The news this week is painfully obvious. And we at the “Call to the Bullpen” wanted to make sure it was handled properly with over an hour of content.

We discuss Felix Hernandez’s perfect game, John Jaso’s role, why perfect games are so common now, why they always happen to the Rays, and where this performance ranks with other famously pitched games.


From there we are joined by Tim Livingston to discuss Melky Cabrerra’s suspension, how he could win the batting title, Buster Posey’s MVP-caliber season, Brandon Belt’s hot bat, Tim Lincecum’s new approach, and the closer by committee situation.

Also on the show:

  • Is Bobby Valentine done in Boston?
  • Was he set up to fail?
  • Should the Nationals have a hard innings limit on Stephen Strasburg?
  • Will they change their minds?
  • The best and worst case scenarios for Washington.
  • Todd Frazier has been amazing
  • Edinson Volquez has been atrocious
  • Chase Headley: Power Hitter?
