    The Cards’ 2012 first rounder was never able to make the final step…

    Back in the day, didn’t Baltimore have a soft hitting slick fielding SS by the name of Mark Ballengee? Must be related to this agency one would guess.

    Right on, Scotty! From what I heard, both Belanger and his skipper(Earl Weaver), were pretty much Marlboro cigarette chain smokers back in the day. Another player from that era who couldn’t wait to get that third out, so to get off the field and sneak away for a few quick puffs, was Don Gullet of Cincinnati. I would think there were many other ball players from the 70’s who would literally walk a mile for a Camel. Anyone know of any Cardinal players who enjoyed lighting up? Reflecting back to when I was a kid in the 70’s, it’s getting kind of hazy as to what places it was acceptable to smoke…..I’m pretty sure they had ash trays positioned throughout grocery stores. You could smoke in banks. I came from a non-smoking household, but I recall being in friends homes where ashtrays were littered all about. I even recall smelling cigarette smoke from the stall next to me during confession.

    I think Scrabble has more than nine lives. He signed a minor league deal with Arizona.

    Speaking of Ricky “Ricardo” Nolasco, did you know that he has made in excess of 81 million dollars in his baseball career? I bet he’s glad he didn’t decide to enter the teaching profession, as it would have cost him about a cool 80 million in career earnings.

    The mention of Mark Belanger and Earl Weaver in this thread has me sending condolences to the family of the great Frank Robinson.

    F Robby never played with the Cardinals, but battered us around for 10 years as a Red, and his best buddy Vada Pinson suited up for us for a season. And of course Curt Flood tagged along with those guys now and then as well.

    RIP Frank. You showed Bill DeWitt Sr. what a mistake he made when he called you an “old 30” back in the day, and traded you.

    Someone else signed with the Sugar Land Skeeters. Not a Cardinals but a former ML’er.
