Stan Musial

The Man vs The Mang

by on March 9, 2012 · 0 comments

  It’s one on one.  Mano a mano.  There can be only 1.  It’s Stan Musial versus Albert Pujols.  One is a legend from another time, and the other is a legend in his own time.  There is no wrong answer (unless you pick Albert).  Seriously, it’s time to really have a clash of the [...]

Having read some of the other great lists posted at the other United Cardinal Blogger sites today, it’s both clear to me and worries me a bit that I’ve interpreted the assignment differently. Not convinced that’s a good or a bad thing, I’ve decided to press forward with my own interpretation and list. As such, you’ll [...]

On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are.

When the St. Louis Cardinals Public Relations team talks, we listen.  When they send out a simple request to help support Stan Musial, we break out the kevlar jerseys to take to the baseball fields in his honor.  Fortunately, all the team asked the Cardinal blogger community to do was help get out the most [...]

My Opening Day Pitch

by on March 30, 2011 · 2 comments

There’s nothing quite like opening day at Busch Stadium.  This year, the Cardinals have selected former Cardinal great Jim Edmonds to throw out the first pitch.  As I’ve already suggested, I believe it would be apropos for Jimmy Ballgame to launch it from either CF or the bullpen just because he’s awesome enough to do [...]

Keep Standing

by on March 24, 2011 · 7 comments

That’s right, just keep “Standing for Stan” until directed otherwise.  Ignore the protestations of the naysayers, especially the ones named Murray Chass.  Mr. Chass has really jumped the shark and crafted a masterpiece worthy of praise, alright.  Click here for it.  It’s practically a Michelangelo’s David of what is unsaid.  It’s the Sistine Chapel of [...]

A Gentlemen’s Duel

  The Versus network was showing “Greatest MLB Rivalries: Cardinals vs Cubs” the other night, and I happily volunteered one hour of my life to watching the show.  I pretty much know the contents by heart, but I never pass up the opportunity to listen to a retelling of the “Curse of the Billy Goat“.  [...]
