Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – January 15, 2017

giant-splash-san-francisco-ap9202270238It is time for The SUNDAY REQUEST.

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!

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

It is Friday the 13th, a day that brings up issues of luck and good fortune. Some players had horrible luck. Others had obscenely good luck.

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.

oakland-oco-coliseumThe football playoffs are starting and there are some playoff teams who do not have a single player I can name.

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

Thinking of the Boys of Summer in the Dead of Winter on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

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.

Opinions versus stats are debated on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

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.

On today’s episode, I am posting part 2 of my conversation with former Detroit Tigers outfielder Larry Herndon.

The Raiders are trying to squeeze hundreds of millions of dollars out of Oakland for a new stadium. Why does Oakland bend over backwards for the Raiders and not the A’s?

And the A’s should think of breaking up with Oakland.

Things might not be working out on this episode of  The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

I made a snarky remark… and as it turned out, I was wrong. And I am stunned I was wrong about this topic. I still am.

But it goes to show the value of never thinking you know everything.

The next few years will not feature a lot of wins for your team and LOTS for the Cubs. But if you stay loyal to your team, the amazing rebuilding process by the GM will reward you soon.

Chris Sale was dealt to the Red Sox from the White Sox… and oddly it could make a lot of sense for both teams.

The Red Sox are trying to win now and got him without bteaking up their young outfield.

The White Sox need quality AND quantity in their farm and Sale’s value is at its peak.

Socks are changed and bad puns are made on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

mlbreportscoverOne Thousand Five Hundred straight days of podcasting.

Today, along with the audio that as always can be found on Soundcloud and iTunes, I did a video podcast to mark the occasion.

I looked at the concept of baseball nostalgia and realized that everything is trying to celebrate the late 1940’s. Why should post WWII monopolize traditional baseball?

Celebrating 1500 shows in the can and many more to follow on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

It is the Sunday Request… and evidently the tweet I was going to respond to has been erased. Go figure.

Well, friend of the Podcast @IlliniDodgers had issues with something I said in a previous podcast. I think he was right.

Along the way I tried to talk about a 60 second wait time to respond on Twitter and minority manager hirings.

It is a podcast of tough questions. Maybe I don’t have the answers, but I know we need to ask them.
