Louis Arroyo was saving a bunch of games for the Yankees back in ‘61. I remember hearing a sportscaster back then announcing that Louis had signed for the ‘62 season and that the “sigh” heard from the Yankee clubhouse was really from Whitey Ford.
Joe Page had a couple of good years for the Bombers in the late 1940’s also. If I remember right he was high up in the MVP voting those years also. He threw pure heat and liked his belts after the game.
