It is a “Truth is WAY stranger than fiction” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast
Please enjoy Peter Lemongello and his Love 76 commercial.
And please enjoy Mark Lemongello losing his damn mind.
Nathan Eovaldi, Jeff Locke, Miguel Cabrera, Jean Segura, Julio Teheran, Michael Saunders and Jeremy Hazelbaker all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.
