Don't take Vin! We're not ready to lose him yet!

The best hitter this side of Ted Williams.

Also, RIP baseball player man, you helped make the game great.

.. wtf he was alive this whole time? O_O

RIP Mr. The Man

Stan the Man. One of the best baseball players ever. Also one of the more under-rated.
 
2013-01-19 08:35:46 PM
Honestly, I didn't realize he was still alive.  Caps off to you.
 
2013-01-19 08:36:58 PM
A sad day for baseball.  Two great men for entirely different reasons.  Stan was well before my interest in baseball started but his impact was still being felt years later.

/this is one trifecta I'd rather not see filled...
 
2013-01-19 08:37:41 PM
I had no idea he was still alive, well not now.

Si, hell yeah, and "maybe among the common-tard-folk, but not among the beisbol intelligencia."

/though it'd be really nice if the common-tards would mention him more often, definitely
 
2013-01-19 08:41:17 PM
One of the best ever. Rest in peace Mr. Musial.
 
2013-01-19 08:43:08 PM
Thanks Brooklyn Dodger fans...."Here come that Man".....
 
2013-01-19 08:45:27 PM
And he was *still* a St. Louis icon to this day, which says something both about him and about how seriously St. Louis takes its baseball.

As for the third... we've had a manager and a hitter. Sandy Koufax for the tri?

I came to the sports tab to crow about the blues slapping the wings around and now I'm sad.

1,815 hits at home, and 1,815 hits on the road; 1,951 RBI's and 1,949 runs scored. Possibly the most balanced great hitter ever, as well as being one of the greatest gentlemen ever to play the game.
 
2013-01-19 08:53:31 PM
So, we lost both Stan the Man AND Earl Weaver today. Two greats both connected to my hometown Rochester Red Wings...

It's a sad day for baseball. BUT, let's all bear in mind that a game currently being played on a diamond in the middle of an Iowa cornfield just got infinitely more entertaining. I bet Earl is cursing out every member of the 1919 White Sox he can find.

Manager, player, now umpire?  Or someone from a west coast team.

And Musial is going 2 for 5 w/2 RBI's and 2 runs scored.

I find solace in that thought.

Some of the greats have been known by just their first name. Others by just their initials. But, there's only been one just known as The Man
 
2013-01-19 09:05:26 PM
Wow, one of my dad's all time favorites I didn't know how good he was. 22 years and a .331 batting average is crazy.

Yeah, I was gonna say.... Stan's well-known by anyone who can differentiate between their ass and an infield fly.

Yes.Even crazier he was 41 and batted.330.
 
2013-01-19 09:12:06 PM
Name recognition isn't necessarily the same as being underrated. I agree that the guy doesn't get enough credit.

If Stan Musial played in New York, for the Yankees, he'd have been the Babe Ruth to Mickey Mantle's Lou Gehrig (personality traits aside). HE would have been the star.

RIP Stan the Man. Even Albert Pujols had to bow to his greatness by refusing the nickname "El Hombre" at the time Pujols said: "There's only one 'The Man'"

Wolsey: RIP Stan the Man. Even Albert Pujols had to bow to his greatness by refusing the nickname "El Hombre" at the time Pujols said: "There's only one 'The Man'"


Can we start blaming Albert for this?

I mean, he leaves, and a year later Stan dies... coincidence?

In the spring of 1940, he was a sore armed pitcher at one of the lowest levels of the minors - which in those days was LOW. By the end of September of 1941, he was beating the living crap out of National League pitching.

He got the name 'The Man', because he hit especially well in Brooklyn - his life BA at Ebbets was somewhere around <b>.400</b> - and a sportswriter kept hearing fans moan 'here comes that man again', whenever he came to bat.

He actually played sports in high school with Ken Griffey's father - of course, Jr's grandfather.

RIP Stan!

He struck out 40 or more times in a season only 3 time... 2 of those seasons he were his last 2 at the ages of 41 and 42 respectively
 
2013-01-19 09:40:26 PM
It goes to show you how beloved he is when a team with as much history as the Cardinals is calling him "the most beloved member of the Cardinals family" with no qualifications whatsoever.

Thank you Stan, for being such a great role model.  You will most definitely not be forgotten.

I accidently funnied that replying.

My favorite stat is Joe D... He struck out 369 times and homered 361 times.

Up thread it was said he batted .331 in his rookie year.And I saw he he batted .330 at 42.
Career batting avg. .331

//The most consistent 'MAN' evah.

As a Musial whose grandfather was from Donora, PA, I say RIP Stan.

Stan lived 2 doors down from my grandfather's family in Donora and was part of the same Polish Falcons Nest as the other Musials. He actually said that my great-uncle Frank was the greatest athlete he had ever seen.

Blues shut out the Wings at home with 6 goals.

Stan's smiling on this town tonight.

Enjoy the field of dreams, good sir. You will never be forgotten.
