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.

I give Clayton Kershaw a break, criticize the Dodgers and hope that the series goes 7 to become an all time classic.

Brad Peacock helped show that the Astros are using their bullpen the way it should be used: Use the best pitchers for the best situation to win a game. I hope the Series goes 6 or 7 to become a classic.

There are at least 4 and maybe as many as 7 managerial openings in baseball at Bad things happen to teams when Adrian Gonzalez is on the active roster. Not saying he is the cause. Just making an observation.

Meanwhile Ken Gura ( @kengura463inCLE on Twitter ) has some thoughts on media bias.

Sorry buddy but facts might not back that up.

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.

That plus I call for the name to be changed for Yawkey Way and I figure out which Cardinals team should have won.

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.

The Twins are in first place and Ervin Santana is a big reason for that. He is also one of the best trade chips in the game right now. Should the Twins go for it or cash in Santana at top value?

Also, in honor of Twins manager Paul Molitor, the Milwaukee Brewers team that should have won.

Should I stay or should I go 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.

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.
