What are the Dodgers up to?

Is the team falling apart and letting the other NL West clubs, like San Francisco and Arizona, take over? Or are they building something that we can’t quite see right now but will be dominating.

It reminds me of Tony Stark in the cave during the first Iron Man movie. He built something powerful right under everyone’s noses and turned failure into victory.

Maybe that’s what the Dodgers are doing.

Lots of beer flowing at the game is a baseball tradition. But SHOULD it be?

How much better could the experience of a baseball game be WITHOUT beer? And how much money can be made cutting off from the beer wagon?

Tonight is Game 6 of the World Series.

Those words can bring up so many different memories. Who will be the Reggie Jackson, Carlton Fisk, Don Denkinger, Bill Buckner, Kirby Puckett, Joe Carter, Tom Glavine, Josh Beckett, David Freese or Nelson Cruz of the night?

Meanwhile I all but beg Joe Maddon to take over the Dodgers.

It could be a memorable night that is previewed on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Take a look at the map above. It is from an ESPN survey of baseball fans asking them which team they are rooting for. The blue states are rooting for the Royals fans. The red ones are pulling for the San Francisco Giants.

That’s pretty cut and dry who most people are rooting for.

The Giants are indeed the bad guys in the 2014 World Series. Relish it, Giants Fans.

Also, what the hell was going on with Tim Lincecum? Is there a behind the scenes rift?

I would hate for last night’s loss to be Koji Uehara‘s last game with the Red Sox… but it might be.

Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast. is a direct response to a Twitter follower.

I gave Who Owned Baseball to Julio Teheran over Adam Wainwright. Not everyone agreed.

It was a tough call. But the main difference was the fact that Teheran pitched against a first place Milwaukee team and Wainwright pitched against a horrible Diamondbacks squad.
