  2. Who am I?

    I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country. I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed. Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out...

  12. Louis Arroyo is dead

    For those of you too young to remember him, he was a very good relief pitcher for the Yankees in the early 1960's. In fact, in 1961 he had a 15 and 5 record and saved 29 games. Many of those saves were for Whitey Ford who probably would not have had over 20 wins that year without him. How many of you remember him or even saw him pitch?

  14. Players Whose Only Career Win Was In Their MLB Debut

    On September 29, 1993, Kenny Greer made his MLB debut with the Mets and got the win. It was his only career win, only game in 1993, and only career game with the Mets. Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) adds or subtracts a constant to make the average FIP equal the average ERA. Greer did not allow any baserunners in his inning in 1993, and http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/greerke01.shtml has him with an FIP of -1.01. Obviously it is impossible to have an ERA of -1.01.

  18. I channel Evan J with Babe Ruth question

    Babe Ruth hit his first career home run on May 6, 1915 in the Polo Grounds against the Yankees' Jack Warhop. His second career homer came on June 2, 1915, also in the Polo Grounds .... against the self-same Jack Warhop (what a great name, Jack Warhop). Are there any other Hall of Famers whose first TWO career homers were off the same pitcher?

  19. Facing The Yankees In Your MLB Debut and Getting A Win or Save To End A World Series

    On June 2, 2015, Mike Montgomery made has MLB debut against the Yankees. Montgomery allowed 1 earned run in 6 innings, and he was 1 out away from a win when Stephen Drew doubled to tie the game against Fernando Rodney.
