The Giants do a lot to honor the greats of their past, both from San Francisco and New York. There are a few names they should add and a couple of more numbers they could retire.

I record Episode 946 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast at AT&T Park among the seagulls.

3 guys named Chris (Sale, Iannetta and Heston) plus Andrew McCutchen, Nick Martinez, Shelby Miller, Brian McCann and Justin Upton all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

It is Carl Yastrzemski’s birthday. While waiting to get a haircut, I remembered the summer of 1979 where I eagerly watched Yaz’s 3,000 hit chase.

That and some reflections on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Kennys Vargas, Brandon McCarthy, Clayton Kershaw, Buster Posey, David Price, Justin Ruggiano, Zach Walters and Tyson Ross all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

For the past month, no team has been hotter than the Cincinnati Reds.

Their pitching is incredibly deep and now they are starting to hit. A great second half is not out of the question.

That and an exhausting weekend of baseball on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Felix Hernandez, Homer Bailey, Matt Joyce, Pedro Alvarez, Carlos Beltran, Tim Hudson, Mark Buehrle and Marlon Byrd all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

Adam Wainwright continues being a dominating pitcher. How many more years does he have to be an elite pitcher to start thinking of him as a Hall of Fame pitcher?

How much does closing out the 2006 World Series add to his lore?

How much does missing the 2011 Series take away from it?

That and more on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Josh Donaldson, Carlos Ruiz, Corey Kluber, Bartolo Colon, Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon Cumpton and Dayan Viciedo all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

The National League Relief Pitcher Award is going to be named after Trevor Hoffman? I can not say I agree with that choice!

Also I tip my hat to Billy Hamilton and once again try to help Jim Johnson.

All on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Ryan Braun, Delmon Young, Tim Hudson, Chris Archer, Jose Altuva, Starlin Castro and Max Scherzer all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast was recorded at San Jose Minetta Airport. Always an ideal place for podcast sound.

I bought the Sporting News Baseball Preview and came to the conclusion that the White Sox might have a trick or two up their sleeves.

I recorded today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast at an airport.

While the Yankees went on a big spending spree yesterday, I pointed out that they are not addressing their main problems and this is NOT the same as 2009.

Jhonny Peralta signed a gigantic contract after being suspended for PEDs. Should there be a bigger punishment for PED users? Do we really want one?

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.

On The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast for St. Patrick’s Day, I make a suggestion to the Red Sox to develop an Irish born star.

I also pay tribute to Joe Cleary, the last Irish born player in Major League History.

Read Charlie Bevis’ wonderful article on SABR.org about Joe Cleary HERE.
