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

Sully Baseball Podcast – Talking Braves stadium and Angels team that should have won – April 20, 2017
One of my most devoted listeners asked me a question.
@sullybaseball thoughts on the new braves stadium?
— Christopher a austin (@Christopheraau2) April 17, 2017
The Braves new stadium seems nice but kind of what they already had. Meanwhile I discuss the Angels team that should have won.
Travelling down the state of California on this episode of Sully Baseball.
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.
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.
Prolific and wonderful baseball writer Stacey Gotsulias returns to the podcast.
We talked about Red Sox and Yankee memories and she explains why she wanted Dave Roberts to break his leg.
The rivalry is alive on this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The first base coach should always be a place for a fan favorite. I make my suggestions for each team.
I yell BACK on this 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

I have no doubt the WBC final was exciting and for fans of the WBC, I am sure it was a huge highlight.
Now comes the hard part: Building on it.
Let’s start the season already on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
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!
Cue “The Show” on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
I lost a podcast and ALL my Text Messages today.
Maybe that is a lesson… maybe I need to shed things and move on.
Live for today on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
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.
MLB and their on line production can learn from how Disney and Indiana Jones handled home video .
Hi Ho Hi Ho It is Off To Work We Go in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
MLB blackout rules are insane.
But MLB blacking out all of Canada? That is insane.
The great white north is honored in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

I totally get why these would be considered the Good Old Days.
It is funny when you considered at the time it was consider the End of Days.
Enjoy this nostalgic look on 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.
Memories of the Stick in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Changes are coming to the podcast and I ask you all for suggestions.
But as I look at what I have accomplished with the daily podcast, I wonder something: What have I been talking about?
It is time to reflect on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
What managers are currently worthy of making it to the Hall of Fame? Which managers will get over the hump if they win the 2017 World Series?
It is a resume padding episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
What kind of legacy and careers could Lymon Bostock, Jose Fernandez and Nick Adenhart have had if their lives weren’t cut short?
How much of Roberto Clemente’s and Thurman Munson’s beloved status had to do with their untimely deaths?
A what could have been episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
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.
Gaining respect for Ripken in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
On the campus of UC Berkeley, I talked about Tommy John and how his career and impact on the game as a pioneer had more effect on the game than many Hall of Famers.
I did NOT risk my body on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

@sullybaseball on the WBC how bizarre is it that we can’t watch it outside of the USA? We’re blacked out on MLB TV!
— markblakemore (@markblakemore) March 8, 2017
Seriously baseball. I don’t want to watch the WBC but how the hell can you black out the people who DO want to see it?
I make reference to slapping fish together on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
THE TEAMS THAT SHOULD HAVE WON series continues.
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.
27 is not enough on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
New cutting edge technology we use to enjoy entertainment is nothing new to young adults. And baseball can survive if they put their old wine in new bottles.
From the campus of UC Berkeley, enjoy this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
All things being equal, I would have been a Pirates fan. I have always gravitated towards them.
The current version of the Bucs are at an agonizing crossroads.
Celebrate the Fam A Lee in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Rays pitcher Chris Archer has some admirable sentiments about the WBC. But I think that a real unifying lesson can be found with how baseball is already set up.
It is a melting pot episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Some teams find themselves in flux between identity shifts. I illustrate that by shaving my beard.
I take blade to face on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.
@sullybaseball If you pull all MLB pitchers from the WBC, it will cease to exist. Is that what you’re going for?
— Michael (@MichaelT162) February 27, 2017
The WBC is well meaning but even its supporters can’t separate it from a spring training game.
I have ideas how to fix it, but if it goes away, I won’t be sad.
