Joe Girardi will NEVER get the credit he deserves for a great managing job this year.
That and Sean Doolittle’s hospitality and Brandon Moss’ pizza on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Marcus Stroman, Matt Garza, Rene Rivera, Corey Kluber, Kole Calhoun, Aaron Harang, Jusin Upton and pizza man Brandon Moss all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

I was at the A’s game on Thursday. It was not exactly a nail biter. The A’s took an early lead and never looked back. Jeff Samardzija threw 8 strong and the Astros were clobbered 13-1. Neither a dodged bullet nor a teeth grinder.
But in the 6th inning, Brandon Moss clobbered a grand slam that turned a potentially interesting 4-1 game into an 8-1 lead. And everyone in the O.co Coliseum got a free pizza from Round Table.
And I guess this is my way of thanking Brandon Moss for the pizza.
It made for a fun day at the ballpark and took the sting out of the Red Sox terrible game and the close Giants loss in Philadelphia.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
39 Dodged Bullets 31 Teeth Grinders
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Tim Hudson did not allow an earned run in 6 innings. But a passed ball in the first and an error in the 5th led to both of Philadelphia’s runs and Cole Hamels took it the rest of the way for a 2-1 Giants loss. TEETH GRINDER
40 Dodged Bullets 32 Teeth Grinders
TOTAL: + 8
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
33 Dodged Bullets 40 Teeth Grinders
Dodgers and Giants play tomorrow. All the Round Table Pizza in the world won’t be able to make up for a loss there!
