    Still waiting for things to turn... down here near Atlanta now. My new town has a single A Braves team and I see that both the Yanks and Red Sox will have teams coming to town.

    Re: Who am I?

    The player I was referring to was Jack Feller.

    Here's a new one. In the fifth most recent game in which the Yankees allowed exactly 1 hit, I allowed that hit. The opposing starting pitcher in that game pitched for the Yankees before he was in that game.

    June 30, 2006. Messina, Villone, Proctor, Farnsworth and Rivera combined to one-hit the Mets. The starter and loser for the Mets was Orlando Hernandez.

    You have the game but didn't say who allowed the hit.

    Sorry, I misread the question. I thought you were looking for Duque. Villone gave up the hit.

    Last season I pitched for two teams and had the exact same ERA for each of them.

    Re: Who am I?

    I had a season where I led my team in ERA with enough innings to qualify but had at least 13 fewer wins than my team's leader in wins.
    I have no idea how many answers this question has.

    The rule is 1 IP for each game your team is scheduled to play. The season was 154g in 1951, so he qualified for the ERA title.

    Jarrod Washburn of the 2005 Angels led the team with a 3.20 ERA in 177.1 IP. He finished 8-8; Bartolo Colon won 21 games and the Cy Young Award.

    So if a team has a September rainout and plays only 161 games, a pitcher with 161 to 161 2/3 innings on that team wouldn't qualify? Do you have a link to something that specifically refers to what happens if a team doesn't play the scheduled number of games?

    That was who I'm referring to.

    Rule 10.22(b):

    The individual pitching champion in a Major League shall be the pitcher with the lowest earned-run average, provided that the pitcher has pitched at least as many innings in league championship games as the number of games scheduled for each club in his club’s league that season...

    Rule 10.22(b) Comment: For example, if a Major League schedules 162 games for each club, 162 innings qualify a pitcher for a pitching championship. A pitcher with 161 2/3 innings would not qualify.
    There is no allowance made for games that aren't played.

    On the other side of the coin, someone traded from the Red Sox (86g played) to the Blue Jays (84g played) would have 164g. But they would still only have to meet 162 IP.

    Well, you're a former Cleveland Indian now, but you were with the team when you won that All-Star MVP in 1997. You are Sandy Alomar, Jr., and the following year your little brother won the All-Star MVP.

    You are correct!!

    Actually, Alomar is the Tribe's bench coach as we speak.

    Do you wear a bloody sock and fleece Rhode Island out of millions of dollars or did you play before 1900? I'm assuming you aren't talking about the old Boston Red Stocking Tommy Bond but none other than former Res Sox pitcher Curt Shilling.

    I was talking about the former and not the latter but you did a GREAT JOB in getting the answer. Here are the stats:


    Highest strikeout-to-walk ratio
    in MLB history, with a minimum
    of 1,000 innings pitched.
    1. Tommy Bond, 5.0363
    2. Curt Schilling, 4.3826
    3. Pedro Martinez, 4.1500
    4. Mariana Rivera, 4.0493
    5. Dan Haren, 4.0365
    6. Jim Whitney, 3.8224
    7. Cole Hamels, 3.7507
    8. Cliff Lee, 3.7392
    9. Trevor Hoffman, 3.6906
    10. Doug Jones, 3.6802

    Tommy Bond played 10 seasons
    of baseball from 1874 and
    1884, playing for the Brooklyn
    Atlantics, Hartford Dark Blues,
    Boston Red Stockings, Worcester
    Ruby Legs, Boston Reds and
    Indianapolis Hoosiers. He stood
    only 5-foot-7 and weighed just
    160 pounds. During his career
    he was a three-time 40-game
    winner, played for two National
    League pennant-winning clubs
    and regularly finished in the
    top 10 in many pitching categories.
    In 1877, he was the first
    winner of baseball’s pitching
    triple crown, leading the NL in
    wins (40), earned run average
    (2.11), and strikeouts (170). His
    career statistics include a record
    of 234-163, 386 complete
    games in 408 starts, 42 shutouts
    and an ERA of 2.31.

    Bond's K and BB rate stats are both nutty by today's standards.

    You aren't kidding. In 1874 he gave up 8 walks in 497 innings. (he also only had 42 strike outs. I guess you could say he pitched to contact)
