  1. Two New York Teams Both Having Home Games Rained Out The Same Day

    Before today, when was the last time (if ever) two New York teams (Yankees and Mets, Yankees and Dodgers, Dodgers and Giants, I don't care what pair) both had scheduled home games rained out the same day? Rain outs when the Yankees and Mets were scheduled to play each other don't count. On another note, is there a site that has the original and actual date of postponed games going back many years?

  2. Game 6 of 1977 World Series on ESPN Classics

    FYI - ESPN Classics is showing Game 6 of the 1977 World Series right now where Reggie Jackson hit three homeruns (off the first pitch each time). It's almost over but ESPN Classics will be showing it several more times.

  3. Is Billy Wagner A Hall Of Famer? and Comparison To Rivera

    Billy Wagner has a career strikeout rate of 11.92 per 9 innings which is by far the most in MLB history among pitchers with at least 900 innings. The next best is 10.61 and eight pitchers have at least 9 per 9 innings. Wagner's career WHIP is 0.998 which is almost as good as Rivera's 0.996. Rivera has a 2.22 career ERA and Wagner has a 2.31. Wagner has a slightly better K/BB, 3.99 to 3.95. Rivera has significantly more innings and saves. From 2002 on when blown saves started being kept...

  5. Pitchers Allowing 4 Home Runs and Beating The Yankees

    Twice in our last 12 regular season games going back to last season the opposing starter (Scherzer today and Beckett in September) allowed 4 home runs and got a win anyway. Before Beckett you have to go over five years back for the previous opposing starter to do it, Bartolo Colon.

  9. Most important event in New York Yankees history?

    What if Ruth doesn't come to New York. Does Yankee Stadium even get built? More importantly we in Chicago ponder the deal that Charles Comiskey agreed to and then got cold feet - Shoeless Joe Jackson to Boston for Ruth. Bill Veeck found the paperwork in 1976. Ruth never would have become the megastar in Chicago simply because old Comiskey was not homer friendly.

  13. Was this the strangest Yankees loss ever?

    It was the last game the Yankees ever played at Comiskey Park in 1990 http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/1990/B07010CHA1990.htm I know 1990 is not a year NYY fans care to remember but have the Yankees ever had a stranger loss than this?

  15. Old Yankee Road Uniform.....................

    I think the "old" Yankee road uniform with simply the navy blue "New York" looks so much better than the one used for the last 20-25 years with the white edging around the blue "New York." I'm a uniform nut! I know it is trivial to most but this is the site for me to bring it up? Any thoughts?

  16. How the New York JETS helped save Fenway Park from the wrecking ball

    I stumbled across this blog yesterday and it gives a fascinating look back to a AFL game in 1966 between the Boston Patriots and NY Jets that had the Patriots won, the team may have gotten a new retractable roof stadium in downtown Boston with the Red Sox. http://bythebanksoftherivercharles.blogspot.com/2011/01/yesterday-was-not-pats-worse-loss-to.html It includes a picture of the proposed stadium. It also links to amazing footage of that 1966 game. The blogger wrote

  17. Game 7 of1960 World Series

    This is being broadcast tonight on MLB network. A kinescope taken from Bing Crosby's cellar of what some call the greatest baseball game of all time the last game of the 1960 World series. It is unbelievably interesting.

  18. MLB Network to showcase the 2003 Season

    MLB network will be showcasing the 2003 Season. Another one of those seasons that drives me nuts. We staged an amazing comeback in game 7 of the 2003 ALCS series...only to watch as Torre bungled game 4 and us get beaten in games 5 and 6. The Marlins celebrating on our field...UGH. The luster of Aaron Boone's homerun is hurt by the fact he and Moose couldn't get rings and the fact all the taunting we could give Boston ended the following year. On the other hand, it could be worse. It's also...

  20. Scoring a Runner Struck by Batted Ball?

    I was looking back on some of the games I've been to in the last couple of years, and came across the last inning of the June 17th, 2010 game against the Phillies. The final out of the top of the 9th was recorded by Raul Ibaņez being struck by Ben Francisco's batted ball. The question is -- how would you write that on a scorecard? I've been digging around on Google and can't find much of anything. Thoughts?
