The BBA has gone over a nice makeover in the last 3 months – and I am happy to be the newly elected president for it. 

In addition to 5 years of pro blogging and owning the mlbreports.com – I have four different world records when it comes to hitting up baseball parks.  I hold the World Record for going to all 30 MLB Parks in 23 calendar days during April of 2012.

I also went to a World Record 224 MLB Games in the 2015 Calendar year.  I have watched at least 5 games in all 30 MLB Parks.  (more…)

NL To Eliminate The DH Or Not? Fan Voting Poll

Rob Manfred has shown an aptitude to make drastic changes in the sports since taking over as the Commissioner a year ago in the MLB. The new agenda is to have both the American League and National League playing by the same rules. Purists will hate the adopting the DH, as is their disdain for the Designated Hitter in the AL. They will say they should eliminate that position. different solution.

They will say they should eliminate that position to have both leagues equal. I offer a 3rd alternative. NO DH or pitcher hitting.  Make sure you take part in our poll at the end of the blog post.

I have to admit Rob Manfred is at least taking charge at the helm of the MLB.  Uniformity of both the American League and the National League may be implemented as early at 2017 – following the CBA talks after the 2016 season.

That is right, The Designated Hitter may be introduced in the NL as early as next year.

If Manfred calls for an equalization schedule of all 30 MLB teams playing a level amount of games against their own league and divisions next – I will anoint him the best “Commissioner ever.  Hopefully this would be the next step.

Since the progressive leader has made some radical changes in his infancy at the top, like fast play, blackout removals, one fee for individualized teams on MLB.TV – I am hoping he can eradicate team fatigue next.

One of the best cases to made for both the Senior and Junior Circuits to both have the same rules is the recent destruction the AL has done to the National League.  They have a 12 year winning streak in Interleague play – with a whopping .550 win percentage in that time from 2004 – 2015. (more…)

Yoenis Cespedes is coming back to the Mets, at least for 2016. The goodwill that will buy for the Mets is worth every penny.

Plus I beat the hell out of a spider in Burbank.

Good times in Flushing for this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
