  2. Pitchers Who Were 1 Out Away From A Win In Their MLB Debut Before A Blown Save

    What starting pitchers left their MLB debuts with a chance to get a win, were still able to get a win when their team was 1 out away from winning, but did not get a win because a reliever blew the save? On June 2, 2015, Mike Montgomery made his MLB debut with Seattle. Montgomery allowed 1 run in 6 innings to the Yankees. The teams scored 1 run each in the third. Seattle scored 1 in the bottom of the sixth, which was after Montgomery's last pitch, but since nobody else had pitched for...

It also has an article about Tino Martinez, 57 short answers by John Wetteland (he said "I've got a problem with the DH rule"), the rosters for the Yankees and Tigers, a list of every MLB teams' pitchers (but not hitters), a list of the Yankees employees, information about the Yankees' minor league...

  5. Rookies Hitting Back-To-Back Home Runs

    In the Top of the First Inning at the Mets against Logan Verrett, rookies Ryan Schimpf and Jabari Blash hit back-to-back home runs. Schimpf's home run made tonight his first career game with at least 4 RBI, so it was his first career grand slam. Does anybody know of another time when rookies hit back-to-back home runs? Edit: Schimpf hit a two run home run, making him the first player in over a year to have at least 2 home runs and at least 6 RBI in a game against the Mets. It's the first...

  6. Worst Games By A Pitcher Who Didn't Get A Loss In A Game His Team Lost

    On June 10, 2005, Zach Greinke allowed 11 of the 12 runs Kansas City allowed, and Kansas City lost, but Greinke wasn't the losing pitcher. Kansas City came back from down 11-2 to tie the game at 11. In the bottom of the tenth, Arizona won walk-off 12-11 against Mike MacDougal. Does anybody know of another pitcher who allowed 11/12ths or more of the runs his team allowed in a game his team lost without getting the loss?

  7. Players Whose Only Career Win Was In Their MLB Debut

    On September 29, 1993, Kenny Greer made his MLB debut with the Mets and got the win. It was his only career win, only game in 1993, and only career game with the Mets. Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) adds or subtracts a constant to make the average FIP equal the average ERA. Greer did not allow any baserunners in his inning in 1993, and http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/greerke01.shtml has him with an FIP of -1.01. Obviously it is impossible to have an ERA of -1.01.

  10. Teams With Nobody In The Top 100 In MLB In RBI

    After trading Beltran, the Yankees leader in RBI is Didi Gregorius, who has 43, which puts him tied for 101st in MLB. Beltran had 64 RBI with the Yankees, which would put a player tied for 95th last year, so only counting his RBI with the Yankees he could still finish in the Top 100. Do you know of any teams who finished the season without anybody in the Top 100 in MLB in RBI? A player who left the team during the season is excluded regardless of how many RBI he got with that team. A player...

  11. Who am I?

    I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country. I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed. Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out...

  18. The 1912 world series

    In the 1912 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Giants four games to three (with one tie). This dramatic series showcased great pitching from Giant Christy Mathewson and from Boston fireballer Smoky Joe Wood. Wood won two of his three starts and pitched in relief in the final game. In the deciding game, Boston rallied for two runs in the tenth inning thanks to two costly Giants fielding misplays. Nearly all of the games were close. Four games in this Series were decided by...

  20. Joe DiMaggio wearing a 9 on jersey?!

    Please help me out...I recently found an old "Baseball Magazine" from May 1938. On the cover is a picture of Joe D, with a NY pinstripe jersey w/ Number 9. I know Maris retired number 9. Maris also played from 1960-66, way after this magazine was published... what is going on? Did Joe wear 9 for one season or what ? Who else could have worn 9 on May 1938? Is this just an error?
