    "Bullet" Bob Turley, R.I.P.

    It seems to be that discussion of the career of Bob Turley, who died Saturday morning at age 82, came and went all too quickly. Turley was very nearly a great pitcher. Between 1955 and 1958 he won 59 games for the Yankees and lost only 20, mostly starting but often, in Casey Stengel's wacky in-and-o ... More >>

    Yanks Can't Afford To Lose Game One

    On paper, it looks like a mismatch, but Yankees fans who have watched their team sink while the Orioles soared over the last third of the season know that this isn't so. In overall batting, the Yanks lead by 18 points, .265 (5th best in the American League) to the Orioles .247 (No. 10), and in r ... More >>

    Those Glorious '86 Mets — Hey, Where Are the Celebrations on Their Silver Anniversary?

    Strawberry!Did I miss it, or has someone written tributes to the 1986 Mets that I didn't see? October 18 marks the 25th anniversary of the first game of the great 1986 World Series, and we just passed the 25th anniversary of perhaps the greatest division series ever, the one with the Houston Astros ...

    The Top Ten Failed First Singles Off The Game's The R.E.D. Album

    ​This list began as a joke, but the longer I contemplated it, the more depressing its basic concept became. Consider: not only could I easily string together ten of Game's fruitless attempts to force label executives to release The R.E.D. Album, his followup to 2008's LAX; I had to make decisi ... More >>

    Remembering Bill Gallo, 1922-2011

    ​In today's Daily News you can find pages of tributes to Bill Gallo, who died Tuesday at the age of 88. My personal favorite is from Yogi Berra, who said, "It's hard to imagine News without him." Because the N in that quote is capped, I assume Yogi meant the Daily News, but I'm sure he also me ... More >>

    Pirates-Yankees 1960 Tonight, Thanks to Bing Crosby

    ​Bing Crosby didn't know it, but when he took off for Paris on October 12, 1960, he left us all with a wonderful Christmas present. Bing was part owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates and fearful that his National League champions were no match for the Mickey Mantle-Roger Maris-Whitey Ford Yankees. ... More >>

    Andy Pettite for the Hall of Fame?

    ​Andy Pettitte for the Hall of Fame? As far as I know, no one has seriously made the argument. For most of Pettitte's career, he has been considered a terrific second level pitcher -- seldom the team's ace and usually the number two guy, the man you want to pitch the second game of an importa ...

    Ralph Houk and Yogi Berra: Let's Not Forget the Facts

    ​Respect for the dead doesn't demand a revision of the historical record. I liked Ralph Houk, too, and was sad to hear of his passing last Wednesday. Yes, Houk was respected by the players that he managed, particularly Mickey Mantle (whom he made the Yankees captain, or at least their unoffici ... More >>

    Dwight Gooden? Have These Guys Never Heard Of a Guy Named Seaver?

    ​The Lineup lost its last shred of credibility this week -- I think I used this lead a few weeks ago but I'm going to use it again -- with their selection for New York baseball's greatest all-time pitcher. Not with the selection of Mariano Rivera as best closer -- thankfully no one embarrassed ... More >>

    Where's the Suspense in Picking New York's All-Time Baseball Lineup?

    ​We just watched the second episode of MSG's The Lineup, which airs Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. and repeats throughout the week, and aside from the fun of watching clips of old ballplayers, we're kind of wondering what the point is. The Lineup's panel -- former players Gary Carter and Sparky Lyle ... More >>

    Willie Mays Is Old, but What's the Daily News's Excuse For Remembering Things So Badly?

    ​Every baseball fan will want to watch Bob Costas interview Willie Mays tonight on the MLB Network's Studio 42 (8:00 pm EST). But fans should also be cautioned that Willie's memory isn't what it once was. According to a column attributed to Wayne Coffey, Michael O'Keefe, and Mark Lelinwalla in ... More >>
