Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
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.
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.
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.
Before the Mets' Jeremy Hefner tonight, who was the last pitcher to get his first career win and hit his first career home run in the same game?
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.
Hard to believe that half a century has gone by since this day in 1962.
I just saw the cover of the NY Post of April 21 2012...Has to be the best ever....Anybody have issue they would sell me? Thanks.
Yesterday Atlanta's Livan Hernandez got his first career save. He has 174 wins.
This post includes pitchers with enough innings to qualify. Right now Ryan Dempster leads MLB in ERA but is 0-1 while Clay Buchholz is last in MLB in ERA but is 4-1. Here are the winning percentages for the pitcher who was last in MLB in ERA in the past ten seasons:
2011: Brad Penny: 11-11 (.500), 5.30 ERA
2010: Jeremy Bonderman: 8-10 (.444), 5.53 ERA
2009: Livan Hernandez: 9-12 (.429), 5.44 ERA
2008: Nate Robertson: 7-11 (.389), 6.35 ERA
2007: Scott Olsen: 10-15 (.400), 5.81 ERA...
Watching the game last night, when it was mentioned by Kay or Leiter that Phelps had begun to make quicker pitches, it jogged my memory about a game 2 or 3 seasons ago when the opposition pitcher was called out by the umpire for NOT setting up long enuf & making a quick pitch.
I think the ump called a balk because of it - but I'm not positive. But I recall it raised the ire of the opposing manager.
I believe the specific game that I'm thinking about was against the Rays - but I could...
I'm looking for all pairs of teammates with at least 3,000 hits each (after both players reached the milestone). My dad suggested Paul Molitor and Robin Yount, but as of the end of 1992, the last season they were teammates, Molitor had only 2,281 while Yount had 3,025. Cal Ripken Jr. had 2,549 as of the end of 1996, the last season he was a teammate with Eddie Murray, who had 3,218 hits after 1996. Rodriguez has 2,778 hits and could reach 3,000 hits and 2013 and he and Jeter could do it. ...
What pitchers faced Jeter and another hitter after they reached 3,000 hits? Before Jeter, the most recent players to retire with 3,000+ hits were Paul Molitor (last year was 1998), Cal Ripken Jr. (last year was 2001), and Tony Gwynn (last year was 2001). Bruce Chen faced Jeter yesterday and faced Gwynn after he got 3,000 hits.
What's the most extra inning strikeouts by a pitcher in a game (the pitcher could have pitched in the first nine innings but any strikeouts there don't count)? Alfredo Aceves started in the tenth inning today and struck out six Orioles.
Looks like NY was hit by a nuclear weapon. In a good way.
Since the Yankees were the first to wear numbers on their jerseys in 1930, and last night's games wore the 1912 uniforms, I'm asking when was the last time that the Yanks have worn uniforms preceding the 1930 season? If so, have the Yankees ever worn the NY Highlanders' uniforms before, on any similar "Throwback uniform" type of night?
Please feel free to discuss other teams' throwback uniforms as well.
Before Cleveland's Jeanmar Gomez was ejected with no outs in the third tonight, who was the last pitcher to be ejected while pitching a no-hitter?
Tonight Yu Darvish will start for Texas after Koji Uehara was Texas's last pitcher yesterday. I looked at Matsuzaka and Okajima on Boston and they probably pitched conseuctively multiple times (either within one game or Okajima finishing a game and Matsuzaka starting the next game). They pitched consecutively most recently on September 14, 2010 when Okajima relieved Matsuzaka at Seattle. Does anybody know of any other pairs of Japanese teammates who did that?
Tonight Matt Cain struck out in his fourth career pinch-hit plate appearance. He pinch-hit for Barry Zito. Cain has 5 career home runs. He has a career .326 OPS. In 2011 he had 6 RBI in 66 at-bats.
The Mick Hall of fame center fielder. Won three M.V.P. Awards,Seven world series rings.Also as we know he hit 536 home runs,but remember he was a switch hitter.It was really great to have my father to,at age seven see him play.And I did not have a clue just what an impact that had.As I got older and he turned into my idle,like so many of us, I know now we all have our own player as we get into life as yankee fans.They to become our idles, and that is why I know why we will always love our...
