I recorded The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast at the Willie Mays statue in front of AT&T Park in San Francisco. There was no Giants game. I just felt like going there.
I talked about the transition from April to May in baseball and wondered what being in first place at the end of April means.
Edwin Encarncion, Justin Verlander, Rickie Weeks and Jaime Garcia owned baseball on April 30, 2013.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – May 1, 2013
I was reading through some old posts of mine and I checked out the Mets Home Grown vs. Acquired entry I did back in December of 2008.
For whatever reason it is my most read post ever. And had the most spirited debate in the comments section.
And I noticed something interesting. I pointed out that I felt that Billy Wagner’s injury caused the Mets to overpay for Frankie Rodriguez and J. J. Putz.
And I was consistent in that analysis because I felt buyers should beware of K-Rod and I felt Putz was nothing special. Evidently not everyone agreed with me.
Well let’s just say I got some nasty e mails and some anonymous posts from angry Met fans.
My favorite ones:
overpay for rodriguez and putz>….wow, you really are red sox fan cause you have no clue what you’re talking about.
you have to be a putz to say they over payed for putz, and k-rod for that matter.
Now, my basic Mets’ prayer has been answered: we picked up KRod and JJ,
I can’t help but wonder where those critics are now.
How do you like K-Rod beating up the elderly?
Or Putz pitching so badly that the Mets gave up on him after a year.
I wonder if I still don’t know what I am talking about… being a Red Sox fan and all.
Ah well… enough gloating.
