  • Getting around "the curse"

    OK, this is my first question for everyone. I did look through all of the previoud threads and haven't found this one, but it's been bugging me since Clemens won a World Series.

    Since 1918, what players have won a World Series with the Yankees _after_ having suited up for the Red Sox? I can only think of three very obvious ones. Anyone?

    Babe Ruth
    Wally Schang
    Joe Dugan
    Everett Scott
    Elmer Smith
    Mike McNally
    Joe Bush
    SAm Jones
    Waite Hoyt
    Herb Pennock
    Carl Mays. . . and this is only looking at the 1923 New York Yankees.

      Ben Paschal
      Wilcy Moore, who would do it in 1932.
      George Burns
      Red Ruffing
      Danny MacFayden
      Ivy Andrews in 38
      Bob Seeds
      Wes Ferrell
      Bobo Newsom, who oddly enough is mentioned in Rob Neyer's column today.
      Jack Kramer
      Jim McDonald
      Ray Scarborough
      Mickey McDermott
      Tex Clevenger
      Hal Brown. . . and that takes care of the teams through the 60's.

        Wade Boggs
        Jeff Manto
        Roger Clemens
        I believe that is all of them.
