  1. Pitcher to start 3 consecutive games?

    Zach Greinke started 3 consecutive games for the Brewers. It was a bit odd as he was ejected after 2 pitches on Saturday, started the game on Sunday then the Crew had 4 days off for the ASB and he satrted on Friday so 3 consecutive games. When was the last time a pitcher started a teams 3 consecutive games?

  2. Friday the 13th, What are the odds of this happening?

    Yankees play two home games on Friday the 13th this season. Both games are against the same team. (Angels) Both games are started by the same Yankees pitcher (Kuroda) Yankees won 5-0 back in April so I hope we get the same result tonight.

  3. Who Was The Most Recent Yankee Hitter To Play In Exactly One MLB Game?

    I looked at http://www.baseball-reference.com/friv/coffee.shtml and the four most recent players with exactly one MLB game who I recognized as Yankees were all pitchers: Adam Warren in 2012 Steve Garrison in 2011 Sam Marsonek in 2004 Christian Parker in 2001

  4. Who Was The Last Yankee To Win At Least 16 Games In Each Of His First Two Seasons?

    Who was the last Yankee to win at least 16 games in each of his first two career seasons (starting with a player's rookie season even if he made his MLB debut before that)? Ivan Nova will hopefully reach 16 wins for the second consecutive season. Chien-Ming Wang had 19 wins in each of his first two full seasons (2006 and 2007) but he doesn't count because in 2005 he had 8 wins and too many innings for him to be a rookie in 2006. I looked at Andy Pettitte, but he only won 12 games his rookie...

  5. question about an Old Timers date

    When I was younger my father took me to a Yankees game and told me it was Old Timers day, he doesn't recall when it was or which Old Timers were present, The Pictures I dug up showed they faced the Royals and the game I estimate took place in either 88' or 89'. Does anyone here remember when that was and who was there?.

  10. Pitcher who ended season with more hits than hits allowed?

    This has been bugging me for a few days, I thought of the question during Cain's game because he actually had a couple of hits. Giving him more hits in the game than hits allowed. So my question is has any pitcher in history ever ended a season with more hits than hits allowed? That seems like a damn good accomplishment. I can't find it.

  11. The Mets' Jon Rauch Just Did Something For The First Time Since 1918

    Thanks to three errors in a span of four batters, Jon Rauch became the first pitcher since 1918 (possibly the first time ever) to allow at least 4 runs in a game on 0 hits and at most 1 walk. I'm also wondering how many times before that inning a team has committed two three-base errors in one inning.

  12. Two New York Pitchers Pitching Complete Games At Home On The Same Day

    Before Sabathia and Dickey tonight, when was the last day two New York pitchers (any combination of Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, and Giants as long as the team was in New York at the time) pitched complete games at home? The Yankees and Mets are rarely both at home.

  15. A Yankee First?

    With Jamie Moyer now in the minors I believe the Yankees are the only team ever to have the active Major League leaders in Hits (Jeter), HRs (A Rod) and Victories (Pettitte) on the same team.

  16. 1995 Playoffs Question

    Why did the Yankees play the Mariners in the Division Series and not the Indians? The Indians had the best record in the league and using today's format would have played the Yankees. I don't remember how the playoffs worked backed then.

  17. Most Consecutive No Decisions By A Starter

    The Mets tied the game, so Kyle Lohse of St. Louis will get his fifth consecutive no decision. Pinch-hitting for Lohse turned out be a bad move because the pinch-hitter struck out and Lohse had allowed only 1 run in 6 innings with only 76 pitches.

  19. DiMaggio or Williams in '41?

    Just getting back to the forum and am asking the question that I originally joined to ask 2 years back. I was having a heated argument on the issue with a friend and wanted more opinions. I still do! I'm not an American League fan so I think my opinion is unbiased. My vote is for Ted and if there is any interest on this topic I will give my reasons. Thanx
