It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

 

I know this was tongue in cheek, but it opens up some philosophical questions that are worth bringing up.

It is a “Is the past even passed” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Jason Hammel, Brandon Moss, Josh Tomlin, Elvis Andrus, Cesar Hernandez and Adam Eaton all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.

The Angels reaction to the Josh Hamilton decision was deplorable. They don’t deserve Mike Trout.

Ervin Santana’s reaction to his positive test made me roll my eyes.

That and positive news from Montreal in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I love David Ortiz to death. But has there ever been a player caught in a PED web who has been given a bigger pass than Big Papi? OK, other than Andy Pettitte.

Which makes his rambling and meandering editorial for The Players’ Tribune more aggravating. Just play, be the charming Big Papi and ride off into the sunset! Don’t invite the criticism that you are barely getting to increase.

And maybe more stars who get caught should do what Manny Ramirez did. Accept it and move on.

Meanwhile, I hear from a Twitter follower:

I will… right after this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

2015 MLB Hall of Fame Voting: Who Deserves to Get In?

The MLB Hall of Fame will announce which players will be part of the Induction Class of 2015. The question leading up to the announcement is which players make the cut in this loaded group of talent.

The MLB Hall of Fame will announce which players will be part of the Class of 2015. With players such as Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez being added to the ballot this year, the question remains as to which players will ultimately make the final cut this year?

By Nicholas Delahanty (MLB Reports Writer)

It is very possible that history is made with regards to this year’s MLB Hall of Fame induction class. In the past, the committee has been hesitant to vote in more than three players in one class, and it has been very rare to see more than three voted in at one time. In the past, the committee voted in four players twice (1947 and 1955) and five players only once (1936- the first year of the voting process).

As the decision day quickly approaches, there is speculation that the BBWAA could possibly end the long drought and elect five players this year. With this year’s ballot having a ton of players who could make a legitimate case to be inducted, I decided to go to the process of picking my own ballot (which doesn’t count for the BBWAA), and after taking the time and effort to research my ballet, I realized that it was a much harder process then I anticipated it would be.

I argue they don’t even earn the Bronze medal.

Alex Rodriguez has been suspended for the 2014 season.

Kind of big news, eh?

Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast is not so much a Sunday Request as it is a Sunday Response.

Andrés du Bouchet is one of the funniest and most talented comedic minds currently breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide on the planet Earth. As an Emmy nominated writer and frequent performer on Conan, his brilliant comedic imagination and performing style can be seen on national TV.

And I had the privilege of seeing him as a sketch performer in the late 1990s and 2000s in venues all around New York.

A big sports fan and a lifelong Mets supporter, Andrés went to Twitter to question the adoration of David Ortiz after the 2013 World Series.

If he were a Yankee fan, I’d chalk it up to sour grapes and remind him that Andy Pettitte was practically deified in September.

But I decided to actually respond, not as a Red Sox fan, but as a baseball observer. Why does David Ortiz and Andy Pettitte get off Scott Free while the likes of A-Rod have to fight for their baseball lives.

My conclusion is that PED’s don’t really enter into the thought process.

As the topic of A-Rod persists, August 7 is the anniversary of Barry Bonds breaking Hank Aaron’s record and the birthday of Mike Trout. Those two events are oddly connected.

Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon: Will Their Absences Be Amplified Down the Stretch?

Sunday September 2nd, 2012

Jake Dal Porto: It has been a couple of weeks since Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon were suspended for taking Performance Enhancing Drugs, but their respective teams have thrived since receiving the bad news. The Giants are 12-5 since losing their star outfielder, while the A’s are 10-1 since losing arguably one of the best pitchers on their staff. It’s safe to say that both clubs have put negative news behind them, and are focused on making the playoffs. However, just because both teams have found success in the wake of the suspensions, doesn’t mean that they won’t feel the effect down the stretch drive.

The Giants clearly lost more than the A’s. They lost an everyday player, as opposed to a player who can make an impact every five days and is older and injury prone. When Cabrera was suspended he led baseball in the hits department, and was among the top five in batting average. Now, he leads the National League in batting average (.346), and yes, he can still win that honor despite the suspension. But Cabrera was a fixture in the Giants’ lineup. When the team was struggling, he seem to continuously spark them with one big hit after another. And once San Francisco acquired Hunter Pence from the Phillies, their three through six batters were seen as a legitimate powerhouse. But only for one game did they have all four hitters intact.
