Was Rich Gossage the greatest reliever of all time? He is certainly in the conversation. But if one tiny thing had changed in his Hall of Fame career, we’d think of him much differently.

@sullybaseball 2X Yup. They wouldn’t have approved Goose Gossage’s wild mustache in the ’30s, so why should we play like he did in the 70s?

He is right. Different times are played with different styles. And the old stars might not always be painted with the best brush.
Everything old is not necessarily new again on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Today I play part 2 of my interview with former San Diego Padre star shortstop Garry Templeton.
We talked about memories of the 1984 playoffs and World Series and some other San Diego thoughts

The Detroit Tigers don’t have a full time closer right now. Do they really need one with all of their pitching depth?
That’s the question on today’s edition of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Note from Alex Mednick: I am going to be putting together a small project that accumulates all the best players of all time, and puts them together on teams according to their birthplace. For example, in this first edition I will be breaking down players from the United States of America into teams from the 1) Northeast, 2) Southeast, 3) Midwest, and 4) Southwest…(sorry, there really is not enough quality coming out of the northwest to compete with these teams…maybe I will put a Northwestern United States team in a later edition with less competitive teams). Later on I will bring you teams assembled from the all-time greats out Central and South American (Mexico, Venezuela, Panama, Panama Canal Zone, etc.) and the All-Caribbean Team (Dominican Republic, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Curacao, etc). Also look forward to teams from Japan, Canada and the EU. Should be fun to sort of assemble an “Olympics” of Baseball. I love watching the World Baseball Classic and seeing players fight for their nations pride…but by grouping the teams by region, it might make the teams more competitive. Of course, this is all for the sake of speculation; Babe Ruth was a great player, but I don’t think he will be taking any at-bat’s soon. (Also, please note that I do not lend consideration to relief pitchers in this analysis). Read the rest of this entry
