Monday Night Around the Majors/The Sully Baseball Show 05/21 by Seamheads | Blog Talk Radio
On The Sully Baseball Podcast, I included parts of two previous interviews that were originally cut out.
I enjoyed my talk with So Buttons author Jonathan Bayliss about baseball movies and WFAN’s Jason Keidel and I had a long Pete Rose discussion.
I couldn’t find a place to put them in previous shows, so I shared them on this one.
It is on the second hour of the Seamheads Tuesday night block.
Yankee fans, I don’t want to hear anyone talking smack against the Red Sox.
Yeah the Yankees were in first place a month ago. Yeah they were 5 games over .500 on May 14.
Yeah the Red Sox started the season 1-5 and were 5-10 at one point. Yeah the Red Sox were the laughing stock of baseball.
Well guess what?
They have identical records now.
The Yankees and Red Sox are equals in terms of being over paid, over hyped, under achieving embarrassments.
Neither have anything to crow about.
Neither team can brag.
It’s 42 games into the season, just about 1/4 of the season has passed, and both teams are .500.
So I hope Yankee fans didn’t think the Red Sox start was too horrible.
Because the Yankee start was just as rotten.
I have the numbers to prove it.
I’ve seen Washington closer Henry Rodriguez pitch twice.
The first game he was pitching against the Dodgers and blew a 9th inning lead with wild pitch after wild pitch.
And I saw him pitch tonight against Philadelphia where he threw 2 wild pitches in 1/3 of an inning.
He has some good numbers but whenever I see him, he looks like Nuke LaLoosh before Crash Davis arrived.
Maybe I should stop watching his games.
