It is time for The Sunday Request

Andrew McCutchen should be the face of baseball as he is everything positive about baseball.
That and why today’s Red Sox loss and today’s Toronto loss are microcosms of their season on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Taylor Jungmann, Hisashi Iwakuma, Cole Gillespie, Jose Reyes, John Lackey, Carlos Carrasco, Mark Reynolds and Mitch Moreland all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?
You want to make a lot of money? Take my predictions for the playoffs, bet against ALL of them and make a fortune.
The Giants shutout the Pirates and at least one Bay Area team gets to move forward.
Meanwhile I talk pronunciations, Division Series and wishing that the Chronicle’s Sporting Green was printed on green paper again.
It is a throw your predictions away episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
A positively bonkers eve to the final (scheduled) regular season game leaves more questions than answers.
Tomorrow could be even crazier and realistic scenarios have as many as three additional games being played on Monday.
Things are getting odd and I’m recording a podcast in my garage.
It is a tin foil hat crazy episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast
There is a possibility that Derek Jeter‘s final game at Yankee Stadium could get rained out. That is hilarious.
That and Wild Card scenarios on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are a scary team heading into the post season. Not because of momentum (which is meaningless, especially with a one game playoff) but because of which players are healthy, strong and playing at a high level.
It is a raise the Jolly Roger episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Baseball can adapt not only to the digital age but learn the lessons that the movie industry eventually learned about home video.

The Nationals and Orioles both locked down their respective league’s East Division’s last night. Could it be a possible Beltway World Series?
Or how about a Freeway Series (I-5) between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Angels Of Orange County near Disneyland and Fullerton (or whatever Arte Moreno’s team us called now).
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, maybe iconic close series of 1985 and 1989 respectively, meaning the I-70 series (KC vs STL) or the Bay Bridge (Earthquake Series), between the A’s and Giants.
Both of those winning clubs have not won the Fall Classic since those years.
Even Detroit and Pittsburgh are only 284 Miles apart, should they have a chance meeting.
Who is not here for the 1st time in 20 years – will probably be the Braves (whose playoff chances are on fumes), and the Yankees/Red Sox all failed to have at least one representative of those 3 in the Post Season since 1989, when the Cubs, Dodgers, A’s and Blue Jays made the playoffs.
2009 was the last time teams within close proximity to each other squared off in the World Series – when the Yanks took out the defending champion Phillies in 6 games.
The Yankees/Mets 2000 “Subway Series” was the last time two teams in the same city played in the Fall Classic, something the 2 Los Angeles squad’s could do.
I talk about the pennant chase becoming clearer, why the Tigers and A’s are going to be OK and why the Pirates remind me of the movie The Right Stuff.
That and more on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Does ANY team want to win the second NL Wild Card spot?
The Brewers, Pirates and Braves aren’t acting like teams that want to.
It is a glass half full and glass half empty episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Kyle Lohse nearly threw a complete game, going 8 2/3 innings, letting up just 4 hits and 1 earned run, striking out 9 and walking none. He helped continue the Brewers 9 game winning streak with a 4-1 triumph over the Pirates.
Scott Kazmir dominated the Mariners with 6 innings of 2 hit shutout ball. He struck out 9 and walked none. While he didn’t get the win, he set up Oakland’s dramatic 3-0 victory.
Adrian Gonzalez homered in his 4th straight game, going 2-5 and drove in 3 as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks in Arizona (not Australia), 8-6.
Alexei Ramirez hit a 2 run, walk off, come from behind homer to give the White Sox a dramatic 4-3 win over the Indians.

At the MLB Reports, we intend to show you the Roster Tree for the Houston Astros – and how they assembled their current roster for hitting and Pitching.
It will work in a six degrees of separation like format.
Once we figure out the origin of how many trades going back in time it takes to see where the tree started, it will be time to dissect how the team fared on the deals.
If a player has never left the organization at all, the tree will be easy – as it will just be the year they were drafted or signed.
Sometimes pitchers will be in the hitters part of the write-up and vice versa. This is simply done when one side of hitter or pitcher is dealt for each other. Read the rest of this entry
No April Fools on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Not sure it is going to work, but I enjoyed seeing them both try.
