Baseball happenings.

Ex-Yankees’ pitcher Johnny Kucks has died at the age of 80. Kucks pitched for the Yanks 1955-1959 and for the KC A’s 1959-1960. In 1956, Kucks went 18-9, 3.85, ERA+ 101. He tossed a 3-hit shutout in Game 7 of the WS, beating the Dodgers 9-0. For his career, he was 54-56, 4.10, ERA+ 93. He was 1-0, 1.89 in the World Series. That Game 7 start was his only WS start. He relieved in seven other games.

Brad Ausmus will be replacing the retiring Jim Leyland as Tigers’ manager & Matt Williams replaces the retiring Davey Johnson in Washington.

As for free agency, soon we’ll hear who received tenders (like Granderson, Kuroda?) and who didn’t (Hughes and Joba?). Of course, then we find out who accepted those tenders.
