May 16, 1969

Despite a successful West Coast trip, Ralph Houk has gone back to the drawing board in an effort to break the New Yorkers’ slide to oblivion. Things have been tough for the Yanks since 1964, but never as tough as now, perhaps because of misplaced optimism. Fed up with abominable play in all departments, Houk

August 17, 1967

All the Braves’ Clete Boyer wanted was to make the trade look good. Boyer doesn’t necessarily mean Chi-Chi Olivo and Bill Robinson for Clete Boyer.

April 8, 1967

Bill Robinson already has proved to be the best Yankee rookie since 1962, when Joe Pepitone first made the squad. But there are many who are betting that, by mid-season, he will rate as the best Yankee rookie since Mickey Mantle in 1951. Robinson’s first spring training wasn’t as spectacular as Mantle’s, but the pleasant
