Hector Olivera signed with the Dodgers. What does that mean for Don Mattingly’s future with the team?

The Dodgers have a shot to win the World Series this year. But will they fix their bullpen? Should they make a big move? Recent World Series winners suggest maybe they shouldn’t.

Meanwhile I sneaked onto the field of Sunken Diamond at Stanford for this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Detroit Tiger fans need to treat 2015 like it is a Toga Party.

It is episode 715 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I did not think Don Mattingly was making smart decisions leading up to Game 4 of the Division Series. I talked before and then after the game about my thoughts.

Yesterday I said jokingly that the final score of the Cardinals and Dodgers game with Clayton Kershaw and Adam Wainwright pitching would be 10-9.

It is one of my FEW predictions that actually came true.

The Dodgers and Nationals blew critical games, the Tigers bullpen is a joke and the Angels are showing why the best record in the regular season doesn’t mean crap.

Plus I remember my wedding day on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated For September 28, 2014 )

"<strong

The first Washington No Hitter since 1931!

No Washington Nationals pitcher has ever thrown a no hitter. The last one thrown representing Washington? Bobby Burke, who no hit the Red Sox in August of 1931.

That’s all over now!

Jordan Zimmermann threw the first Washington Nationals no hitter (and the first in Franchise History since Dennis Martinez‘s perfect game as a member of the Montreal Expos.)

9 complete, 1 walk and 10 strikeouts of the Marlins, who for the second straight year end the season on a no hitter. Last year Henderson Alvarez won 1-0 over Detroit. This year the Marlins LOST 1-0.

Odd symmetry.

Safe to say, Jordan Zimmermann looks solid for this post season.

It is time to update my list!

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated For September 1, 2014 )

Hey Phillies Fans! You finally have something to cheer about!

I bet when Jonathan Papelbon didn’t get dealt this trade deadline, he didn’t think he would be closing out a no hitter.

Cole Hamels gets his name in the no hitter ledger, but now so do Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Papelbon of all people. A 7-0 win for the Phillies was NOT exactly what the Braves needed right now, but the Phillies have a highlight for the season.

Sadly that means taking Roy Halladay’s Division Series no hitter off this list, but oh well. History waits for nobody, especially not Jake Diekman,

It is time to update my list!

An intense pennant race or NLCS between the Giants and Dodgers is just what baseball needs right now. And the recent San Francisco slump and Los Angeles surge could make that happen this year!

It is a West Coast Bias episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Chase Utley, Jose Reyes, Mike Leake, Rick Porcello, Ryan Wheeler, Joe Mauer and Adam Wainwright all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated For Tim Lincecum, June 25, 2014)

Is Tim Lincecum done? NOT TODAY!

The Giants needed to have a decent pitching performance and give their bullpen a break. What did they get? A masterpiece from Tim Lincecum. For the second straight season, Giant fans can say “Tim is not a Cy Young contender anymore, but at least he gave us a no hitter this year.)

The list of Giants pitchers with more than one no hitter? It is short but impressive:

Christy Mathewson
Tim Lincecum

Good company to be in.

And like last year, Lincecum did it against the Padres, the only remaining franchise without a no hitter.

(Yes, I know, the Washington Nationals haven’t had a no hitter either. They had no hitters when they were the Montreal Expos.)

 

It is time to update my list!

The Dodgers have a lot of issues and need to address some lack of production. Despite that, they are off to a terrific start. And they should thank the horrible Arizona Diamondbacks for that.

That is the topic for today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Cliff Lee, Andrew McCutchen, Garrett Richards, Matt Dominguez, Dustin Pedroia, Tanner Roark and Todd Frazier  all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

Chris Denorfia got a pair of hits, drove in the go ahead run and an insurance run and made a nice running catch in right field, leading the Padres to a come from behind 3-1 win over Los Angeles.

Andrew Cashner looked sharp as San Diego’s opening day starter. He went 6 innings, letting up a single run, 4 hits and struck out 5. He got a no decision as the Padres beat the Dodgers 3-1.

Hyun-Jin Ryu deserved better than a no decision. In his second start of the season, the Dodger left hander threw 7 scoreless innings, surrendering just 3 hits and 3 walks, striking out 7. The bullpen coughed up the lead and the Padres won 3-1. But Ryu earned a 1/2 WOB.

I slept through the Major League Baseball opener last night. So did most of Los Angeles.

That’s a problem.

Also the Dodgers better not get cocky about their role in Los Angeles’ hearts.

That and more on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Clayton Kershaw and Scott Van Slyke added full WOB’s to their total.
Paul Goldschmidt added 1/2 a WOB.

Don Mattingly might be batting Yasiel Puig in the leadoff spot. I think it is a great idea and could mean a change in attitude that I completely embrace.

Usually I would NEVER give a seven year contract to a pitcher, but Clayton Kershaw is not your usual pitcher.

I think the contract is justified. Listen in to find out why.
