Podcast: Five-year Hall, A-Gone, Yanks
Mark Simon and Steve Berthiaume hosted Friday's Baseball Today and among the fun discussions:
1. Did the Yankees really hit three grand slams in one game? That was awesome. But Phil Hughes wasn't.
2. Adrian Gonzalez has regained his power stroke but another Boston player has gone unnoticed this year.
3. Jim Thome heads back home to Cleveland.
4. Steve goads Mark into telling his story about meeting Dwight Gooden.
5. Speaking of Gooden, maybe we need a "five-year Hall of Fame," for guys who were awesome for five years.
Plus: The Giants, Kirk Gibson, Stephen Strasburg, why the Reds are great in WAR but possess a lousy record, plus much more!
