Shockingly, Hanley Ramirez was designated for assignment yesterday. But when you take two steps back, not only does it make sense for the Red Sox but it also reflects on why last year’s free agency market unfolded the way it did.

Reading the market in this episode of Sully Baseball.

Sully Baseball Podcast – Why I’ve stopped following the Red Sox this year – May 17, 2018

13501923_10155003796444937_7090837957169977509_n

I’ve been a Red Sox fan my whole life. Even when we moved and there was no internet, I still followed them day in and day out.

They are the great sports passion of my life.

But when the Red Sox brought back domestic abuser Steven Wright to the team, it put a knot in my stomach.

I took the Cubs and Yankees to task for signing Aroldis Chapman and the Mets for signing Jose Reyes.

Could I take a similar stance for my beloved Red Sox?

It became clear to me that I had to stop following the team as long as he was on the squad.

Baseball punished Robinson Cano for 1/2 a season for PEDs and Steven Wright 15 days for domestic violence.

Something is wrong there and I do not need to support it. I will be watching a LOT of baseball… just not the Red Sox until Wright is gone.

Doing what is right in this episode of Sully Baseball.

On my birthday, I looked at how different 2018 is shaping up compared to 2017. Last year a handful of NL teams contended while the AL was wide open. This year, it is the National League that looks like a free for all while the American League is top heavy.

Plus I gave my thoughts on legalized sports gambling, which weren’t many thoughts.

Third No Hitter This Year… In As Many Countries

Sean Manea threw one in America… Walker Buehler, Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore combined for one in Mexico and now Canadian James Paxton threw one in his home country.

The Mariners lefty no hit the Blue Jays in a 5-0 final, the sixth no no in Seattle Mariners history. Hisashi Iwakuma had thrown the previous one

 

Paxton has always had ace stuff, but he has had trouble staying healthy. The Mariners are hoping that they finally are going to have that break out year.

I attended my first baseball game of the year and saw the Nashville Sounds top the Memphis Red Birds. I enjoyed the minor league setting but also witnessed a fight taking place in an unusual setting.

Out to the ballgame in this episode of Sully Baseball.

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for Combined Dodger No Hitter)

COMBINEDNONO

Orlando Ramirez / USA TODAY Sports – SNLA

Now THAT was a show for the folks of Monterrey Mexico!

In a game that was drenched in rain, the fans who braved the weather were treated to a combined no hitter. Walker Buehler took the first six. Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore each threw a no hit inning and an unlikely group of arms etched their names into Dodgers history.

They knocked a more likely name off of this list… Clayton Kershaw.

Of course they did this against the Padres, still looking for their first No Hitter in Team History.

Now to update the list.
