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.

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.

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.

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?

It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

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.

Evolve or become extinct 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.

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.

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.

It is a “Don’t Break What Isn’t Broken” episode of 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.

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!

Looking back at right now on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

It is pretty clear to me that Joe Jackson has paid his price. But would would that mean for Pete Rose and his Hall of Fame chances?

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.

It is Christmas Day. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

And it is also time for The Sunday Request.

 

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.

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.

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.

Look at yourself and others on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

It is the first Sunday Request for the off season.

Beyond my thoughts about Chapman as a human being, his performance as a closer was not exactly awe inspiring. It is tough to call him a difference maker in the World Series.

It is the last day of the season. I found time to do a Sunday Request.

 

I may not be a Chapman fan but that doesn’t mean I HATE the Cubs. It all has to do with how I PERSONALLY want games to unfold.

Also I give end of the year thoughts on this episode of the Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Ty Blach, Joey Votto, Collin McHugh Joey Wendle, Clayton Kershaw, Ryan Howard and Robinson Cano all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday and Julio Teheran, Aaron Sanchez, Matt Wieters, Denard Span, Brian McCann, Justin Verlander, Charlie Blackmon and Paul Clemens all updated their totals today.
