Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
do you guys know where I could find the 1952 world series leather/wool varsity jacket. this jacket was worn by jay z last year during game 2 of the ws. It is made by g111. tHey make the majority of the other yankee commerative championship jackets.:P
I looked at the Yankees, Twins, and Rays remaining schedules and I could see them all finishing about 98-64 with a three way tie for the best record in baseball. The NL could hypothetically have all four playoff teams with the same record. At least one team that is currently within 2 games of the best record in the NL will miss the playoffs since there are five of those teams.
Who was the last team (if it has ever happened before) to have three pitchers with 1 inning per team game and an ERA under 3.00? Chris Carpenter is third on St. Louis with a 2.90 ERA as of now.
Just a work in progress. It'll take some time, so please contribute if you can.
Only eight Yankees before this season and never more than once in a season has a Yankee had enough innings to qualify and an ERA of 5.00 or worse. Now A.J. Burnett (5.15 ERA, 157 1/3 innings) and Javier Vazquez (5.01 ERA, 143 2/3 innings) could become the first pair of Yankees to do that the same season.
With Wang (2006 and 2007), Mussina (2008), and Sabathia (2009 and 2010), the Yankees have had a pitcher win at least 19 games for five consecutive years. Pettitte (2000 and 2003), Clemens (2001), and Wells (2002) gave the Yankees a four year streak earlier in the 2000s. No other team has had a four or more year streak like that in the 2000s. Before the Yankees, the previous team to have a pitcher with at least 19 wins for at least five consecutive years was Atlanta for six years from 1995 to...
Babe Ruth only won 1 MVP award and that was in 1923.
He hit .356-60-164 in 1927 and didn't receive one vote. Lou Gehrig, who deservingly won it 27, had a pretty good year himself.
It wasn't until 1931 before Babe Ruth even received any MVP votes.
In 1926, George Burns won it with .358-4-114-97 runs. Ruth hit.372-47-146-139 runs.
In 1928, Micky Cochrane won it with .293-10-57-92 runs. Ruth hit .323-54-142 with an amazing 163 runs.
Who was the last Yankee to have at least 19 wins in consecutive seasons? Sabathia could do that.
Before Eduardo Nunez today, who were the last player and last Yankee to get their first career home run and first career stolen base in the same game?
It seemed like this was the best place to post this link to Mr. Herbert's great column:
I loved how Herbert's father explained that Hank Thompson and Bobby Thomson were not related--a great and wise answer. The comments are full of great baseball memories from readers, too.
If anyone has there own baseball/family memories to share, please do!
Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, and Robinson Cano could all finish Top 10 in MLB in RBI. In 2005 the Yankees came close with Rodriguez fourth, Gary Sheffield sixth, and Hideki Matsui tied for eleventh 1 RBI behind a tie for eighth, ninth, and tenth. Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, and Tino Martinez of Seattle in 1995 were the last trio of teammates to do that. It probably was more common when there were less teams.
Joba Chamberlain, Boone Logan, Kerry Wood, Chad Gaudin, and Mariano Rivera threw 12 pitches each tonight. Does anybody know if a team has ever had five pitchers throw the same number of pitches in a game before?
A.J. Burnett is below .500 and it's possible he and Javier Vazquez will both finish below .500 with enough innings to qualify (162). The last Yankee to finish below .500 with enough innings to qualify was Orlando Hernandez in 2000. The last time two Yankees did it was Jim Abbott and Melido Perez in 1993.
What's the most times a team has shutout one opponent in one season? I ask because the Mets have shutout the Phillies in half of the eight games so far this season.
The Shot Heard Round The World
From August 9 to August 13, the Yankees just played five consecutive games decided by 1 run. The previous time the Yankees did that was August 8 through August 12, 2005. Both sets of games included exactly two games vs. Texas.
I'm a military member serving overseas and can't get on the internet as much as I would like but I was wondering if the Yankee jersey's with the memorial patches are going to be released to the public for sale. Anyone know if they are and where I could purchase one?
Berkman, Teixeira and Posada all have hit over 250 home runs. Is this the first time a team had three switchhitters in the same lineup that had hit that many homers playing at the same time.
Also since Nick Swisher has hit over 150 home runs has one team ever had 4 switchitters with over 150 home runs playing in the same lineup.
Today in the bottom of the sixth hosting Detroit, Tampa Bay's Matt Joyce had the first hit of the game for either team and it was a grand slam. The three runners reached on two walks and a catcher's interference.
Before Jason Kendall today, who was the last catcher to steal two or more bases in a game against the Yankees?
