Breaking Down The Platoon Advantage in Major League Baseball

Back in the days of Casey Stengel and Earl Weaver, the platoon was commonly used. It was very successful as far as offensive production was concerned, using two players who received a good amount of playing time at the same position. There are many different types of platoons, they include: right-handed hitter versus left-handed hitter, fastball hitter versus off speed pitch hitter...

Casey Stengel’s Yankees run and near inverse record with non-Yankees teams

It is hard to be a baseball fan and not appreciate what Casey Stengel did as a MLB manager, teacher and character. His 12 seasons as a New York Yankees manager were as dominant as anybody in the history of the game for a run with one team. As we all know, his Yankees won 10 AL Pennants and 7 World Series titles in 12 seasons, only finishing 2nd in 1954 (103-51) and 3rd in 1989 (79...

Amazin’ Memories: Duke Snider, Hall Of Famer and Mets All Star

This vintage United Press International telephoto was taken the day after the Mets purchased Duke Snider for $40,000 from the Los Angeles Dodgers and reuniting him with longtime teammate Gil Hodges. Of course that’s Mets manager Casey Stengel who’s chatting it up with Gil and Duke on the dugout steps just before an April 6th spring training game with the Baltimore Orioles....

Engineering A Miracle

First Mets GM George Weiss And First Mets Manager Casey Stengel On October 16th, 1969 at Shea Stadium, in front of 57,367 hysterical fans the New York Mets wrote the final chapter of what is still today one of the most compelling “rags-to-riches” stories in Major League Baseball history.

Warren Spahn: Longevity, consistency, and greatness

During a 1942 exhibition game against the Brooklyn Dodgers, Casey Stengel, then manager of the Boston Braves, instructed a rookie pitcher to brush back Dodgers shortstop Pee Wee Reese. When the young pitcher refused, Stengel sent him down to the minors for the remainder of the season. Stengel, of course, would go on to win nearly 1,905 games as a manager and lead the New York Yankees...

University holds 3-day conference on NY Mets

As their first manager, Casey Stengel, might have said: Simply Amazin'. The New York Mets are the subject of a three-day academic conference taking place at Hofstra University. The conference takes a look at the team's 50-year history in New York. The Mets were created just four years after the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants fled to California in 1958.

Bobby Valentine Channels Old Casey Stengel

DATELINE: HUMOR! After a couple of horrendous ninth inning relief appearances, Alfredo Aceves found himself waiting for Bobby Valentine to make his way to the mound in Minnesota with the game on the line. The manager may look like he is suffering every time he goes out to the mound nowadays, but at least on the road, everyone is laughing, not booing him. When the manager reached...

Welcome Home, Choo Choo: Fabled Mets’ Catcher Coleman Finally Returns to New York

What comes to mind when I mention “1962?” Is it Casey Stengel’s fractured fairy tales? Is it Marvelous Marv and his unintentional hilarity in the environs of the first base bag? Is it sad-sack starter Roger Craig, a very good pitcher both before and after his Met tenure? Is it the sheer futile enormity of 40-120? When I think of the ’62 Mets, I think of all this, but...
