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.

Paying respect on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

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.

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.

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.

As the holidays pile up, I wish I could go to a ballgame. I will do the next best thing.

For my birthday, I went to a ballgame at AT&T Park with podcast superfan Marcel, aka @CU8SFAN (Cubs Fan with an 8.)

That podcast can be heard HERE.

Well, there was part of the recording I did NOT use and make it a new episode for you all. @cu8sfan and I talked about Cap Bingo and other things.

So take yourself out to the ballgame this December on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

In a vacuum, I would not make this signing for Encarnacion. But this deal was made for 2017 and 2018 alone, and one extra year isn’t so bad.

A nice present is under the tree for Cleveland fans on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
