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.

The card of the day for Sully Baseball was a Mark Davis Topps Card. I bet you do not know this, but he is a Cy Young winner once traded for a Hall of Famer and another time dealt for an MVP.

I am POSITIVE you didn’t know that.

Pad your resume on this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

A few days ago, I thought the Marlins were about to get a normal owner.

Now the Marlins management is somehow mixed up with the Trump Presidency and the French Embassy.

This is bananas.

Florida is nuts again on this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

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.

The Astros need to go all in. And that means taking Zack Greinke off of the Diamondbacks’ hands. Meanwhile I have all sorts of tech issues.

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.

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.

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.

Atlanta has become a city synonymous with sports suffering, especially after this Super Bowl. Maybe a rebuilt Braves team can turn that around.

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.

img_8848For this week’s Sunday Request, I am going to answer multiple Tweets.

Yes, I could have just focused on the positive. But sometimes you need to shine the light on the negative.

And seeing the cavalier and dismissive attitude we see towards domestic violence, especially by the coverage of Aroldis Chapman, the shrugs by Hal Steinbrenner and the covering up by the NFL shows that too many people are on the wrong side of history.

That and a few Super Bowl Sunday thoughts and admiring those practicing softball in February on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

One of the most intriguing “What Ifs” in baseball history is the question “What if the Reds did NOT trade Frank Robinson to Cincinnati?”

Truth be told, while it was a HORRIBLE trade for the Reds, it is hard to see them having a BETTER decade in the 1970’s with him as they had without him.

For some reason, my kids love the Star Wars prequels. But my being incredulous to liking The Phantom Menace et al made me realize I was doing what I hate when I hear it from baseball fans:

I was discounting what they loved based on MY Nostalgia.

Tom Brunansky made a great catch to clinch the 1990 AL East Division for the Red Sox. I remembered looking for a place in New York to watch the game. And comedian Mike Donovan recorded the catch on video. Today those two actions would be taken for granted. In 1990, they took determination to do.

It is a modern technology episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Here is the clip of Mike Donovan’s video.

The A’s in Oakland have a history of innovation on and off the field. Their new stadium should reflect that. And Las Vegas should rig a few games to make sure the Raiders move out to give the A’s room to build their park.

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.

It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

Cabrera and Pujols are both going to the Hall of Fame. Right now as the best offensive player of their generation, they could be neck and neck.

And a Trout is swimming up to them!

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!

But this has been a strange off season where they have been big spender to essentially stand pat.

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.
