    Re: Starting lineup for the 67 Red Sox

    C -   Russ Gibson,(edited changed from Nixon)  Elston Howard at the end of the year
    1B -  George Scott
    2B -  Mike Andrews
    SS -  Rico Petrocelli
    3B -  Joe Foy
    LF -  Yaz
    CF -  Reggie Smith
    RF -  Tony Conigliaro Ken Harrelson after Tony C got Beaned

    Super sub Jerry Adair (edited corrected spelling)
    OF Jose Tartabull (edited corrected spelling)
    IF Dalton Jones
    Starters - Lonborg, Jose Santiago, Lee Stange, Ken Brett
    Notable relievers Sparky Lyle, Jerry Stephenson, Garry Bell
    added John Wyatt thanks to Zillagod

     Names that I remember! Also an Honorable mention of Billy Rohr Who came within 1 out of no hitting the Yankees and then pitched another complete game 6-1 win against the same Yankees beating Whitey Ford then Mel Stottlemire. He only won 1 more game in his brief 3 year career.

    Actually the catcher was Fall River , Massachusetts native Russ GIBSON ..not RUSS NIXON.

    For people who are hung up on correct spelling Jose TARTABULL, Jerry ADAIR.

    Notable relievers should include John Wyatt.

    Thanks Zill it is always nice to have someone get your back. My Foggy Brain meant Gibson and is the culprit behind the sloppy spelling. Did forget about John Wyatt and you are correct that he should be mentioned. Probably as important as Lyle.

    Also a catcher named Mike Ryan played some, and I think you'll find Dave Morehead was a starter. Dan Osinski and Gary Waslewski pitched out of the bullpen.

    These were the days when AL pitchers batted, and there was no such thing as a closer or set-up man. Pitchers stayed in until they got tired or just plain stunk out the joint....those were truly the days. Games were sometimes played in 2 hours!

         The usual line-up that I can remember was:

         2B Mike Andrews
         3B Joe Foy
         LF Carl Yastrzemski
         RF Tony Conigliaro
         1B George Scott
         CF Reggie Smith
         SS Rico Petrocelli
          C  Mike Ryan
          P Jim Lonborg, Lee Stange, Gary Bell, Darrell Brandon, Jose Santiago.

         What a great year that was! Carl Yastrzemski was a real life Roy Hobbs.

    I will never forget Russ Gibson because when we dine at Applebees in Fall River, Ma. ( the city where I am right at this moment), he along with Greg Gagne are pictured on the wall as "hometown heroes." Also when I visit the Applebees in my hometown of Dartmouth, Ma. , Brian Rose is honored as a "hometown hero." I think that it is really cool the this restaurant chain does this.

    It really sounds like a great achievement, to "almost no-hit" the Yankees. But, many of us forget that the Yankees really stunk back then.

    I never miss an opportunity to bring this up , especially when Yankee fans are around. The Yankees, when I was a kid( around 1967-1975) were not a very good team at all. I think Bobby Murcer, Roy White and Mel Stottlemyre were the only guys they had that were close to "stars."

    Manager: Red Schoendenst

    LF Brock
    SS Maxvill
    1B Cepeda
    RF Maris
    CF Flood
    3B Shannon
    2B Javier
    C  McCarver

    Pitchers included Gibson, Carlton (Steve) and Briles

    Thats about all I can remember, although I do remember that somewhere during that season Jimy Williams played for them too...but don't know the details...just remember him talking about it once while he was manager of the Sox.

    Re: Starting lineup for the 67 Red Sox

    NY had 4 former RS on their roster and still had Mantle, Ford, Stotllemyer and ended up 72-90-1---20 games out. Still trying to figure out how they played 163 games???
    RS won season series 10-6

    In hindsight Lonborg should had not pitched the 7th game should had been Santiago or Morehead. Lonborg on 2 days rest probably the only mistake Williams made all year.

    I was listening to that game, which is pretty famous, considering the protagonists involved, and what happened that season. Let's not forget that historically great catch Yaz made in Death Valley on Tom Tresh to preserve the no-hitter at that point; Jerry Coleman lost his voice on that one.

    Kubek retired in '65 due to injuries, and did plenty for the Yankees beforehand. In fact, when the Yankees collapsed that yr, many pointed to the fact that it had alot to do with them no longer having Kubek, who was arguably the best SS in the AL in the early 60s, along with Aparicio. (Of course Mantle, Maris, & Howard aging out and with injuries also helped)

    "carl yaz was a real life roy hobbs."

    i don't remember yawkey shooting yaz in '67. or carl batting with a bullet hole in his side. but then, i didn't see too many games on the tube, so i might have missed it.

    I still have a scrapbook with a picture of Lou Brock glued into it. Bob Gibson was some kind of superstar from another planet and wish to God we could have gotten one more start out of Lonborg with normal days rest that year. The performance YAZ put on that year is etched in our minds forever and probably the reason a lot of us actually became "fans". He was a normal sized guy who became larger than life.

    Yaz said they did something with the batter's eye before that game which made it very difficult to hit, and as a result, against Gibson, and I quote him "We didn't have a chance".
