Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – January 7, 2016

oakland-oco-coliseumThe football playoffs are starting and there are some playoff teams who do not have a single player I can name.

But I always watch the NFL in January and I do so through a baseball prism.

Thinking of the Boys of Summer in the Dead of Winter on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

For those of you who do not know what the Suffering Index is, here is my explanation.

2017 Baseball’s Breakout Players at Each Position

C- J.T. Realmuto (Miami Marlins): Realmuto had a great year in 2016, but I expect him to maintain, if not improve in 2017. At only 25 years old, Realmuto has plenty of room for growth, but he is moving in the right direction. He has a rare combination of on base potential, speed, and power at the catching position. While I am a little worried about his .357 BABIP in 2016, his 8.8% HR/FB ratio tells me he could really tap into his power potential moving forward. There are plenty of decent offensive players in the Marlins lineup in 2017, so Realmuto should have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs or score himself. While he isn’t the most exciting breakout player, the catching position is a tough position to get excited about except for the top 3-5 players.

Projection: .290 BA, .340 OBP, 15 home runs, 65 runs, 65 RBIs, 13 stolen bases

Other Potential Breakout: Tom Murphy

As the holidays pile up, I wish I could go to a ballgame. I will do the next best thing.

For my birthday, I went to a ballgame at AT&T Park with podcast superfan Marcel, aka @CU8SFAN (Cubs Fan with an 8.)

That podcast can be heard HERE.

Well, there was part of the recording I did NOT use and make it a new episode for you all. @cu8sfan and I talked about Cap Bingo and other things.

ON BLUE JAYS & PLUNDERING THE PIRATES FOR LEFTY RELIEF HELP

 

JAYS FROM THE COUCH LOOKS AT THE POSSIBILITY OF THE BLUE JAYS EXPLORING SOME OF THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES POSSIBLE BULLPEN TRADE PIECES.

 

4-jays-from-the-couch_transparent-01

 

On Monday, JP Morosi tweeted out some nuggets on the Blue Jays longing for lefty help out of the bullpen, mentioning interest in Jerry Blevins and Boone Logan. These are names that have been mentioned on Jays From the Couch before (Blevins here and Logan here), but Morosi went further to whet the mouths of Blue Jays fans with reported interest in recently-crowned World Series Champion, Travis Wood.

The Indians could be making a run for Edwin Encarnacion. Do you know why? Because every other team in their division is rebuilding.

That and the Giants are signing a closer long term which is never smart on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

No way. No f—ing way. Yeah, I know good things happened on his watch. But he also was involved with one of the most shameful episode in the history of baseball.

I am not talking about steroids or the strike.

One word: Collusion.

mlbreportscoverOne Thousand Five Hundred straight days of podcasting.

Today, along with the audio that as always can be found on Soundcloud and iTunes, I did a video podcast to mark the occasion.

I looked at the concept of baseball nostalgia and realized that everything is trying to celebrate the late 1940’s. Why should post WWII monopolize traditional baseball?

What team has the most pressure on them going into 2017?

It has to be the Dodgers, who despite a galaxy of stars could be going into their third decade without a pennant.

Mike Trout and Kris Bryant are the MVPs. Both good choices.

Mike Trout is half way to his Hall of Fame clinching.

Kris Bryant has already gotten some of the hard parts over with.

Now just imagine a World Series match up featuring the two.

The Tigers need to make some tough decisions, and one that could mean the end of Justin Verlander’s career in Detroit.

I discuss that and discover that Baseball Reference.com (the single greatest website in the history of the planet Earth) showed I am not as clever as I think I am on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
