889937_8264852825198915378_n.jpg

Did you miss me?

How could you? I was only gone 3 days! In the first edition of the new weekly version of the podcast, I reminded us how important the early games of the season can be.

Plus in the Teams That Should Have Won segment, I honor the 2011 Phillies, who should have made history. Instead they fell in a heap.

It may not be daily anymore, but it still feels good to float down the River Sully in this episode of Sully Baseball.

“Every Day Chucker” Podcast Episode #3: Lets Just Have 8 Batters Per Lineup Hit

NO DH and No Pitcher hitting???  Am I crazy, or would this be a creative way to influx some offense into the game without other big changes done to the fabric of baseball?

Consider the injury yesterday to Junior Guerra, and what if it were Clayton Kershaw or Madison Bumgarner.  Or if a Pitcher got hurt like Chien-Ming Wang, or worse like Tony Conigliaro?

Don’t worry folks, this kind of alteration is unlikely to happen, but one has to wonder whether the league will adopt a unified set of rules for both the American and National League.

The Last Daily Episode of the Sully Baseball Podcast – April 2, 2017

After 1,622 straight days of doing a daily podcast, never missing a day, the streak is ending today.

The format will change from daily to weekly. But before I make the change, I wanted to acknowledge the strange 4 1/2 year journey that comprised the single most fun I have ever had doing a creative project.

Thanks for these past 1,622 days of joining you and let’s look forward to what the future may bring.

Chuck Booth Hosts A New Podcast Called “Every Day Chucker”: Well For At Least The Next 8 Days

Chuck Booth hosts his 1st ever solo ‘Podcast’ called the “Every Day” Chucker Podcast.  He salutes Sully Baseball’s Podcast, as Sully ends his 1622 Days straight with a podcast show (usually 20 minutes).

(Related: Link to  The Sully Baseball Podcast.)

Chuck wonders how many days he will do in a row (around 20 minutes), but vows to do at least 8!  Then it is time for season predictions and who will finish where and who will win the 2017 MLB World Series.

Show correction.  Chuck meant to say Miami Marlins personal loss of Jose Ferandez, and not Atlanta Braves tragedy.

Note:  Chuck will only be using SoundCloud for the podcasts.  This is not his real function as a Website Owner, but this is just to fill a gap for a while after Sully stops posting every day.

It may end up like “Speed 2” the movie – after the first film was so good, but oh well. “This Podcast Is Ten Seconds From A Toe-Tag!

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – April 1, 2017

In the latest installment of The Teams That Should Have Won, I look at a franchise that has had a lot of near misses.

The Mets have lost some heart breakers and some big time stars came and went without a ring.

But the team I picked for the Mets could have built on past success and possibly could have avoided the pitfalls that would emerge in the ensuing years.

It is the second to last DAILY episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

ESPN evidently came up with the same line I have been saying for years. I chalk it up to parallel thinking. Meanwhile Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen is the closer and hopes to do what no Washington pitcher has ever done.

Some teams pick badly in the MLB Draft.

But two teams whiffed on picks where they could have put a star in a pennant winning situation.

Essentially they are the Darko Milicics of baseball.
