6/11 Cheering, Venting & welcome back Tony!

Postby wrveres » Tue Jun 11, 2013 12:35 pm

Anniversaries; Chris Jaffe
  • 1927 The Philadelphia A’s field one of the most impressive lineups of all-time: Eddie Collins, Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove, Al Simmons, Zack Wheat, Ty Cobb and Mickey Cochrane all play for Connie Mack in a game they lose 5-4 to Detroit.
  • 1948 The fans in Yankee Stadium aren’t happy when umpire Cal Hubbard ejects young catcher Yogi Berra, so they throw feces at him.
  • 1952 The Boston Braves make a deal for Hank Aaron after the teen had played one month with the Indianapolis Clowns of the Negro Leagues.
  • 1962 Tito Francona pulls off a sneaky play: He shouts “Hold it!” while the pitcher is in mid-motion, as if time was called. But time hadn’t been called, and since the pitcher didn’t throw the ball and none of the umpires heard Francona, it’s a balk.
  • 1966 Mr. Cub Ernie Banks hits three triples in one game.
  • 1967 Hank Aaron steals three bases in one game for the second and final time in his career.
  • 1967 Chicago Cub Adolfo Phillips hits four home runs in a doubleheader, including three in one game.
  • 1969 Boston’s Joe Lahoud hits three home runs in one game.
  • 1972 Brothers Jim and Graig Nettles both hit homers in the same game.
  • 1978 Eternal baseball pitcher Mike Morgan makes his big league debut. He is just a teen, but will later become a four-decade player due to this early start.
  • 1981 STRIKE: Baseball players go on strike at the conclusion of today’s games. It turns out to be the last game in the career of outfielder Billy North.
  • 1983 Star infielder Jose Reyes is born.
  • 1990 Nolan Ryan pitches his sixth no-hitter and becomes the oldest pitcher ever to throw one. He fans 14 and walks a pair as Texas defeats the A’s, 5-0.
  • 1993 The Padres trade Tony Fernandez to the Mets. It's one of the few Tony Fernandez-related roster transactions that doesn't involve the Blue Jays.
  • 1995 Mark McGwire hits three homers in one game, giving him five over the last two.
  • 1999 Miguel Tejada smacks three home runs in one game.
  • 2000 The Yankees sign what’s left of free agent Dwight Gooden.
  • 2004 Rey Sanchez hits a walk-off, inside-the-park home run.
  • 2005 Marlon Anderson hits a pinch-hit, game-tying, inside-the-park home run in the ninth inning for the Mets, but they lose to the Angels in 10 anyway.
  • 2006 Former star Mets second baseman Edgar Alfonzo plays in his final game.
  • 2008 Esteban Loaiza pitches for the final time.

It's TOOOOOOOOONE TIIIIIIIIIMMMEEEEE!!!!!

After getting 1 total point from Nolasco and Teheran yesterday, today I hope I can at least double that output from Cole, Cingrani, and Cashner, the 3 C's. By the end of the day I'll have used half my starts for the week, and might even have double digit points to show for it!!

I traded Iwakuma for Hamels two weeks ago, so Hamels better put up a solid game to rival Iwakuma's gems.

he escaped the first two without a blemish.
