Sully Baseball Podcast – Thoughts on the All Star Game, Satchel Paige, Jose Reyes and the 1996 Padres – July 12, 2017

miami

The All Star Break lumbers on. I give some All Star Game rule changes and make a suggestion for the Marlins to honor Satchel Paige.
Meanwhile, the Mets stupidly honor Jose Reyes and I figure out which San Diego Padres team should have won.

Nice weather in Miami and San Diego

on this episode of Sully Baseball.

While we are at it, enjoy the In Memoriam video.

One of my most devoted listeners asked me a question.

The Braves new stadium seems nice but kind of what they already had. Meanwhile I discuss the Angels team that should have won.

What we consider to be good and bad used to be objective in baseball. But was it ever really?

Plus I remember the 2006 in the Teams that Should Have Won series.

Less objectivity and more subjectivity on this episode of Sully Baseball.

Did you miss me?

How could you? I was only gone 3 days! In the first edition of the new weekly version of the podcast, I reminded us how important the early games of the season can be.

Plus in the Teams That Should Have Won segment, I honor the 2011 Phillies, who should have made history. Instead they fell in a heap.

It may not be daily anymore, but it still feels good to float down the River Sully in this episode of Sully Baseball.

The Last Daily Episode of the Sully Baseball Podcast – April 2, 2017

After 1,622 straight days of doing a daily podcast, never missing a day, the streak is ending today.

The format will change from daily to weekly. But before I make the change, I wanted to acknowledge the strange 4 1/2 year journey that comprised the single most fun I have ever had doing a creative project.

Thanks for these past 1,622 days of joining you and let’s look forward to what the future may bring.

One thing ends as a season begins on the final episode of Sully Baseball DAILY Podcast.

In the latest installment of The Teams That Should Have Won, I look at a franchise that has had a lot of near misses.

The Mets have lost some heart breakers and some big time stars came and went without a ring.

But the team I picked for the Mets could have built on past success and possibly could have avoided the pitfalls that would emerge in the ensuing years.

It is the second to last DAILY episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

A few years ago, Jurickson Profar was the consensus best prospect in baseball.

Now he is a man without a position with the Rangers.

Jurickson Profar could still be a star shortstop… maybe not in Texas but in San Diego

In the latest episode of The Teams That Should Have Won, I cover the Oakland A’s.

There are a lot of A’s teams that frustrated their fan base over the years. But only the 2002 A’s could have given their fans a Hollywood Ending… literally!

Some teams pick badly in the MLB Draft.

But two teams whiffed on picks where they could have put a star in a pennant winning situation.

Essentially they are the Darko Milicics of baseball.

It is a crapshoot on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The latest installment of the Teams That Should Have Won is the 1993 San Francisco Giants.

The Giants have had a lot of near misses and a lot of recent titles. But a win in 1993 would have been something really special.

Welllllllll folks. All things eventually come to an end. I am not going to end the podcast. But the daily aspect of it might be no longer feasible.

The most important days of the podcast are the ones in the off season, where I can help fill a void.But after 4 1/2 years, doing 365 a year might no longer be possible.

I won’t be going anywhere… just might be reducing the workload to once or twice a week… you know… like a normal podcaster.

But man, this has been one of the most fun things I have ever done in my life.

It is tough to feel for the Yankees and their misery needs to be graded on a curve. But I have no doubt that Yankee fans would have given anything to add 2001 to their World Series collection.
