Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Mike Trout has 4 already, so I want to know what the record is. Brady Anderson had 15 in 1996.
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...
Tonight David Phelps got his first career save three days after Shawn Kelley got his first career save.
you serious guys? greenies help with performance a great deal and bonds was by far the greater player.
Before Melky Cabrera today and the past two days, who was the last former Yankee to hit a home run in every game of a three game or longer series against the Yankees?
Yesterday Boston became the fourth team since 1914 (all of them since 1989) to have five pitchers with at least 3 strikeouts in a game. Clay Buchholz struck out out 3, Chris Capuano struck out 4, Brandon Workman struck out 3, Koji Uehara struck out 3, and Junichi Tazawa struck out 3.
Other than today's Yankees lineup, can anybody find a box score where a team's nine hitters were all lefties or switch-hitters?
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?
The great Iron Horse would be 110 years old today.
A true gentleman and one of baseball's greatest.

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.
would love to see Moose in the HOF !What does everyone here think? Is he qualified?
This is a fantastic collection of 18 photos from spring training 1961 featuring Mantle, Maris, Berra, Ford, Howard, Richardson, Turley, Kubek and Skowron with accompanying comments from Kubek. I'll post one here but be sure to take a look at the full collection.

I should mention that I got this link from Lindsay Berra's Twitter feed. Yogi's granddaughter...
Does anyone know where I might be able to find prints from the All American Girls Baseball League? I have a friend that is really wanting to get some to hang on the wall.
This Yankee great, who saw combat action in both World War II and the Korean War, was a second baseman for the Yankees in one of their greatest runs, from 1949 to 1957. He then went on to a great career as a sportscaster.
Thought of mostly as a Baltimore Oriole, Paul Blair was also a tremendous part of the late seventies Yankees. The brilliant defensive outfielder has passed away at the age of 69. Rest in peace, Paul.
Nick Punto signed with Oakland, and if that is the next MLB team he plays for, his first six career teams will be:
Philadelphia (NL East)
Minnesota (AL Central)
St. Louis (NL Central)
Boston (AL East)
Los Angeles Dodgers (NL West)
Oakland (AL West)
I see that Yogi Berra had 8,350 out of his 8,359 plate appearances with the Yankees for 99.89%. What other players have had the greatest percentage of their plate appearances or innings pitched with one team other than 100%?
Fascinating. From MLB via Chad Jennings at LoHud:
