I asked if Crutchfield ever played for the Cardinals, since they were the nearest big league team. Eventually they explained to me about the segregation of the time.

Equipment manager Rip Rowan to Hall-of-Famer and Coach Emeritus Red Schoendienst Moar Goold quote for when the P-D erases it: The prolonged skid left some Cardinals searching for ways to bust the slump. Skip Schumaker and Ryan Theriot had Kyle Lohse shave lines in their hair, but only on one side, from the temple back. Schumaker suggested they go old school and wear their cuffs high to reveal red stirrups. Ryan Theriot and Yadier Molina agreed, and before taking the field Holliday decided "to join the little fellas." That's why he needed Schoendienst's pants -- they fit his waist, but were short enough to show off the socks. Wearing them the way Schoendienst does, with the black and white rings showing at the top of the stirrup, Holliday drilled a fastball from Royals' reliever Greg Holland with one out in the eighth to reverse the Royals' one-run lead. Colby Rasmus set up the winner with a leadoff single off a lefty reliever, and on a hit-and-run he sped to second to avoid a double play on Albert Pujols' sharp grounder. ... La Russa said the instant production was the result of Holliday's "hard work." Others could chalk it up to talent. Perhaps it was the pants. They'll be back Sunday. "I would think so," Holliday said. "You don't change up (after) a win." See also the previous Man Stew 2011 installment: http://www.vivaelbirdos.com/2011/6/7/2210828/man-stew-2011-vs-the-injury-bug

Many thanks to the guest-posters and guest-reposters who kept VEB going while I was away. I return today, but not this morning—here's a thread to hold any and all rumors about the Cardinals talking long-term-deal with some hitter who couldn't even stick at third base.

I'm just passing through but here's a clean thread for the rest of the evening.

Speaking to Tim McKernan on KFNS radio, Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse explained why departed shortstop Brendan Ryan was an issue in the team clubhouse. "I like Brendan, and I think a lot of guys wanted him to do well," Lohse said. "We all tried to help him out and tried to help him understand what being a professional was ... but I honestly think that when things aren't going so good, and you're still kind of the way he is … when you're still kind of forgetting to do the things you're supposed to, it starts to wear on you. He by no way is any reason why we didn't take the NL Central — but, I think just one little distraction that kind of rubbed some people the wrong way and it's just one of those things that doesn't help a team out. Brendan Ryan is who he is, and he's going to continue being that guy and personally I like him. I just don't think he's ever going to change and the inability to get serious about things kind of makes people really tired of you." If this has been posted on VEB already, my apologies. It was packed at the bottom of a Rams column. Thought I'd share.
