Yandy Diaz missed the cycle when his second double hit the top of the wall, inches away from a homer. He settled for reaching base 5 times, scoring 4 times, singling, tripling and doubling twice with a pair of RBI as the Indians crushed Boston and Sale, 13-6.
Christian Yelich got on base 4 times, homered and scored 3 times to help the Marlins win a wild 9-8 game with Philadelphia.
Martin Perez threw 7 shutout innings as the stunning comeback of the Rangers continued with a 3-0 blanking of the Angels.
Stephen Strasburg struck out 7 Astros in 6 innings of 3 hit shutout ball. He did not get the decision but the Nationals won in extra innings, 5-4.

Sully Baseball Podcast – Giants for Sale, Bunting in No Hitters and the 2007 Rockies – June 24, 2017
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.
Baseball is creeping into Facebook. We are 10 years away from wondering how we followed the game without it. In Anaheim, Mike Trout’s greatness is being wasted. Meanwhile I look at the Pirates team that should have won.

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.
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.
The first base coach should always be a place for a fan favorite. I make my suggestions for each team.
I yell BACK on this episode of Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

I have no doubt the WBC final was exciting and for fans of the WBC, I am sure it was a huge highlight.
Now comes the hard part: Building on it.
Let’s start the season already on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
In the latest episode of The Teams That Should Have Won, I cover the Oakland A’s.
There are a lot of A’s teams that frustrated their fan base over the years. But only the 2002 A’s could have given their fans a Hollywood Ending… literally!

Maybe that is a lesson… maybe I need to shed things and move on.

Dallas Green died today. He may not have been cute and cuddly, but he woke up two dormant fan bases and gave them something to cheer about in the 1980’s.

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.

I totally get why these would be considered the Good Old Days.
It is funny when you considered at the time it was consider the End of Days.
Enjoy this nostalgic look on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
The latest installment of the Teams That Should Have Won is the 1993 San Francisco Giants.
The Giants have had a lot of near misses and a lot of recent titles. But a win in 1993 would have been something really special.
Memories of the Stick in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Changes are coming to the podcast and I ask you all for suggestions.
But as I look at what I have accomplished with the daily podcast, I wonder something: What have I been talking about?
It is time to reflect on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
What managers are currently worthy of making it to the Hall of Fame? Which managers will get over the hump if they win the 2017 World Series?
It is a resume padding episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
What kind of legacy and careers could Lymon Bostock, Jose Fernandez and Nick Adenhart have had if their lives weren’t cut short?
How much of Roberto Clemente’s and Thurman Munson’s beloved status had to do with their untimely deaths?

On the campus of UC Berkeley, I talked about Tommy John and how his career and impact on the game as a pioneer had more effect on the game than many Hall of Famers.

@sullybaseball on the WBC how bizarre is it that we can’t watch it outside of the USA? We’re blacked out on MLB TV!

Seriously baseball. I don’t want to watch the WBC but how the hell can you black out the people who DO want to see it?
I make reference to slapping fish together on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
THE TEAMS THAT SHOULD HAVE WON series continues.
It is tough to feel for the Yankees and their misery needs to be graded on a curve. But I have no doubt that Yankee fans would have given anything to add 2001 to their World Series collection.
27 is not enough on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
New cutting edge technology we use to enjoy entertainment is nothing new to young adults. And baseball can survive if they put their old wine in new bottles.
From the campus of UC Berkeley, enjoy this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
All things being equal, I would have been a Pirates fan. I have always gravitated towards them.
The current version of the Bucs are at an agonizing crossroads.

@sullybaseball If you pull all MLB pitchers from the WBC, it will cease to exist. Is that what you’re going for?
— Michael (@MichaelT162) February 27, 2017
The WBC is well meaning but even its supporters can’t separate it from a spring training game.
I have ideas how to fix it, but if it goes away, I won’t be sad.

The vastness of the cosmos is helping me deal with the inevitability of the Red Sox losing David Price for the season.
We are all on the pale blue dot on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Baseball is meant to be a diversion or a distraction from every day life. But often the players, the key distractors, have real life interfere with their production on the field. Jake Peavy, dealing with a prolonged divorce is the latest example of reality colliding with fantasy.

Enjoy Joe Blanton’s home run in the 2008 World Series.
Mike Trout might never be universally recognized and that MAY just be a product of the current way we consume culture. Meanwhile Mike Scioscia might have outstayed his welcome.
