A lot of people don’t like Field of Dreams. I get it.

I still love it and the reasons why I do reflect that what we love and what we consume, including baseball, do not exist in a vacuum.

No guilty pleasues in this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Building up to Oscar season, I watched the only film connected to baseball: Fences.

Besides being a great showcase for two wonderful stars, Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, it also allows a supporting cast (especially Stephen Henderson) to shine.

As a baseball fan, it also shows how we use our own experiences to paint how we appreciate the greatness of players in the past and the present.

Yeah it is worth seeing.

Also listen to the great podcast Denzel Washington is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period.

It is an honor to be nominated in this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I listed my thoughts on the greatest players in each franchise’s history. I realized that Francisco Lindor has the outside chance to become the greatest player in Cleveland Indians history.

It is there for the taking.

It is a legacy episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Cubs won it all last year. Perhaps you heard. But let’s savor how infrequently a team wins in the year they are SUPPOSED to win!

On Twitter, I posted YouTube clips of the person I declared the best of each franchises. People today call that a GOAT, Greatest of All Time. I am not ready to use that term.

Goat still means something bad to me!

But the reaction I got to the clips inspired The Sunday Request

Try Johnny Bench? Honus Wagner? Wrong? Um, I have given this some thought. I am just trying to get some healthy debate about something that ISN’T politics on line!

Feeling like a goat on this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Here are the Tweets with the video clips.

Alex Reyes looks like he is going to have Tommy John surgery. These Tommy John surgeries are driving me crazy. Perhaps this is a case for good, clean PEDs.

It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

 

This is the stupidest idea I have heard of in a while. There are ways to improve baseball that don’t involve starting a runner on second in extra innings.

It is a “Don’t Break What Isn’t Broken” episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Mike Ilitch has passed away. He was everything a fan could want in an owner and helped make the Tigers a point of pride in a difficult time for Detroit.

Now that he is gone, what will the fortunes of the Tigers be moving forward.

The Giants wonderful bullpen was kept together for probably one season too long. But as it is broken up, salute the 4 rings of Javier Lopez, bid farewell to Sergio Romo and possibly welcome back Brian Wilson.

Even year or Odd year, it is a San Francisco episode of the Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Cardinals may have missed the post season last year (barely) and have flown under the radar this off season. But sleep on this team at your own peril. They have a combination of veterans, young players, and a bunch of comeback candidates poised to make 2017 fun for the Red Birds.

Two little birds are perched on a bat for this episode of the Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Super Bowl was so boring and such a blow out that I decided to do the dishes and record a podcast while my sons made their lunch.

With such a lackluster post season, I realized that baseball’s worst post season in MY lifetime was 1989.

And with the Falcon’s title, the Braves were taken off the hook and can rebuild at their own pleasure.

Little did I know that while I was recording that, the Patriots were staging a comeback for the ages.

Guess I should know better than to count my chickens before they hatch. Everything I said in the podcast became obsolete. But I am going to share it anyway!

I try to guess sports and fail in the process on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

With the Cubs off the hook from their suffering fans, the Houston Astros must now be considered one of the most tortured fan bases in baseball.

A closer examination at their post season past shows a huge number of games that could have been theirs with a bounce here or there.

Houston has a problem on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The San Diego Padres can be a unique fan base if 35,000 people can show up to PetCo Park a day.

Why not? It is a fun time at the ball game!

Sunday, we learned about the tragic deaths of Yordano Ventura and Starling Marte. These were two lives cut short and two very different careers ended in the worst way.

Meanwhile, an awful Tweet by a fan about the death of Ventura made me realize we need to do small things to make this experience of living a little better.

It is hard to make the argument that the region is giving great support to two teams when one of them is always threatening to move because of lack of support!

Besides, supporting two franchises is hard for any city not named New York.

Recorded as I finished giving a friend a movie location tour for this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

There are no Colorado Rockies in the Hall of Fame. I suggested they trade for Ichiro Suzuki to ensure one player will have worn the CR on their hat and made it to Cooperstown.

But Larry Walker and Todd Helton might put a beloved Rockie in the Hall.

It is a Rocky Mountain High episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

But I always watch the NFL in January and I do so through a baseball prism.

The wonderful comedian Kevin Maher, creator of Kevin Geeks Out, joins the podcast to discuss the horrible and so bad you can not look away 1978 baseball comedy Here Come The Tigers, a shameless, heartless and joyless rip off of the classic film, The Bad News Bears.


There is lots of bad to talk about in this failed family picture whose director would go on to make Friday the 13th… no really.

Curt Schilling and I may not see eye to eye on many things. But I do think his Hall of Fame candidacy should be debated and his politics should stay out of it.

Happy New Year and it is time for The Sunday Request.

For a question like this, I could not just make idle speculation. I needed to create a new statistic.

So, as demonstrated in this new Video Podcast, I created THE SUFFERING INDEX, designed to quantify numerically and mathematically which fan base is suffering the most.

But even these calculations found a few gray areas.

Wake up to a new year of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
