BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steve, how many World Series games do you think were less than on the level after the Black Sox series? I know Carl Mays came under suspicion for throwing games.
(ripfan008 from Baltimore)
Miller Huggins seemed to think that something suspicious had happened, anyway, and buried Mays after that. I doubt many were compromised, and certainly no whole Series as in 1919. It's not that it became impossible, but the incentives for the players changed and the culture changed so that gambling on baseball became less prominent. (Steven Goldman)

2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs Roundtabledcoonce (bloomington, indiana): Speaking of post-season chokes, nobody seems to mention that Babe Ruth once got thrown out caught-stealing to end a world series. If A-rod did that today....geez, could you imagine? And what manager lets that happen, even back then?

It was Miller Huggins, and he just didn't have a lot of control over Bonds in general. He was about three feet tall and sickly. Also, what was there for him to do? If Ruth ran in spite of a sign, you're still not going to trade/bench/demote him... (Steven Goldman)
