  1. Is it Tito and Terry Francona ?

  2. It’s gotta be the Franconas

  3. Coley Ward says:

    You’re both right.

  4. Coley Ward says:

    Was that too easy?

  5. dammit beat me to it!

    now when can we talk about the Roberto Alomar AIDS story?

  6. I just took a shot in the dark, i originally thought felipe and moises alou.

  7. Ace and Robin Ventura… wait

  8. In retrospect I realize that wasn’t a really hard one to solve, but I found it such a random tidbit that I had to make a trivia question out of it.

  9. If you want to ask a hard random tidbit ask something that isn’t really that easy to jump to a conclusion. How about, without looking it up: Not counting the deadball era, what pitcher currently holds the record for best single season WHIP (easy to guess, but not necessarily on the first try).

  10. Eric Gagne?

  11. Sarah Green says:

    I would’ve said pedro.

  12. Alright, that was a little obvious… especially for those who still remember the Pedro glory days.

    Here’s a better: Since the beginning of the live ball era, Warren Spahn is generally recognized as holding the record for pitching the most complete games. From the 1940s on, which pitcher holds the record for most complete games by a right hander.

  13. Three guesses…Robin Roberts….Early Wynn ….Burleigh Grimes.. Wynn (who was known to pitch inside at times) was interviewed in Cooperstown years ago by Joe Garagiola. Joe said “Early, I think you would have thrown at your mother if she hit against you.” Wynn replied “Only if she was diggin in, Joe.”
    Those were the days.

  14. I would guess Gaylord Perry or Bill Hutchison. That is a tough one!

  15. And just as I type that…Bill Hutchison was far too old. I think you’re right with Robin Roberts

  16. Robin Roberts was right.

  17. I usually don?t post in Blogs but your blog forced me to, amazing work.. beautiful ?
