Cant stop laughing....

Edit: Gotta say though that ARod was actually a good sport about it. Well done.
Three or four more years and he will have completed the transformation to highly liked baseball commentator. Or has he already? Unless he gets bored and he certainly doesn’t need the money. Or, maybe he’s keeping his hand in until the Yankee manager job is open again. :cool:

Imagine that bet going the other way -
not sure I would have been able to handle it.

Also, contrary to that graphic, other pro sports have variable playing surface dimensions. Not quite to the level of baseball, but still. FIFA specifies a minimums and maximums for field width and length, but not a fixed size. Also, haven’t there been some variations in hockey rink size - particularly the old Garden? I thought some clubs preferred wider or longer rinks to open play up, shorter/narrower for more physical play etc.

Re: 1951 Playoff game. That must have been Don Mueller's single with a runner on first, score was 4-1 at the time.

No outs when that happened. Mueller's hit was followed by an out, Whitey Lockman's double to left (on which Mueller hurt his ankle sliding into third and had to be removed); then Thomson's homer.

He gets a bit of a raw deal.He was away better player than Jeter, and Jeter, with the range of a post made him move to 3b. The when the Sox went on the 04-08 run Arod was blamed by the fans as a choker. The when he carried then to the 2009 title, he got little credit, but they were not concerned about his extraordinary recovery or strength. When he declined the Yankees were fine with him being suspended since it saved them money, and he became a villain, while at the same time Jeter and Kobe held a competition for who could hurt their team more while having he most self centered farewell. Maybe someday baseball historians will clue into what a self-serving clown Jeter was, as they have (at least a bit) with Dimaggio. To Yankee fans he is the symbol of them becoming just another team, and the end of chanting "1918". What is not to like about that?
