What are match ups we can hope for in the 2015 World Series?

An all expansion team World Series? That has never happened before.

A World Series in Seattle? That has eluded history.

Or what about match up between original franchises that we have never seen?

It is a “Getting WAY ahead of ourselves” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Nelson Cruz refuses to relinquish his lead in the AL HR race. The big man clubbed 2 HRs yesterday for his 3rd Multi HR effort of the campaign. This has now given him a 3 Home Run lead over Chris Carter. Of course he is trailing the big Astro for 2 HR games this year by 4 contests. Cruz plated all 7 runs with his offense yesterday, crossing the 100 RBI plateau on the season.  All of his offense should bode well in he is a Free Agent again this winter..  REINHOLD MATAY/AP

The 21 Year Old Slugger now has 10 HRs on the year.  His teammate Wilson Ramos also added his 1st Multi HR effort on Friday night, as the club bashed 6 HRs (park record) over fence, with 4 of them coming off Felix Hernandez.  The Nats tallied 10 HRs total in the 3 game set – while taking 2 out of three contests.

Multi HR Games in MLB 2014: Alvarez Makes List Again As a 1B

Erik Kratz came into a game for the injured Salvador Perez this week, and proceeded to smack homers in consecutive AB.  The 34 Year Old Catcher has now clubbed 23 HRs in 474 Lifetime AB.  Perhaps always overlooked, this back up Backstopper should help out KC down the stretch - whenever they want to rest their ALL - Star Catcher.  He is surely a better option than Brett Hayes was.

Multi HR Games in MLB 2014: Chris Carter + David Ortiz Doing Some Damage This Week

 

Edwin Encarnacion has been out of the Jays Lineup for almost a month.  Even with that fact, he is still tied for the Major League lead in Multi HR contests for 2014, with 6.  Chris Carter of the Astros just tied him this week, although he has played way more games. EE has 6 multi HR games in about a 7 week span from May 8 to July.  Encarnacion is also still just 5 HRs off of the Major League Lead for Bolts heading into action on Sunday Aug.17, 2014.

Multi HR Games MLB 2014

Javier Baez clubbed a tater in his MLB debut, took a game off, then knocked off his 1st Multi HR effort in his 3rd game.  The Cubs 21 Year Old 2B from Puerto Rico, was the 9th overall selection by Chicago in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft.  This kid has scary power, and I thus think he will be adding him name to many future multiple HR games in his lifetime.

This kid has scary power, and I thus think he will be adding him name to many future multiple HR games in his lifetime.  Even in going Homerless in the last 2 games, Baez still has smacked 3 Roundtrippers in his 1st 23 AB.  While he may not reach Kevin Mass like status (10 HRs hit  in his 1st 72 AB for the MLB record of ‘quickest 10″ he is off to a fast start.)

Eddie Mathews

Trivia question: who is the only person to play for the Braves franchise in all three of its locations – Boston, Milwaukee, Atlanta? That’s right, Eddie Mathews. And what a Brave he turned out to be – a Hall of Famer, the second greatest Brave of all time (behind Aaron), and the person who redefined the position of Third Base.

Eddie Mathews reached the majors as a twenty-year-old, in 1952. It was the franchise’s final year in Boston and he hit 25 Home Runs, three in one game, and finished third in Rookie-Of-The-Year voting. They should have given him the award – he followed his freshman campaign by smacking 47 HRs to lead the Majors – while driving in 135 RBI. He would hit 30+ Home Runs for nine straight years.
