Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – July 3, 2013

On Today’s episode of  The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast, I took a journey… from Cisco and San Jose (where the A’s SHOULD be playing) through Fremont (one of the potential homes of the A’s) right to the parking lot of the O.co Coliseum.

Along the way I talk about why it would have been better if the A’s had stayed in Philadelphia and the Phillies had moved and all the potential landing spots of this exciting if troubled franchise.

Yasel Puig, Kendrys Morales, John Lackey and for his second no hitter, Homer Bailey all owned baseball on July 2, 2013.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – July 2, 2013


John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail that “the Second Day of July 1776 will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. . . . It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.

He was close.

But today on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast we celebrate July 2nd by remembering Warren Spahn’s duel with Juan Marichal, say happy birthday to Jose Canseco and remember Peanuts Lowrey, a man with an unusual life story.

Todd Frazier, Robinson Cano, R. A. Dickey and Jose Fernandez all owned baseball on July 1, 2013.

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for July 2, 2013)

Last season had a flurry of no hitters, ending with Homer Bailey’s gem that eliminated the Pirates from contention.

This season has been filled with one near miss after another, including close calls from Yu Darvish and Anibal Sanchez.

When would the first no hitter of 2013 be thrown? 

I guess only Homer Bailey is allowed to throw no-nos now.

He threw a gem with only one walk against the punchless Giants and joined the likes of Roy Halladay and Mark Buehrle as a pitcher with multiple no hitters.

Here is the updated list.

The Padres are still looking for their first one. And it would be nice to simplify the list with the Nationals having a no hitter instead of including the Expos and Senators.

When will the NEXT no hitter be thrown?
Well when is Homer Bailey next scheduled to pitch?
