Forum: Around The Majors

Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.

  1. I look at this in a whole new way...

    My history teacher's great uncle played for the Yankees. He called me over, told me to say "And this one time, at band camp..." and then showed me Jack Quinn's stats. Jack Quinn lost Game #3 in the 1921 WS, but his ERA was like 3.28 or so. That's pretty good for back then. He never told his real age (reminds me of El Duque!), but he was the last pitcher to legally be able to use the spit ball. They say he died around the age of 76-8?. They aren't quite sure, but I do know that he was living...

  9. Mantle & Maris...those were the days!

    My fondest baseball memory was when my father took the whole family to a Sunday doubleheader (they had 'em a lot on Sunday's and holidays)...and M & M would hit back to back homers, sometimes more than once...talk about being a part of history! The players would park their cars on the street (across from the big lot on the side), and there were no guards or barricades to keep you from going right up to them for autographs. My father died in October (even though he was so sick, he got to see...

Let's not get radical like the Queen of Hearts, whose judicial temperament was summed up in the famous phrase: "Sentence first -- verdict afterwards." Let's look at the evidence and then try to mete out some justice.

    Damn another chucker turning down a 10mil plus contract offer... Radke spurned twins 3year 21mil deal... I respect the twins for at least trying and think the offer was more trhan respectable, but uhh, I also thought the mutts offer of 5years @ $55mil was respectable for hampton and the O's offer of 5 years @ $50 was respectable for moose... but maybe I'm outta the loop... I guess I didn't get the memo that ace's minimim wage perhaps due to cone's deal is now 13mil minimum... I dunno,...

  16. Strategy Question

    I've often wondered why managers don't "surprise" their opponents by switching starting pitchers just before the game begins (but just after the lineups have been announced). This could be used when playing a team that uses a large number of lefty-righty platoons in its lineup. If you announce that you're going to start a righty, they use their left-handed line-up. When you hand in your line-up card, you have your lefty instead. The opponent is left with a poor choice of pinch-hitting...

  18. Koufax Strikes Out 15 Yankees

    I was fortunate to have a seat right behind home plate in the old yankee stadium for the first game of the 1963 Worl Series game against the Los Angeles Dodgers when Koufax struck out 15 of my beloved yankees. I believed he got the Mick a couple of times and Maris a couple. He was throwing "Aspirins on that day. Best left handed pitcher I ever saw
