Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Last night the Cubs allowed 7 runs to the Reds, all unearned.
What is the most unearned runs a team has allowed in a game without allowing an earned run?
Before Justin Verlander today who was the last pitcher to throw 127 or more pitches in a game against the Yankees?
I have this picture, it's an autographed and dated rookie photograph of Nolan Ryan. It was something my mom bought over 25 years ago from sports memorabilia store. I don't know if this stuff is allowed in this section but I have a few questions.
Is it worth go to get it authenticated? Is it worth anything? It's going to hang on my wall if that matters, not gonna be sold.
Yes, it's now a half-century since Roger Eugene Maris broke the single-season baseball home-run record by Babe Ruth. A record he holds to this day (the 3 steroid-stooges notwithstanding) in my opinion. A year I recall, as both he and Mickey Mantle, the M&M boys, pursued the goal of 61 neck-and-neck until September when The Mick got sick. Although The Mick was my ultimate baseball "hero", Roger was a close second. As I look at my Roger Maris baseball glove I got after that record-breaking...
June 19, 2001 in a 7-1 loss at Detroit. Of the 12 Yankees used in that game, Jeter and Alfonso Soriano are the only ones who are still active.
Today Cliff Lee had 16 strikeouts, 9 hits allowed, and 7 inning pitched. He's the only pitcher in 1919 or later to have that many strikeouts and that many hits allowed in that few innings.
Today the Yankees allowed 6 runs on 4 hits and 1 walk. It was only the second time in 1919 or later that a team allowed at least 6 runs, at most 4 hits, and at most 1 walk in a game. The previous time was in 1983.
In honor of the High Holy Day (Yom Kippur), what better time to appreciate the (relatively small) contribution that the Jewish people have contributed to the National Pastime? So, here's my inital ballot...I know there are a number of Jews on this board so let's hear your thoughts! Gentiles are welcome to contribute too ;)

Today Washington had 2 hits, 9 walks, and were hit by 3 pitches. It was only the sixth time in 1919 or later that a team had at least 14 times on base with at most 2 hits. It was also the nineteenth time in 1919 or later that a team had at least 1 hit and had more hit by pitches than hits.

Before Sabathia, Burnett, and Colon in our last five games when was the last time the Yankees had three starts of 8 or more innings in a five game span?
