  1. Further Statistical Praise for DiMaggio's Streak

    FiveThirtyEight recently ran an article about how unlikely it would be for someone to top Ken Jennings' streak of winning 74 games of Jeopardy in a row. Today they went one step further to compare that to Joe D's 56 game streak. Long story short, we're likely to see a Ken Jennings' type run on Jeopardy every 25 years, but the likelyhood of someone topping DiMaggio is way smaller. 7% chance every 15 years, or maybe once in 200 years. ...

  3. Help nominate Yogi Berra for the "Presidential Medal of Freedom!

    http://yogiberramuseum.org/vote-for-yogi-for-the-presidential-medal-of-freedom-2/ I hope the above link works; otherwise go to The Yogi Berra Museum site..I think he is a much deserving man and not because of being a NY Yankee but for the sacrifice he made for our country. Every vote counts :P

  5. Rinaldo Ardizoia, Oldest Living Yankee

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/28/sports/baseball/rinaldo-ardizoia-the-oldest-living-yankee-reflects-on-his-career.html?ref=sports&_r=0 I had never heard his name before, but he seems like a great guy. Makes you wonder what kind of career he could have had if not for the war.

  6. Great Yankee pix

    An original Brooklyn Dodgers fan, who'd seen them in their glory days, posted these on another board. I figured I'd share. :) Yes, some of them are large, so please be patient if you've got an older PC + slow connection. Anyway, I think that some of these are irresistible, and here they are in no particular order: Site of Yankee Staduim 1922 Construction begins 1922

  7. Al Rosen Has Passed Away

    Former Yankee President (late seventies?) Al Rosen has died. Al was a third baseman for the Cleveland Indians in the 1950s, including the one year they went to the World Series. He was AL MVP in 1953 with 43 homers. He missed the triple crown in 1952 by one percentage point in his batting average. Great player, and one of the greatest Jewish major leaguers. Born on Leap Day in 1924, he passed away on Friday. RIP

  8. How many hits in a 9 inning game - and still not score a run?

    Probably an easy one for this crowd. I coached amateur ball for many years and always asked the players this question. No one ever got it.

  9. Pitcher Teammates Getting MVP Votes In The Same Year

    In 1996, Rivera and Wetteland got MVP votes. What other times if any did two or more teammates who were relievers get MVP votes? Those two and Pettitte got MVP votes. What other times if any did three or more pitcher teammates get MVP votes? Rivera and Pettitte were the top two Yankees in the 1996 MVP voting. What other times if any did a team's top two MVP vote getters be pitchers?

  15. Negative RD, Winning record 2 years in a row?

    The Yankees are 80-75 with a minus 31 run differential. If they win 2 more games they are assured of a winning record on the season. Last year they were 85-77 with a negative 21 run differential. When is the last time a team had negative run differential 2 years in a row, but had a winning record both years?

    Would it still be considered a perfect game if no runners reached base, however there was an error where say the first baseman drops a pop up in foul ground to extend an at bat?

  18. Most Consecutive Seasons With The Same Record

    After his loss today, David Huff is 3-1. He was 3-1 in 2012 and 2013, so he has a chance at having the same record for three consecutive years. What pitchers have had the same record for the most consecutive years? I'm not making a minimum number of decisions or innings, but the record cannot be 0-0.
