I'm a Tigers fan, and Verlander is my favorite... and I missed him. Excuse me while I go hang my head in shame.

You should be used to shame, being a Tigers fan and all.

Could be worse. Could be a Rangers, Astros, Padres or Indians fan. At least the Tigers have 2 World Series titles, and MLB's only Triple Crown & 30-game winners to show for the last 50 years.

Also a Tigers fan who loved Verlander. However I was glad to see him traded. Whether or not the prospects ever work out at least he can compete for championship with the Astros. As long as he enters the Hall wearing a Tiger cap I am fine with him in Houston.

'T' SHOULD read "2012 AL Rookie of the Year and MVP"...stupid Triple Crown. Antiquated statistics in a modern statistical game cost Trout an EASY MVP win, but I digress...

When you win the triple crown you're the mvp that year. It's that simple.

Right. Like when Ted Williams won the Triple Crown in 1942 and Joe Gordon of the Yankees won the MVP. Or when he won the Triple Crown in 1947 and Joe DiMaggio won the MVP. Or Gehrig in 1934. Or Chuck Klein in 1933. That's 40% of the times that someone has won the Triple Crown in hitting in the years since the MVP award was established. It's not that simple.

got 'em all with 3:12 left. FYI, LaRussa also managed with the White Sox. And for Quisenberry, you might want to mention the time period he pitched in.

What difference does it make when he pitched? I saw the letter Q and Quisenberry was the only name that came to mind, period. Have the Royals had more than one Q named reliever who happens to be a submariner?

For some reason, my mind went straight to Rickey instead or Robinson. Shouldn't they both be right?

Even though I got almost half of the answers correct, I got zero points. I hang my head in shame. (Especially since I overlooked the question on La Russa, and I'm a die-hard Cardinals fan!)

Brooklyn is not a town.

It was its own city when the Dodgers first began playing there in the early 1890s. Brooklyn became a borough of New York City in 1898 (look up "the Great Mistake of 1898" if you're curious). The Dodgers started playing there shortly before that. Anyway, I think the word "town" is being used colloquially here. People call the place they are from -- Chicago, Atlanta, LA, New Orleans -- their hometown, even if it's a city. And, probably most important, anyone with a working knowledge of baseball history knows the Dodgers played in Brooklyn. It's not like the term "town" makes the question hard to answer.

Weren't they also called the "Amazing Met's"? At least that's what it said on my 69 WS pennant

Consider changing the clue for "M".

Last 30-game winner. (1968)

Any true baseball fan should know that. And any one who bothered to take this quiz should learn that.
