  1. Winning A Cy Young Award Before Pitching A Complete Game

    Two days ago, Max Scherzer pitched a shutout which was his first career complete game. On September 1, 2010 he pitched 9 innings of a game that went 10 innings. Other than him, does anybody know of a pitcher who won a Cy Young Award before pitching a complete game?

  3. Players Who Were All-Stars In Their Worst Season

    Mark Buehrle was an All-Star in 2006 when he finished with a 4.99 ERA. That's by far his worst season. His next worst ERA was 4.28 in 2010. In 2006 he had a 4.02 ERA before the All-Star break and a 6.44 ERA after the All-Star break. Does anybody know of another player who was an All-Star in his worst season?

  7. Most Consecutive Hits To End A Half Inning Excluding Walkoffs

    On May 27, 2005, the Yankees' Randy Johnson allowed hits to the last five Red Sox in the top of the sixth. The last two hits resulted in outs at home. There was one out when the five hits started. I checked to see if I started a topic about this right after that game. It turns out that was the day I joined this forum.

  9. Jimmy Rollins, and Are There Any Hall of Fame Hitters Who Never Batted .300?

    In an ESPN Poll, 44% think Jimmy Rollins is a Hall of Famer. Rollins has never batted .300 except for 2000 when he had 53 at-bats before his rookie season in 2001, and he won't have a special home run or RBI total. Rollins has an OPS+ of only 96 on baseball-reference. With 2,175 hits at age 35, I doubt he will reach 3,000 hits. I hope fewer than 44% of the Hall of Fame voters vote for him. So what Hall of Famers (if any) never batted .300 and what Hall of Famers have the worst career...

  15. Has A Team Ever Had Four Outfielders Who Had Already Had A Season With 40+ SBs?

    The 2014 Yankees could have Ichiro Suzuki, Alfonso Soriano, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Brett Gardner as outfielders who have already had at least one season with at least 40 stolen bases. Has any team ever had four outfielders like that before?

  18. Johnny Kucks

    I just found out that Johnny Kucks died at the age of 81. He didn't have a great career, but I do remember him winning the seventh game of the World Series against the Dodgers in 1956 with a shutout. Of course, that was right after Larson's perfect game and Kucks didn't get the fame that he deserved. How many of you old timers remember him? May he rest in peace.
