Indians Series Summary No. 3: Hooray, they beat a lefty

In the brief two-game series against the Chicago White Sox, the Cleveland Indians lost their fifth game of the season by a score of 4-1, then won their third, 4-2. The win was their first home victory after starting 0-4 at Progressive Field. What lousy timing for the Indians so far in this young season. After opening the 2015 campaign by taking two out of three in Houston, the Tribe...

Big Unit takes in Hall of Fame

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Randy Johnson was like all the rest -- speechless at the thought of being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. "It hasn't quite sunk in yet. It really hasn't," Johnson said Saturday after taking his pre-induction tour of baseball's shine. "I'm honored and humbled. I didn't play the game for the money or the prestige. I didn't know I was going to be half as...

Unlikely No-Hitters and the Pitchers Who Threw Them

Last week, a conversation with a friend spurred an investigation into the Most Unlikely 3-Homer Game Ever. A conversation about that piece with a different friend got me wondering which pitcher had thrown the most unlikely no-hitter in history. So I dug in. In the course of my research, I discovered that this question has already been answered, by no less an authority than Bill...

Municipal Stadium Does Double Duty: October 10, 1948

It hosted the Indians, two NFL teams (the Rams and the Browns), innumerable college football games (including a bowl game, the Great Lakes Bowl) and concerts like the World Series of Rock and the initial Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame concert. But on Oct. 10, 1948 – Cleveland Municipal Stadium pulled double duty. That day, the Indians were hosting the Boston Braves in Game 5 of...

Mets Card of the Week: 1966 Wes Westrum

1966 TOPPS WES WESTRUM My impressions of the 1960s? Well, not to wax all “We Didn’t Start the Fire” here, but to me it’s a blur of JFK, MLK, RFK, Nixon, Vietnam, Woodstock, men on the moon, and Miracle Mets. Of course, when it comes to Topps cards, the decade can only mean one thing: the screaming-manager pose. This basic tableau is illustrated ably by the 1966 card of Wes...

Mets Card of the Week: Managers and Coaches

1973/1974 TOPPS MANAGERS AND COACHES Topps went back to 1960 for their 1973 and 1974 sets, and for the first time since that year of Nixon vs Kennedy, produced manager cards that included each teams’ primary coaching staff. The 1973 set being the generally sloppy affair that it was, the background colors for the coaches photos in many of these cards vary from a sickly orange to...

The Hall of Fame Case for Mickey Lolich

Consistency is the yardstick by which excellence is measured. Mickey Lolich, a Detroit baseball icon, demonstrated consistency, ergo, excellence in a career that, perhaps surprisingly, has not yet warranted admittance to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Lolich was a perfect fit for the blue-collar metropolis that defined American industry in the 20th century by churning out Cadillacs...

Sunday Notes: Dickey & Scherzer, Bando’s Spitball, Blue Jays

On July 2, 1963, the San Francisco Giants beat the Milwaukee Braves 1-0 in 16 innings. Juan Marichal and Warren Spahn both pitched complete games. Marichal threw 227 pitches, Spahn, who was 41 years old at the time, threw 201. What do R.A. Dickey and Max Scherzer think about the historic duel? “I’m speechless, really,” […]

Mets Card of the Week: 1966 Warren Spahn

1966 TOPPS CHECKLIST WARREN SPAHN The ghost of Warren Spahn haunts the 1966 Topps set. Spahn appeared on a 1965 card as a Mets pitcher/coach, head balding and face well lined. He was 44 at the time, and had by then won 356 games, thrown 5,046 innings, and given three prime years of his life to service in World War II. Spahn went 4-12 with a 4.36 ERA for the Mets that year, the high...

Spahn and Sain, and pray for rain !

The Yankees are trying, already, to drive on fumes.Derek and Roberts need rest and the rain gods gave them another day.  Even Solarte looks a little beaten down, and could do with a game off.  He got it.The bullpen is stretched so thin you can see holes in the cheese.  Robertson needs weeks of rest ( we all know how those groin injuries plague one ) but a Cubs game put off until...

Pitching it old school — In praise of complete games

“And that was (FILL IN ANY MET STARTER’S NAME HERE) 100th pitch, and here comes Terry Collins; he’s made the signal to the bullpen, his day is over.” 100 pitches. The magic number for a starter nowadays in baseball. And the pitchers, for the most part, have accepted this. Oh, maybe once in a great while you’ll hear a pitcher grumble, especially if the reliever coughed up...

Remembering the Three Cy Young Award Winners for Milwaukee

It’s a little tricky nailing down the exact date that Don Newcombe, the great pitcher who spent most of his career with the Brooklyn Dodgers, won the first Cy Young Award in 1956.  Newcombe also won the NL MVP that year.  I guess I’ll defer to MLB Network, which hailed Tuesday as the birthday of the Cy Young Award on its show “MLB Tonight.”  The brainchild of former baseball...
