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

Rites of Spring: Red Schoendienst Photos

I was just seized by the notion. How lucky are we to have all these Hall of Famers as fixtures in the clubhouse?

A couple from Scott Rovak. 2011 advising Tony staying young; even Colby laughs What do you think of that contract, Tony? Whaddaya say, Mo? So, didn't work it out, huh?
