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.

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.

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.

It is a crapshoot on this episode of 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.

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.

I did NOT risk my body 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.

Max Scherzer certainly has had a peak and highlights worthy of Hall of Fame merit.

But he needs several more years of it and some early warning signs are troublesome.

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.

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.
