the 1914 Chicago American Giants were an excellent team
Which recalls the story of the protest filed by a German team in Cincinnati years ago. The Germans were playing the Popular Stars, a team that began with O’Ryan and ended with Grady—and a band was out.
The Irish team won, 12 to 4, and the Germans protested. They claimed the band played “The Wearing of the Green” every time the Irish team got runners on the bases and played “The Marseilles” [sic] when the Germans were likely to score.
You just have to wonder whether Bob Horner would have had a better (and longer) career if he had paid any attention at all to conditioning.
Bob Horner looks svelte compared to players today.
Cy Young winners (present, past, or future) got both the win and loss in relief?
For just the third time in major league history, the two Cy Young winners from the previous season will square off in a game when R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays face David Price and the Rays at Tropicana Field on Thursday night. [...]
Looking over the brief history of Cy Young winners squaring off, the annals contain one classic pitcher's duel and one mismatch. On Aug. 28, 1989, Frank Viola — who had been traded from the Twins to the Mets in a 5-for-1 swap on July 31 of that year — spun a three-hit shutout against Orel Hershiser and the defending world champion Dodgers, winning 1-0; Hershiser threw eight innings, allowing the game's lone run in the third. On July 15, 1999, the Braves' Tom Glavine held the defending world champion Yankees to two runs in six innings, while his teammates piled six runs on Roger Clemens in a 6-2 win.
If the number of Cy Young matchups seems small, remember that it wasn't until 1967 that the award was given out in each league, that interleague play didn't begin until 1997, and that just a small handful of winners have changed teams in the next year — either via free agency or trade — to make such matchups possible in the face of those other obstacles.
I do not think so. Also, sorting after deleting eliminates the row arrows and x-es, so one cannot delete trailing rows and then re-sort in the opposite order to create new trailing rows one can delete.
