Musial Musings

Like the Head Barkeep says, the Cardinals are a classy organization that can justifiably take pride in their tradition. I also don’t doubt that Hall would be on the 15 day disabled list if Gibson was on the mound for the Redbirds tonight. Old school is as old school does. If anyone missed Joe Posnanski’s article on Stan Musial, go read it.

The best line, however, is from a comment: A while back someone asked Stan how he thought he would hit against today’s pitching. Stan said: “Oh, I guess about .275.” Only that high his interviewer asked? “Well, you have to remember I am 85 years old!”
