The outpouring of love for Stan Musial, who died tonight at the age of 92, has been incredible:

    It seems that every idol or hero disappoints his or her fans at some point, however minor the transgression, requiring some defense of the hero. The most amazing thing about Stan Musial is that he never disappointed.

      Amen! A man we could all look up to!

    RIP Mr. Musial.

    But I have to ask, there’s a Card’s Nation?

Sorry you are gone, you were a MLB God in this sport and i will always pay my respects… RIP…Also pete never had half the class you did..God Bless

      I live in Cincinnati, in fact drove right by Pete’s high school twice just yesterday. Don’t even think of that POS in a thread that’s a tribute to the game’s greatest gentleman.

      Dirty:

      The name Musial and (the other guy) should never be used in the same sentenence. I thought the world of (the other guy) until the lying and gambling came out. I know now who Rose truly was.
      “The Man” was so much classier it isn’t funny. And a better all around ball player.

    What did Murray Chass–you know, the blogger–have to say?

    Right now, somewhere up in heaven, Stan is graciously signing a baseball for St. Peter.
