Was talking to a fellow Yankee fan who asked how it is possible for so many players to go out with injuries this year? We both remember that in 1961 the Yankees had Moose Skowron on first, Richardson on second, Kubek short, Boyer 3rd, Maris, Mantle and Hector Lopez or Bob Cerv outfield and Yogi behind the plate. The entire season. And the lineup didn't change that much year in and year out. Now these guys take a step or a swing and their muscles are shot. They played baseball their whole lives but no weight training. Crazy stuff.
