Merger Discussion[edit]

  • Merge I agree with the merge because the world series article could benefit from the information and it is an essential part of the series anyways. - Patman2648 03:39, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge Like Patman2648 said above, The Cookie Game was an essential part of the 1947 World Series, so it would only be fitting if it was included in the main article. --Nishkid64 21:08, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge, but probably leave a re-direct from the The Cookie Game to the article about the world series. Greg Back 13:53, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Picture date problem[edit]

Change the date on the picture of Gionfriddo from January 1948 to October 5, 1947. The picture was taken on October 5, 1947 and put in a January 1948 magazine. 1779Days (talk) 08:30, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Unsupported comments[edit]

The Game 4 (Cookie Game) subsection posits that the intentional walk to Reiser (who scored the winning run) in the bottom of the ninth comprised questionable/poor strategy. This may be so. This subsection reads that the move 'was criticized in hindsight'. No support/citation accompanies this statement. If this is, or was, an author/editor's opinion, indicate with different language. An assertion that something 'was criticized' needs citation, support. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thegooddogman (talkcontribs) 04:06, 20 April 2013 (UTC) Also, citation, source, support, regarding Reiser injury could/would help reader.Thegooddogman (talk) 04:12, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

The Game 6 subsection asserts that circumstances of situation forced Gionfriddo to back-pedal rather than turn around. Turning around and running takes less time than it does to back-pedal, especially when a ball is hit several steps away. The assertion that the ball Gionfriddo caught "was hit so hard and deep" that he "did not have time to turn around" and "literally ha[d] to 'back-back-back'-pedal" is unsupported, probably because it is unsupportable. I think that this line really detracts from an otherwise informative subsection, and, for these reasons, urge removal of this particular line. Thegooddogman (talk) 04:25, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
