Bravo to Yankees starter Domingo Germán who retired 27 straight batters to record the 24th perfect game in MLB history in the Yankees 11-0 win over the hapless Oakland Athletics. Just 99 pitches, of which 72 were strikes as he recorded nine strikeouts.

In my morning email from the NY Times:

Quote:
Yankees lose an ace
The New York Yankees continue to see a dreamy spring derailed by injury. Reigning Cy Young winner Gerrit Cole will miss at least one or two months as he undergoes additional testing on his right elbow. The phrases “elbow injury” and “starting pitcher” never mix well, but an MRI showed no tear in Cole’s UCL, which is good news for now. Chris Kirschner has the full report here.

Art Shallock, the oldest living MLB player, turns 100 this month. The full story is amazing, find it here.

Some excerpts:

Quote:
When he got called up for his major-league debut on July 16, 1951, the Yankees made room on the roster by optioning to Triple-A Kansas City a disappointing rookie named Mickey Mantle. They would joke about the absurdity of that transaction for years. And Mantle exacted his playful revenge, in 1955 when Schallock was with the Orioles, by hitting a home run that has yet to come down. The Mick smiled his way around the bases. “Jeez, he could hit that ball,” Schallock said.

Schallock’s first roommate on the road? The Yankees paired him with Yogi Berra, counting on the veteran catcher to share some wisdom with the rookie about how to attack hitters around the league. Schallock still marvels over how Berra knew the weaknesses of every American League hitter as well as who didn’t have one. “Once in a while he’d come across somebody and just say, ‘Hold them to a single,’” Schallock said with a laugh.

Berra got something out of the pairing, too.

“Yeah, when I roomed with him, the first thing in the morning, I had to run down to the lobby to get funny papers for him,’’ Schallock said, laughing again. “Hell, I didn’t know a thing about comic books, but he’d say, ‘Go down and pick up a half-a-dozen comic books.’”

Where are our Yankees fans?


NY Times is running an article about the 1990 "Bronx Zoo" year. You need a subscription to read this long but interesting article, but can watch it all in a Peacock 3-parter.

Excerpts:

Quote:
The slapstick, sobering 1990 season led, improbably, to a Yankees dynasty. The story of that year, “Bronx Zoo ’90: Crime, Chaos and Baseball” debuted Thursday on Peacock as a three-part documentary.

“If there’s one group I wish could see it, it would be Yankee fans 35 and younger, just as a reminder that there is no divine right for the team to be good,” Sherman said. “Because they don’t know; they’re complaining when the team loses in the ALCS. But I’m here to tell you, I covered them when they were the worst, just a total embarrassment on and off the field.”
