    Old Sweater is right. Just like Gary Cooper said as Lou Gehrig in the movie
    "Pride of the Yankees" at the July 4, 1939 ceremonies at Yankee Stadium
    just before his "I'm the Luckiest Man on the Face of the Earth" speech...
    .....when he was identifying all the Yankees there in uniform;
    Murderer's Row (his old teammates) and the Yankees of today (circa 1939)
    (the Bronx Bombers). And they STILL are even in 2007, ay?!
    Just now, they are the Jeter led Bronx Bombers, and not the "Iron Horse" led!!

    You have my HOF vote and good luck in the future now that you have retired. Thanks for the wins you gave the Yanks from 2001-2008. Have an enjoyable retirement.

    The record for a single game is 10 RBI's for a Yankee I thought.

    OK, Rickey Henderson had the correct answer (Moose).
    For bonus points, what was his real name?
    Full name at birth.....and don't cheat by looking it up somewhere.

    THANX,
    Mark

    Well of course. William Joseph Skowron Jr (Bill Skowron).

    Skowron was born in Chicago, Illinois, and is of Polish descent.
    His father was a garbage collector. His friends called him "Mussolini" as a joke,
    after his grandfather gave him a haircut which looked like the dictator's,
    but his family shortened the nickname to "Moose."
    The name stuck throughout his career.

    Well, it wasn't Rich "Goose" Gossage.....because he NEVER had a 40-save season EVER.
    OK, my guess is former starting pitcher and of no-hitter fame, Dave Righetti,
    @ 46 in 1986. Old "Rags" himself?! Am I right, or am I right?!

    If not Rags, I'm guessing Sparky Lyle.

    No.....even in his best year (1972) he only had 35.
    And in his Cy Young year (1977) he had 26.

    Well.....I only looked it up AFTER I had guesses, just to verify.
    First name that came to my mind was naturally Goose Gossage, then Sparky.
    After they were disproved, I started thinking that this might just be a trick question.
    But afterwards and more reflecting, Rags came to mind and I knew relief pitchers
    of long ago weren't used as closers like today, so wouldn't have those stats.

    Ron Guidry only lost three games in his stellar 1978 season, and interestingly, the pitchers who beat him were all named Mike. Which of these pitchers did not hand Guidry a loss that year?

    If the pitcher BEAT Guidry, how did he NOT hand Guidry a loss?
