1917 Team had Babe Ruth anchoring one of the best rotations in history and you have to talk about them too. (Of course, Harry Frazee would shortly sell Ruth to the Yanks in order to finance production of the highly successful show "No-No Nanette" )
Originally posted by HandyAndyNever let the truth get in the way of a good story. Frazee was obsessed with making it in the "Big Apple" and he certainly used some of his Ruth money to finance his entertainment ventures there.

Originally posted by darvlayThat was a great team. Beat the Giants in the World Series 4-3 with one tie. Smokey Joe Wood won THREE games and beat the immortal Matthewson in the Series clincher.
Only you would speak about a team from 1912 as if you just watched them yesterday.
Originally posted by Red NightWhy were they not using the DH after 72?
We could talk about a team I actually saw...the 1975 Sox.
That's another good team. Lost to the Reds, who might have been the best National League team EVER.
Yaz, Pudge, Freddy Lynn, Jim Rice, Cecil cooper, Rico, Dewey, and the Rooster.
A little short of pitching after Tiant and the Spaceman, but still a very good team. Might have won if Rice had played and they had used the DH.
