From the SABR NYC chapter meeting:

What two players headed to spring training with the Mets are the current MLB leaders in hita and stolen bases for the decade of 2010-2018?

What two MLB players share the current lead in HRs for the decade?

my guess on hits is Cano, maybe? Had to look up the SBs but won't answer since i cheated.

I don't know about this quiz ... maybe it's old? Delmon Young does not have more hits since 2000 than Christian Yelich

More hits since '10 i mean

You're probably right--that would explain a lot. Surely Trout has more hits than Tulowitzki this decade...

That quiz is from 2013, the date is sort of hidden near the bottom of the page.

Also from Saturday...

Bob Gibson's WS record was 7-2. What two pitchers (both starters) defeated him?

What team has defeated the Yankees all 3 times they met in a postseason series?

Lolich was one of them, game 7 in '68. The other must have been early in the '64 Series, so I'll say Ford.

yes, and close but no cigar

yes; my incorrect guess was Cleveland

Since clem's guess for the Bob Gibson question was wrong, I figured it had to be Bouton, since I knew he won two games in that series. But that's also wrong! So I cracked and looked it up. Great question.

I looked it up too--wish it'd been Bouton, but timely.
