  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Autograph Alert Website

    Hey folks...This is a great website for autograph news.

    I got back two more pictures that were taken when I visited the Hall of Fame this summer. Here's one that's very appropriate to post this evening, as the Red Sux leave town with the realization they will watch the postseason on tv once again :lol:

  6. Life after managing the Yankees has its fair share of perks

    By Mark Herrmann STAFF CORRESPONDENT http://www.newsday.com October 19, 2001 Seattle - Stump Merrill was in the middle of a telephone conversation yesterday about Lou Piniella and about how getting fired as Yankees manager isn't the end of the world. Then Merrill, at home in Maine, had to excuse himself to answer the door. The UPS driver delivered a package from Tampa and suggested Merrill might be getting one just like it next year. "I sure hope so," said Merrill, knowing that it was...

  11. This Date in Yankee History: June 18, 1977

    Remember this? New York's Reggie Jackson loafs after a fly ball during a 10-4 loss to Boston and is taken out by manager Billy Martin. Jackson and Martin nearly come to blows in the dugout as national television cameras watch. During that series with the Sox June 17-19, Boston set a ML record by hitting 16 homers in their three game sweep of our Yanks (courtesy of The Yankee Encyclopedia). Looking back, I'm REALLY glad there was no Internet back then! ;)

  15. Question re: ERA formula

    (Number of earned runs x 9) divided by (number of innings pitched) That's the pitching formula, which makes perfect sense. But what if a guy comes in on his first appearance of the season and gives up five runs without recording an out? Then, technically, he's pitched zero innings while giving up five runs. So the formula would read (5x9)/0, which brings you to 0 and error on the calculator. What would this guy's ERA be after this appearance? -#1YankeeLover

  17. Uniform #42!

    #42 was retired in honor of Jackie Robinson, and those who already had the number were allowed to keep it, which is how Mariano is the only player in baseball to wear #42. So how did Mo Vaughn get #42?! -#1YankeeLover

  18. Weird question!

    It occurred to me last night -- I think it was in the eighth inning when Bernie walked? Anyway, say a pitcher is brought into a game (first game of the season, let's say, so he doesn't have an ERA yet) and walks four batters in a row without recording an out, so he gave up a run in zero innings. How does that figure? -#1YankeeLover

  19. Favorite Sports Memorabilia you own

    I'd be very interested to hear from other YANKEES fans that have some sort of YANKEES memorabilia. What is your favorite piece? Why? Mine is an autographed 8x10 of my all time favorite YANKEES player, Mickey Mantle. He autographed the photo at a local racetrack while working for one of the AC casinos. When my turn in line arrived, I could hardly contain myself, face to face with my hero. Although told in advance not to ask any questions, I said"Mr. Mantle, which World Series ring are you...
