  • Stan the Man is no more.....

    A local icon, even though he was a Cardinal. You could make a legitimate case for his inclusion among the very, very short list of the best to ever play the game. He also was the type of gentlemen many of the others on that list were not.

    Do widzenia and dobranoc Stan!

    Stan "The Man". Babe what or A punk Rod. Stan was a great person, just not a great ball player.

        Stanley Frank Musial was a God to Baseball. He is nothing today's players will EVER live up to. Musial exuded class. He served in the military as Ted Williams did. Stan did more for St.Louis, he and Lou Brock, then many will ever do. The ignorant razzer who said ,"Here comes THAT man again." Only made Musial more a legend. I'd like to see ANY ballplayer today have a gall bladder taken out then play not long after. I also heard from my daddy Musial's g.b. ruptured. No ballplayer I see today can ever EVER hold a candle to Musial. I have pictures of his statue. The harmonica is now silent(Musial played it at games) The Man has left the building.
        RIP
        He will be missed.

          Are you listening Derek "I can't play in the All-Star Game" Jeter.

            To me, I say this. Jeter and all you pretty boys of today.
            Take a good hard f--king look at the real men from 1980-on back to 1869, and tell me, can you even MATCH any of them? No.

              Good grief. Even the backwoods ball games we played, they couldn't handle. We played sometimes from sunup to sundown as a kid. Can you all do that? And we were rough as little cobs too.

                Come now reb.

                Musial was a great, great player.
                Its nice you think so highly of him. He'll be missed by lots of people.
                But there is no reason to slam anyone in your rush to praise him.
                You frankly have no idea how tough Jeter or any other player is, or whether Musial or any player from 1980 on back to 1869 was tougher or not as tough. Trying to compare their "toughness" is both pointless and impossible.
                So honor Musial.
                But don't knock any other player.
                Based on what I know of Musial, he'd be disappointed that you're doing so.

                  I'm just saying I think the players of yesteryear were tougher. I don't think, once the all-star game came in 1933, many of that generation skipped them as today's players do. Many due to their lifestyle off the field I don't respect. It isn't just Yankees. It is many different players.

                    I don't think you could be more mistaken. Behavior or lifestyle was no better earlier, it is just publicized more today. No TV during the days of the Babe, no 24 hour news cycle until recently and no personal communication devices used by anyone looking for 10 seconds of fame earned by providing a scoop on someone famous behaving badly!

                    The players aren't any less tough now. Look how many more come back from injury now that were career ending in the past. They are also bigger, stronger and faster. I don't blame a player for not participating in an all-star game. Why risk all those future earnings for a game that means nothing?!
