  2. RIP Ray Boone

    This happened a few days ago; I'm surprised no one brought it up (or else I was unable to find a thread on it being that the search feature here has been disabled) -- the patriarch of the first three-generation baseball family (father of Bob, grandfather of Bret and Aaron "F*cking") died on Sunday at age 81. Interesting that it happened on the year anniversary of the homerun that gave Aaron his new middle name. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/2004-10-17-ray-boone-obit_x.htm

  10. Card collector's question

    I recently bought a box of Upper Deck Etchings. In the box I got 4 autographs among them were 2 Ken Griffey,Jr. They were identical except for the serial numbers. I traded one of them even up for a 1996 Leaf Signature Series (gold) autograph of Mariano Rivera. The gold issue was limited to 500 autographs and is not numbered. The Griffey is serial numbered 1231 of 1629. Does anyone have an opinion on the deal I made? Thanks.

  13. Speaking of Yankee announcer Jim Kaat....

    Why isn't he in the Hall of Fame? He played for 25 years often with weak teams and yet had a overall record of 283-237. He also had three years where he won 20 or more games and had a life time era of 3.45. I know he didn't play often in post season games, but I have a feeling that there are plenty of pitchers in the Hall who don't have his credentials!

  15. Anyone remember this thread?

    So many of us weighed in on this photo -- we spent days and weeks trying to come up with the answer, but try as we might, we couldn't figure out who the infamous "guy on the left" was. Well, today, finally, I think I have an answer. I was browsing through ebay and I came across a picture of an old 1938 Yankees World Series program, with cutout headshots of each of the major players. I got all excited because recognized "the guy" right away as the one in that picture, but did a websearch just...

  18. Yankees in struggling times

    Can somebody explain to me the Yankees' demise in the mid-60's to early 70's, and then again in the late 80's? I didn't start following baseball seriously until 1990 when I was twelve years old, and I am just curious as to how the Yankees dominated for so long, only to have strings of losing seasons at these times in their history. I am especially interested in how the hell they hit rock-bottom with a 67-95 record in 1990. WTF? They had some really good years in the 80's. Was it bad...

  19. Dusty Baker's Minor League Playing Career

    Maybe someone can settle this bet for me. My sister bet me 10 bucks that Dusty at one time or another played for Syracuse in the International League. I say he played for the Richmond Braves. He went up to the Atlanta Braves in September '68 and remained there for several seasons. Seems like a slam dunk too me, but I can't find a site that has his minor leaugue history to verify that he didn't (for some reason) appear with the Syracuse Chiefs- longtime AAA farm team for the Yanks. Help?
