  • Leaving team to go home

    Last year, how many players left their team to go home to deal with their family losing or gaining a member? Recall any b4 last year?

    RE: Leaving team to go home

    Bernie’s father died last year and he missed over a week. Scott Brosius missed time the year before when his father died. Paul’s father died the day the Yankees were to play Game 4 against the Braves in 1999. He and Torre talked, Paul played, and it was quite a scene at homeplate when the Yankees won the game and the Series.

      I do remember the Yanks having a rough go of it in recent years in this department.

        Speaking of leaving the team, whats up with Zac Grienkie, did he ever come back, or what?

        once again another ressurected thread. Man, I wish I could spell.

          Last year, Jason LaRue was placed on the bereavement list and Chris Mickalak was this year.
          Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

            I'm curious, why do people dig up 4-year-old threads?

              Well, I guess because it's suddenly relevant again. o.O
              46 wins to match last year's total

                I can just recall Rivera. I think it was his brother or something. I can just remember that incident. Can't think of any others right now.

                  Dug it up just to see which thread was the oldest thread left in the forum of current events, plus was curious as to where Grienkie was....and another thread has stated where.
