Good that Martinez had a handful of good games late, but look at his entire 2019 season as well as his yearly production trend from 2017 through 2019.

I just responded on the thread where I read about Jose. I know his 2019 season was not all that great but would you care to tell me whose was great in 2019. He’s gone and am sorry to see him go but now we have Fowler to keep the clubhouse in a happy mood….LOLApril 6, 2020 at 8:47 am #126063April 13, 2020 at 8:08 am #126540
The Cardinal Nation's Monday Blast from the Past remembers former #stlcards catcher Walker Cooper, who starred in three World Series in the 1940’s, left in a salary dispute and returned to St. Louis to close his 18-year Major League career. (free) https://t.co/P0P8jtEct3 pic.twitter.com/vwblwvgTPs

I truly enjoyed Marilyn’s piece on Kurowski. Actually I’ve liked all the “Blasts from the Past” stories.April 20, 2020 at 10:23 am #127080
Thank you. I enjoy writing them.April 27, 2020 at 8:19 am #127513May 4, 2020 at 8:09 am #127990
In this week’s #stlcards Blast from the Past, we remember a pitcher who was a late bloomer, but after an arm injury ended his starting career, Ted Wilks became one of the best relief pitchers in the National League. (free) https://t.co/HnCQLQPsY5 pic.twitter.com/QhYr3NWFHR

Marilyn…. The Sherdel blast was interesting…. it seems that some pitchers come on from being unknown to having some superior seasons as wee willie did, and then fade back into the shadows of time. Good reading.May 18, 2020 at 8:31 am #128919
Thank you. This was an interesting research project. Took some extra digging. I’m glad you enjoyed it.May 25, 2020 at 8:26 am #129289May 25, 2020 at 12:01 pm #129296
Another intriguing “blast” Marilyn. Blades’ career took that up to the crest route culminating in ’25, a great season for him. He had career highs in nearly every offensive stat. His numbers slowly went downward after that. The managing jobs he filled and the post-career bouncing around also made his story interesting. I would have loved to have a conversation with him.May 25, 2020 at 12:05 pm #129297
Thank you.June 1, 2020 at 7:12 am #129571June 1, 2020 at 8:46 am #129579
Marilyn… you’re finding some real characters from days gone by. Paulette’s story goes in the file “interesting guy best forgotten”. “I Almost Got Away with It”June 8, 2020 at 7:00 am #129860June 8, 2020 at 7:26 am #129861mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
Nicely written mini-biography on this former player who was the Cardinals’ first black player. Noteworthy that Gussie Busch hired him, not for political reasons, but because he thought it might help him sell beer to the black segment of consumers.June 15, 2020 at 9:12 am #130632
In our weekly Blast from the Past, we remember the first black #stlcards pitcher, Bill Greason, who has served others in a long and productive life. The 95-year old is the team’s oldest living former player. (free) https://t.co/NjamWn4dGS pic.twitter.com/rZS0S8rpvF

Blix was before my time but he sure did get around. I wonder if he gave haircuts to his teammates. Hey, this guy had plenty of stickers on his luggage and got paid to see the U.S. A good life for a guy that obviously loved playing the game. Sad ending.
Another great read Marilyn.June 22, 2020 at 11:34 am #131161
Thank you.June 29, 2020 at 9:00 am #131804
Now that plans for the 2020 season are in place, our Monday #stlcards team Notebooks are back, but still include Blasts from the Past, which this week highlights two team Hall of Famers who hit for the cycle. Written by @Marilyncolor (free) https://t.co/FDCCxMmZan pic.twitter.com/3CycDmINwm
