Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
The Yankees have 5 home runs and 5 stolen bases tonight for the first time in team history and eighth time in MLB history in 1919 or later.
Edit: Before today the previous team to do it was Texas on June 30, 2009.
Jeff Weaver (0.92) and Dan Haren (0.98) both have WHIPs below 1.00. Only two pairs of teammates have done that in the 101 years from 1910 to 2010 (two pairs each did it in 1909 and 1908 and one pair did it in 1907). Pedro Martinez and Derek Lowe did it in 2002 and Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale did it in 1964.
What's the worst batting average by a player after a game in which he had his team's only hit? Philadelphia's Cole Hamels was batting .160 after he had Philadelphia's only hit in their 1-0 loss at the Mets on August 13, 2010. Among non-pitchers, Tampa Bay's Reid Brignac is batting .174 after having his team's only hit against Josh Beckett tonight.
What's the most batters ever in one MLB half inning?
Yanks Beat The White Sox
CC Sabathia did this with the Indians in 2007, Brewers in 2008 (I know he was traded during the season), and Yankees in 2009. Has anybody else done this?
Who was the last Yankee to pitch 9 or more innings in consecutive starts? Who was the last Yankee to pitch 8 or more innings in three consecutive starts? Sabathia has been economical so far today and is trying to do this.
Edit: Sabathia pitched 8 innings today to make it three consecutive starts of 8 innings or more. He also pitched 8 innings each on June 20, June 25, and July 1 of last year. Who was the Yankee before him to pitch 8 or more innings in three consecutive starts?
I ask this because Triple-A Colorado Springs scored 13 in the fifth inning of a 24-6 win today. Three Colorado Springs pitchers pitched three innings each and because the last pitcher went three innings he got a save. Texas defeated Baltimore 30-3 in 2007 in a game with a save and Texas scored 10 in their biggest inning.
The White Sox's 44 year old Omar Vizquel moved from second base to first base today to play first base for the first time in his career. He doesn't have any hits as a first baseman yet because he is 0-for-6 so far with the game 8-8 in the 13th inning.
When was the last year the MLB ERA was below 4.00? It hasn't happened in the 2000s before this season. In 2000 every team had an ERA above 4.00.
Interesting article here:
Yesterday the Yankees had 7 runs, 4 home runs, and 7 baserunners (0 left on base). It was only the second time in 1919 or later that a team had at least 7 runs, at least 4 home runs, and only 7 baserunners in a game. The previous time was by an NL team in 1999.
Looking for Yankees Indians tickets, pleas let me know if you have any
I was just watching MLBN's tribute to Killebrew. It was stated that he got in the HOF on the fourth try. HOW in the world could a player with his stats not be inducted on his first ballot?
Last night's game made me wonder the following:
1. Who was the last Yankee to pitch a complete game shutout?
2. Who was the last Yankee to pitch a complete game shutout and win 1-0?
3. When was the last Yankee game in which neither team scored an earned run? This looked possible going to the bottom of the ninth.
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...
