Stan Musial’s funeral took place today. The eulogy was given by Bob Costas, who Musial had specifically asked to speak. He started out with one of the better Yogi Berra quotes you’ll ever hear: ”Always go to your friends’ funerals. Otherwise, they won’t come to yours.” And the rest of it was excellent.
A fitting farewell for The Man:
- Albert Pujols was insulted when someone asked him if he can put up Mike Trout numbers (103)
- Manny Machado calls $519K salary for 2014 “disappointing” (88)
- Is Barry Bonds really getting a “fair hearing?” (88)
- Ryan Braun calls himself an “artist,” doesn’t care what fans on the road will shout at him (81)
- Giants players love having Barry Bonds at spring training (77)
