Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Stan Musial was an All-Star in his last 18 seasons from 1946 to 1963. Has anybody else been an All-Star for at least 18 consecutive seasons?
What's the closest in alphabetical order two teammates have ever been? Exclude two teammates with the same last name or with different spellings with the same pronunciation such as Hernandes and Hernandez. Chad Green and Didi Gregorius are very close.
Chad Green made his MLB debut at Arizona and pitched in relief against Detroit. He will be called up to pitch Sunday in San Diego so Sabathia doesn't have to run the bases. What other Yankees had their first two career starts at NL teams?
What players had the most seasons with the same value of a statistic? Ichiro Suzuki had four seasons with exactly 111 runs. Exclude small numbers such as if a player had many seasons with 0 triples.
Who holds the records for statistics like hits, home runs, RBI, and runs among players who played for multiple teams that season? Mark McGwire had 58 home runs and 123 RBI while playing for Oakland and St. Louis in 1997.
Including the All-Star break, the Yankees will not have a home game in the first 14 days of July. Excluding the offseason, what's the most consecutive days the Yankees have ever had without a home game?
In the 1912 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Giants four games to three (with one tie). This dramatic series showcased great pitching from Giant Christy Mathewson and from Boston fireballer Smoky Joe Wood. Wood won two of his three starts and pitched in relief in the final game. In the deciding game, Boston rallied for two runs in the tenth inning thanks to two costly Giants fielding misplays.
Nearly all of the games were close. Four games in this Series were decided by...
Jackie Mitchell, the only woman to ever strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, shakes their hand, 1931.
Please help me out...I recently found an old "Baseball Magazine" from May 1938. On the cover is a picture of Joe D, with a NY pinstripe jersey w/ Number 9. I know Maris retired number 9. Maris also played from 1960-66, way after this magazine was published... what is going on? Did Joe wear 9 for one season or what ? Who else could have worn 9 on May 1938? Is this just an error? Please help...
"Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth. I have been in ballparks for 17 years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans.
Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn't consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day? Sure, I'm lucky. Who wouldn't consider it an honor to have known Jacob Ruppert? Also, the builder...
For those of you too young to remember him, he was a very good relief pitcher for the Yankees in the early 1960's. In fact, in 1961 he had a 15 and 5 record and saved 29 games. Many of those saves were for Whitey Ford who probably would not have had over 20 wins that year without him. How many of you remember him or even saw him pitch?
This is a link to a baseball picture I once found.
Texas's Shawn Tolleson pitched five consecutive days from September 29 to October 3.
What's the most losses the Yankees have had against one team in any one season including that year's postseason?
Tonight the Yankees face rookie Carlos Rodon, who has 25 career games. His last 7 games were all starts and were against:
19. Los Angeles Angels
20. Los Angeles Angels
Teixeira could lead the Yankees in baseball-reference WAR and will not have enough plate appearances to qualify (3.1 per game). Does anybody know of a Yankee hitter who led the team in WAR without having enough plate appearances to qualify?
Paul O'Neill said he got hit by a knuckleball while playing for Cincinnati. Michael Kay incorrectly guessed that it was Tom Candiotti. I checked and O'Neill got hit 9 pitchers while with Cincinnati:
Mike Houston (of Houston in 1988)
Atlee Hammaker (of San Francisco in 1988)
Ken Hill (of St. Louis in 1989)
Tim Belcher (of Los Angeles in 1989)
Ricky Horton (of St. Louis in 1990)
Jeff Innis (of New York in 1990)
Chris Haney (of Montreal in 1991)
Greg Maddux (of Chicago in 1992)
Tonight Nick Rumbelow won his first career decision and J.R. Graham lost his first career decision.
Today Max Scherzer pitched a no hitter that was 1 strike away from a perfect game. The losing pitcher, Francisco Liriano, pitched a no hitter on May 3, 2011.
I found three former Yankees (that may not be all of them) who led a league but not MLB in saves:
Joe Borowski (AL leader with 45 in 2007, with Yankees September 18, 1997 to 1998)
Armando Benitez (tied for NL lead with 47 in 2004, with Yankees some of 2003)
Bob Wickman (tied for AL lead with 45 in 2005, with Yankees 1992 to some of 1996)
