    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.

    (Did you mean to put this on the OF thread?)

    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….LOL

    I truly enjoyed Marilyn’s piece on Kurowski. Actually I’ve liked all the “Blasts from the Past” stories.

    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.

    Thank you. This was an interesting research project. Took some extra digging. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    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.

    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”

    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.

    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.
