Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Before yesterday, when was the last time the Yankees used five pitchers in one inning?
Today Miami had 7 stolen bases and only 1 run. That's the first time since 1918 a team has had at least 7 stolen bases and at most 1 run.
The Yankees are on a streak of ten consecutive games where neither team scored more than 6 runs and seven consecutive games where neither team scored more than 5 runs. When was the last time each of those things happened?
Now that the Yankees have Ichiro Suzuki on the team, they have three players with 2500+ career hits:
is this a first for MLB?
Tim Lincecum leads the NL with 8 losses.

You would have to have studied the Baseball Encyclopedia with the zeal of a biblical scholar to know of Bob Kammeyer, but he's in there, right between Scott Kamieniecki and Ike Kamp.
http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA195609290.shtml says the Yankees used 26 players in a game in 1956.
Zach Greinke started 3 consecutive games for the Brewers. It was a bit odd as he was ejected after 2 pitches on Saturday, started the game on Sunday then the Crew had 4 days off for the ASB and he satrted on Friday so 3 consecutive games.
When was the last time a pitcher started a teams 3 consecutive games?
Yankees play two home games on Friday the 13th this season.
Both games are against the same team. (Angels)
Both games are started by the same Yankees pitcher (Kuroda)
Yankees won 5-0 back in April so I hope we get the same result tonight.
I looked at http://www.baseball-reference.com/friv/coffee.shtml and the four most recent players with exactly one MLB game who I recognized as Yankees were all pitchers:
Adam Warren in 2012
Steve Garrison in 2011
Sam Marsonek in 2004
Christian Parker in 2001
Who was the last Yankee to win at least 16 games in each of his first two career seasons (starting with a player's rookie season even if he made his MLB debut before that)? Ivan Nova will hopefully reach 16 wins for the second consecutive season. Chien-Ming Wang had 19 wins in each of his first two full seasons (2006 and 2007) but he doesn't count because in 2005 he had 8 wins and too many innings for him to be a rookie in 2006. I looked at Andy Pettitte, but he only won 12 games his rookie...
When I was younger my father took me to a Yankees game and told me it was Old Timers day, he doesn't recall when it was or which Old Timers were present, The Pictures I dug up showed they faced the Royals and the game I estimate took place in either 88' or 89'. Does anyone here remember when that was and who was there?.
Roger Maris earned and deserves more credit than he receives from many.
What would have happened if the DH started in 1965 instead of 1973?
This has been bugging me for a few days, I thought of the question during Cain's game because he actually had a couple of hits. Giving him more hits in the game than hits allowed.
So my question is has any pitcher in history ever ended a season with more hits than hits allowed? That seems like a damn good accomplishment. I can't find it.
Thanks to three errors in a span of four batters, Jon Rauch became the first pitcher since 1918 (possibly the first time ever) to allow at least 4 runs in a game on 0 hits and at most 1 walk. I'm also wondering how many times before that inning a team has committed two three-base errors in one inning.
Before Sabathia and Dickey tonight, when was the last day two New York pitchers (any combination of Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, and Giants as long as the team was in New York at the time) pitched complete games at home? The Yankees and Mets are rarely both at home.
What's the oldest age at which a pitcher has won his first Cy Young award? Can 37 year old R.A. Dickey break the record if he wins it?
