  3. El Duque for the Hall

    I don't know where I should put this thread, but I was wondering how many people here think Orlando Hernandez could make the Hall of Fame. Combining the Cuban stats I could find with the American, he has 187 wins and 88 losses. I'm sure his ERA is low. Any chance the writers will look at his Cuban numbers and experience as one of the great Cuban ballplayers ever, combine it with his very good Major League years, and put him in alongside Martin Dihigo, generally considered the greatest Cuban...

  5. Some old photos

    While looking through my memorabilia, I found these photos in an envelope at my parents house. I remember them from when I was younger, and one or two had my name and 3rd grade class on the back, so I must have used some for show and tell I guess. They are all press photos, some with captions. Some say "file photo" on the back, others had papers attached to them. The ones with info on the back (other than my name and class:)) have the backs scanned as well. All are actual photos on photo...

  7. Looking for a Paul O'Neill #21 Shirt

    I have been looking for a Paulie O'Neill #21 Yankees shirt for a long time, and I haven't been able to find it. I tried Ebay and I was unsuccessful. I have also gone to the shops across the street from the Stadium and no one has it. Help me out...it is a gift for my old man. He was a huge O'Neill fan.

  9. 303-150

    What would you give for a Yankee starter with that W/L record over a bunch of years? Well, that's the combined record in Pinstripes of southpaw Herb Pennock and fireballing righty Allie Reynolds, both born on this most fortuitous of Yankee days. The wily Ed Barrow knew he needed lefties for the House That Ruth Built, so he grabbed Pennock from Boston (the team from which he and The Babe had come) in time for the 1923 opener and never looked back. Reynolds ("Superchief") could throw it...

  12. Luis Tiant signing with the Yankees in 1978

    Sorry this isn't a steroids related thread but... In Nov 1978 Luis Tiant signed with the Yankees - he'd been a Red Sox since 1971, and was there for all the Munson-Fisk, Fisk-Pinella, etc etc fights (and apparently cried after the 78 AL East playoff game). Not only did he sign with his team's arch-enemy, but it hasn't affected his legacy in Boston at all - but Boggs, Clemens, it did (Pedro it DEFINITELY would as well). Any reasons? Was it just because Steinbrenner gave him more money? He...

  14. "Ball Four", the TV show

    I watched the pilot of this short-lived '70s sitcom based on the book at the Museum of Television & Radio this afternoon, and, coming from someone who worships that book, can totally see why it flopped after like four episodes or something. The theme song, for one thing, really sucked. Most of the jokes -- which were definitely inspired by some of the ones in the book -- kind of fell flat. And since it essentially took place almost entirely within the clubhouse it didn't exactly move the way...

  20. best second baseman in baseball history

    I know it's hard to consider who would be the best ever, as baseball eras are vastly different.....but if you had to pick ONE second baseman for your all-time best lineup, who would you pick?
