Game 5 of the 2017 World Series was absolutely bonkers. It was a chain reaction of dramatic moments that happened last night and banal events from a few nights before that all added up to be the sum total that was the game.

Giancarlo Stanton is having an unbelievable season playing for the Miami Marlins. Should the Red Sox try to trade for him?

HELL NO!!!

Would YOU sign an injury prone player in his late 20’s to an 11 year contract? At the cost of one of your core players?

I hope not.

Sully Baseball Podcast – Giants for Sale, Bunting in No Hitters and the 2007 Rockies – June 24, 2017

toddhelton-rockies-300x290

The Giants need to try and take advantage of all the AL teams bunch together to make good trades. Meanwhile, there is NOTHING wrong with bunting your way on to break up a no hitter. Too many teams are within striking distance of a playoff spot to worry about manners.

Also talking about Ortiz and A-Rod and retiring numbers and remembering the 2007 Rockies.

It is a Rocky Mountain High episode of Sully Baseball.

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.

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.
