CARL YASTRZEMSKI RUMORS

Carl Yastrzemski Puts David Ortiz Ahead Of Himself As A Red Sox Hitter

When it comes to Boston Red Sox history, there’s no argument over who the best hitter is. Ted Williams’ incredible .344 career batting average and 521 home runs make him Boston’s king. But the No. 2 guy has come into question recently. A few years ago, you could ask anyone on the streets of Boston, and they’d likely tell you Carl Yastrzemski was the Red Sox’s second-best...

David Ortiz Jokes About Being Bigger Than Carl Yastrzemski (Video)

David Ortiz passed a Boston Red Sox legend on the all-time home run list Monday night after belting two home runs during his team’s 14-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Ortiz’s 453rd home run put him at 36th all-time, which put him ahead of Carl Yastrzemski, and after the game he joked that he’s “bigger than him.” Of course, he later said that he’s only physically...

David Ortiz Passes Carl Yastrzemski On All-Time Home Run List (Video)

David Ortiz stands alone in 36th place on Major League Baseball’s all-time home run list.

Ortiz now has 453 career home runs, including 395 as a member of the Red Sox. All 452 of Yastrzemski’s home runs came with the...

Josh Wilker on Luis Tiant

Carl Yastrzemski had heard cheers before. Just five years earlier, he’d led the Red Sox to a miracle pennant, setting his previously moribund home ballpark ablaze, but this new sound was different. Deeper, fuller, more intimate, more human, more alive. In 1972, Fenway Park turned into one gigantic heart, thumping out a pulse in the name of the gnomish, barrel-chested man at the...

Which MLB greats had the worst final season?

On Friday, when I was writing about Carl Yastrzemski, I thought about Willie Mays. Anecdotally, when we think of the worst-ever final season by a great player, we think of Mays wasting away on the Mets. But is that really the example we should think of, or is it simply the most well-known? With both Vladimir Guerrero and Todd Helton announcing their retirement over the weekend further...

Yaz's grandson a Vandy dandy

At 45-6, the Vanderbilt baseball team is arguably the best in the nation, and while some of the Commodores' stars may be several years from becoming household names, one of them has a name you most certainly already know -- even if you can't spell it. Mike Yastrzemski is a left-handed, senior outfielder for the Commodores , who seem primed to make the second College World...

Yastrzemski: Somebody's got to win TC

Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski thinks that being in a pennant race will help Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in his attempt to win the Triple Crown. And Yaz should know: He's the last player to lead his league in batting average, homers and RBI in the same season. ''In '67, the Triple Crown was never even mentioned once,'' Yastrzemski said Wednesday...

Has the Triple Crown lost its luster?

Nobody has won the Triple Crown in the majors since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Nobody has won the Triple Crown in the National League since Joe "Ducky" Medwick in 1937. Back when those Triple Crowns were won, that was considered an accomplishment of epic proportions. 45 years after Yaz's Triple Crown, Detroit's Miguel Cabrera is the latest star poised to make...
