It is Sunday and man do I have a challenging Sunday Request!
Should the Giants do it?
Should the Red Sox pursue it?
It is a tougher decision than you would think when you consider how quickly closers flame out!
I take on the challenge on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Matt Garza, Casey McGehee, Chris Archer, Nelson Cruz, Homer Bailey, Yasiel Puig, Jose Quintana and Danny Valencia all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.
It is opening day!
That’s one of the happiest days of the year for any fan of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Of course this being opening day, the Dodgers already have three games in the books. On today’s episode, I come up with another Opening Day concept.
It could be a great idea based on one of the WORST ideas MLB ever had: The Baseball Network.
Andrew Cashner, Chris Denorfia and Hyun-Jin Ryu all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – March 31, 2014
The Giants have many talented relievers to fill Brian Wilson’s shoes as he will probably miss the rest of the season with elbow surgery. Santiago Castilla and Javier Lopez could get a shot to replace him.
But Sergio Romo needs to be the closer for at least the next few weeks.
He has a great strikeout per nine inning rate and you need someone who can strike out a batter to pitch the close innings.
Plus he doesn’t walk many. But that’s not why I think he should close.
He’s got a beard and a screw loose. And Giant fans need a closer with a beard and a screw loose. At least for a few minutes while they get used to a year without Wilson coming out of the pen.
