Did u see where Stan Musial and Earl Weaver died today ? While Stan was a little before my time, I remember Earl well. He was Bobby Cox vrs Umpire, before Bobby Cox. Musial was arguabley the best hitter ever.

Yeah I agree on Earl Weaver. A great manager. Believed in great pitching and the 3 run homer.
Heard a stat on Stan that in 20+ years he never struck out more that 50 times in a season. He also had the exact number of hits at home, 1830, as he did on the road, 1830.
I guess someone built a baseball field in a cornfield somewhere. "If you build it they will come."

I believe it was Earl's record that Bobby broke in his final season when he became the most ejected manager....

Yeah, I posted on FACEBOOK that we lost two HALL OF FAMERS within hours of each other and in a year when no one was elected by the regular ballot......

You would have thought they would have elected Dale Murphy as a statement. He done it right.....All they done was make a statement against the Roid users. Letting one in that done it right would have would have sent a strong message imo....

I agree 100% (see Rebels and Indians can agree on something). Dale will be elected by the Veterans Committee and at that point, I would almost be willing to buy a ticket to Cooperstown.... almost. Folks that just look at the stats on Murphy miss the most important thing about his talents... there was no one else on the team that would have made an impact on the game on a regular basis. There was NEVER a reason for the pitcher to give Murph a ball any where near the strike zone. No one above him or more importantly, no one behind him was a threat! Two Time MVP with the Braves of his era (history lesson: the first of the 14 in a row was a WORST TO FIRST team!)

There used to be a joke about the Braves of that era....

I called and asked what time the game started tonite. They asked me what time can I be there. I asked if they had any good seats left and they said, oh yeah, by the way do you pitch?

George Wallace, a black commedian, back in those days was bragging about the fans in a town he was working in, said, "I'm from Atlanta so I don't know what it's like to have a professional team in your town!"

If you've never heard of him, he was great... here is a sample...

I remember one time he said something like, "Hell all I have to do is introduce myself and I get a laugh!" (Some of these kids will not get that one at all....)
