    Mickey corked his bat enroute to the triple crown.

     



    My favorite polish boy was the last guy to win the triple crown.  This has nothing to do with anything, I just like carl yazz!

     

    Speaking of yazz, I ignore mryazz because he's not worth my time.

     




     

    67,

    The last guy to win was last season Miquel Cabrera, but you're right about mryazz.

    And Cabrera on a tear this season too.

     




    Sure, go ahead and burst my bubble Wink Being half polish carl yazz was a favorite at my house. 

     

    I enjoy heated debates as you well know as long as people stay relativley civil.  We all get caught up in the moment at times but I think it's important not to start with the ugly names. I really do ignore people like mryazz and some others.  My rule is, if I wouldn't sit and have a drink with a poster in the real world then I won't talk to him or her on-line.

     




     

    Quite obvious you have much more class than I do 67 :-)



    LOL, twm! 

    It is my hope that we all meet some day in heaven and have a game, kind of like field of dreams so I have to be on my best behavior Innocent I fail more than I succede but the definition of a saint is a sinner who doesn't give up!!!

    My best friend growing up was Polish his grandparents fled the old country and Hitler's army.

    I spent a lot of the holidays in their home as an adopted Irish son.

    Great food and great times.

    My friend's father was a hugh Yaz and Ted Williams fan and possessed a gifted great sense of humor.

    Timing is everything.

    Every year on my birthday wherever he is my friend calls me and sings happy birthday to me in Polish.

    Gee pike that must mean that I don't consider Maris one of the greatest Yankees of all time.

    Maris isn't in the hall for having one great season the same reason he isn't one of the greatest Yankees ever.

    top 5

    Lou Gehrig

    Ruth

    Dimaggio

    Mantle

    Berra

     



    You put Berra 5th?

     

     




     

    Are you kidding?




    Mariano Rivera? I am not a huge Jeter person, but he has had a better career (IMO) than Berra. Jeter has 1200 more hits.

    I have to agree with you.

    Mo could be in the top 5.

    Certainly a debatable issue.

    Why I mentioned there were two still playing who I thought should be in the top 10.

    Did you see Berra play? I remember all those great series when I was a kid, against the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Milwaukee Braves. Yogi was a force in all of the series he played either hitting or catching.

    He had a brilliant career. 10 ws rings, 3 MVPs, 15 as games is difficult to ignore.

    Another thing about Yogi, when Elston Howard came on the scene Yogi went to the outfield without a peep, for the good of the team.

    That was 1961.

    Compare that to Posada and the way he behaved when his position was challenged.

     The Yankee lineup was full of many Italians. It was a demographic thing since NYC was populated with millions of Italians.  It was smart of them to fill their roster with Italian players in a city mostly Italian.  The Dodgers and Padres are doing the same thing with their roster in filling it with Hispanics.

    Sadly the Red Sox tried to fill their lineup with Irishmen but they couldn't play baseball that well and owner Yawkey, GM Cronin, and racist manager Pinky Higgins hated blacks.  This is why Boston spent so much money and never won pennants during those decades.

     




     

    The Yankee line-up was full of many Italians?

    When the hell was that pike?

    Like it was a target.

    Can't think of a time when that occured.

    Rizzuto, DiMaggio and Berra?

    Quick, find me three Italians who will eventually make the HOF and sign them, not because they can play the game but because NY is mostly Italian?

    When was NY ever mostly Italian?

    have you ever been to old yankee stadium?  i had the pleasure of going there probably 100+ times.  ever see the RF dimensions at Yankee stadium?  Imagine being a power hitter and playing 81 games a year there. 

    regardless whether or not i saw #7 play live and in person does not and cannot change the fact that Mickey Mantle was a cheater.

    Yeah I saw Mantle play many times in the old Yankee stadium long before GS bought the team and renovated it

    CF was 461' in those days and the monuments were right on the field in dead center

    Most of his homeruns in YS were hit to right and left center.

    Didn't make a difference his homeruns typically would have left any park in baseball and usually did.

    I was right when I figured you never saw him play and also that you were just another cheap shot artist.

    Hanging your hopes on a bat that no one knows if was ever used.

    Colavito, Broaca

    Billy Martin's real name was Billy Martini




    And your point is?

    Is this a tribute to Yankee ballplayers of Italian heritage?

    I hope so. Great Italians in every walk of American life.

    Probably be dumb to point out that they all didn't play on the same team.

    The Red Sox never had Italian ballplayers?

    I'd look them up but it isn't worth the effort because their were tons of them as their have been with the Yankees.

    Years ago I got fed up with the Rubik's cube. I wasted a few days on it. I found a new way to solve the puzzle. I threw it against the wall and put it together with all sides the same color.

    Just like Capt. Kirk, I do not believe in the no-win scenerio.

    Cheating???...well, you can call it that. I prefer to say I found a new way to solve the puzzle.



    Theres a cleaner way. If you take the stickers off one of the center sections (not all the stickers, just one if the middle ones) theres a little door under there that you can open up. Thats what hides the screws that hold the cube together. Unscrew one of them and the whole cube comes apart. Then you just reassmble it with all the colors together. The last piece is the hardest to snap back in. But youre right, throwing it against the wall may also work, and may also be more spectacular........

    i have been on this thread for a couple months or so....hmmmm....maybe a bit more, yes?  no?.  i have a couple, three, four posts under my belt and will certainly take a shot at the yankees whenever possible.  i wouldnt call it a cheap shot though...i would call it a cheat shot.  just like your boy MM.

    wax all you want about how old you are.  big deal if i never saw him play in person.  doesnt change the fact that your hero cheated the game of baseball.

    clown that.

    Bwahahahaha this is the funniest thing I have ever read.  Oh man.  Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Lou Gehrig.  Some might consider those guys to be some of the better Yankees of all time.  Those are some regular Italian names right there.

    so really we shouldn't be surprised that the tradition continues in the Bronx.

    A Mickey Mantle game used bat was xrayed and discovered that it was drilled and corked.  this is the first proof of the claims of the longtime clubhouse attendant that always said Mantle corked.

    atta boy Mick!!!




    Who gives a crud?  Really? 

     

        Ty Cobb was a cheater ... he wore his cleats high, sharp and mean ... in the end, if he didn't have the grit to get it done and intimidate others ....
