    Brian, your article mentioned that free agents can sign with any team the next five days but I think you meant to say they can only sign with their current team the next five days.

    The Wise/Carlton trade was certainly bad for the Cardinals but I guess we had it coming after the Brock/Broglio trade a decade earlier. The universe has a way of evening things out I guess.

    gscottar, thank you for reading and commenting. These weekly articles are written by crdswmn, but this error was mine. I fixed it.

    I read the piece on Medwick’s career which extended well into his forties. That I didn’t realize. He either loved the game tremendously or figured out he couldn’t do anything else but play baseball. My thoughts about Ducky are that he was a gutsy guy and deserved a spot in Cooperstown, NY.

    Thanks for taking us back in time.

    Crdswmn does a really nice job with these weekly history features. I encouraged her to pull them out on their own for greater visibility, but she prefers them as they are. Glad to know you are enjoying them.

    crdswmn did a nice piece on Country Slaughter. He was one of those that had their careers interrupted by WWII, and when he was in his prime years. He was second in the MVP vote in ’42 also had 2 third place MVP years) and was a perennial All-Star.

    I always feel bad when great players like Slaughter start kicking around late in their play days… Enos really held on. I remember him as a NYY and his BB card with a Yankee cap. You know, I always saved all the Card player’s cards and had hundreds of others in the ol’ shoe box which my mother tossed one day while I was away at high school. I would have been a millionaire now! 🙂

    Our keymaster stirred up some curiosity in me with the Billy Southworth section. I googled the book “Southworth…” and its still in print and can be purchased online. There is a sizable “sample” that will give you a good idea of the author’s (John C. Skipper) style of writing and how the book reads for you.

    Southworth had an interesting and mournful life. The book seems to be able to take you back into baseball’s golden years and how a regular “joe” negotiated a long career as a player and manager. The author is a Card fan that grew up in Cub’s country.

    Sorry Marilyn, I missed the byline. The off season reports are always interesting and feature some entertaining pieces. A Card fan’s oasis for the mid-winter doldrums.
