Stan Musial’s Greatest Accomplishment Occurred Off The Field

The greatest St.Louis Cardinal, Stan Musial, turns 90 Sunday, November 21, 2010. The St.Louis Post-Dispatch printed a special section for the occasion, which reminded me of Stan’s most outstanding accomplishment. It occurred but 50 years ago, and now seems to be impossible. After a disappointing season in 1959, Stan asked for and received a 25% pay cut. Can anyone imagine any of today’s athletes doing that? Stan “The Man” truly represents baseball and America at their best.

Happy Birthday Stan!

Cardinals Exercise Option On Pujols

Belleville News Democrat reports –

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday exercised their $16 million contract option on first baseman Albert Pujols for 2011. The team also announced that left-handed reliever Trever Miller’s option for 2011 was met. Miller needed to pitch in at least 45 games to have his $2 million salary exercised for next season. Pujols, 30, led the National League in home runs (42) and RBIs (118), and he tied Matt Holliday for the team lead in batting at .312. Holliday’s average, however, was slightly higher: .31208 to .31175. Pujols hit his 400th career home run and also set the franchise mark for career multi-homer games with 39.

Mark McGwire Returns As Cards Hitting Coach

mcguireSTL Today reports –

The Cardinals will announce at a Monday morning press conference Tony La Russa’s decision to return for a 15th season as manager. Today’s run-up, however, features mounting evidence that La Russa’s return after a 2-week deliberation will be dwarfed by former Redbirds first baseman Mark McGwire’s return from a self-imposed 8-year exile to become the team’s hitting coach.

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols on Wednesday morning underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow with debridement of bone spurs and removal of bone chips.

La Russa May Not Return To Cardinals In 2010

After the Cards’ lightning fast exit from the 2009 playoffs, manager Tony La Russa is contemplating not returning for 2010. The Cards’ management stated that the job is still La Russa’s, if he wants it.

LaRussaKSDK reports –

Tony La Russa’s not certain he wants to return for a 15th season as St. Louis Cardinals manager. He was disappointed in his team’s response after Matt Holliday’s dropped fly ball for what would have been the final out in Game 2, allowing the Dodgers to rally and then put away a reeling team with a 5-1 victory Saturday in St. Louis. “I’ve just started thinking about it,” La Russa said while attempting to organize his cluttered office at Busch Stadium. “I really thought we’d make a series of it.” The 65-year-old La Russa asks himself the same questions: Does ownership want me back? Do the players want me back? After all these years, are they still responding to his brand of leadership? “Is what you’re saying not helpful?” La Russa said. “Those thoughts go through your mind.”

Pujols Named Player Of Decade

pujolsSportingNews reported –

No muss, no fuss, no drama—and no longer much debate about who is the best player in baseball. For much of the decade, the debate focused on Rodriguez and Barry Bonds. But in nine seasons, Pujols has never not surpassed a .300 average, 30 home runs and 100 RBIs. Those Hall of Fame numbers (by age 29) define him only slightly more than his all-around pursuit of excellence.

Twitter Sued By Baseball Manager

larussaprofile460apr11smSTLtoday reports –

Apparently, the Tweets stop with Tony. St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is suing the micro-blogging and social networking site Twitter, Inc., over what the skipper and his attorney describe as trademark infringement, cybersquatting and misappropriation of likeness and name. The suit, filed in San Francisco about a month ago, concerns the Twitter name tag Tony La Russa (or http://www.twitter.com/tonylarussa) and the manager’s claim that it was an unofficial and unauthorized use of his name. The fake page allegedly had La Russa’s picture and some vulgar updates, a few of which were Cardinals-related.
