  1. Five Teammates With 3 Strikeouts In A Game

    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.

  2. Lineups Without Any Righties

    Other than today's Yankees lineup, can anybody find a box score where a team's nine hitters were all lefties or switch-hitters?

  3. 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?

  6. 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.

  11. Jerry Coleman, RIP

    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. http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=colemje01

  12. Paul Blair has passed away

    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. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/blairpa01.shtml

    Sabathia and Hughes both have an ERA of exactly 4 10/11 (4.91 rounded, it's a repeating decimal). Does anybody know if teammates with enough innings to qualify have ever had exactly the same the ERA?

    Hiroki Kuroda, the Yankees ERA leader, has a worse winning percentage than Jeremy Hellickson, who has the worst ERA in the AL. Does anybody know if there has ever been a year where the Yankees ERA leader had a worse winning percentage than the pitcher with the worst ERA in the AL?

  18. Possible Yankees record set.

    The Yankees won all 10 games played at the Stadium against Toronto this season. This has never happened before since the 162 game schedule was instituted. The 1927 Yankees were 10-1 at home against the St. Louis Browns. That season the Yankees were also 11-0 at St. Louis against the Browns.

  19. Mauer ties Clarke

    Friday night Joe Mauer broke up Sanchez's no-hitter in the ninth inning. Its the third time that Mauer has broken up a no-hitter in the ninth inning in his career. He also did it in 2008 and 2010. He thus became the first player to break up three ninth inning no-hitters in his career since Horace Clarke did it in 1970. What made Clarke's feat amazing was that all three of the no-hitters he broke up came within a 1 month period from June 17 to July 2,1970.
