    Very sad. Glad I got to meet him so many times. A true legend, on and off the field.

    It's odd to look at the main MLB forum and see a thread about Stan dying and a thread about Pujols declining so badly. Remember when Pujols was seen as the second coming of "The Man?"

    I'm not trying to make light of the fact that Stan is gone, just noting how odd the front page looks.

    It's a fair point. I mean we all talked about if Pujols was gonna surpass Stan as the greatest cardinal ever. Obviously things went differently.

    Insanely good player!! I would place him in the top 5 of all time. This may sound strange, but I've always felt that he was overlooked a little.

    What a sad day for the city of St. Louis, and the world of baseball.

    You were one of the greatest Stan. You truly were.........."The Man"

    Stan the man was a guy that I saw on TV when I was a kid. My grandfather told me to watch the way he swung the bat. I could never get it right.........
    Rest in Peace Stan. Condolences to family and friends.

    I think that was part of it but the bigger part for me about why it pissed me off so bad was Pujols himself sayin things like its not just about money, he wanted to be the next Stan Musial, this was where he wanted to be and so on

    Then free agency gets here and what's it all come down to? Money. To me what he did was pretty stupid. When you have a chance to have a legacy like some of the greatest names in baseball history: Musial, Williams, Gehrig, Dimmagio, Bench, Mantal, kaline, Gibson, Ripken jr, Banks, Brett, Schmidt, clemente, Gwynn, Chipper Jones.

    He made 111 million dollars here and was offered somewhere around 215 million more. Was it really worth it to give up that kinda company for 35 million dollars? When your already gonna make that much? I can't answer that but for someone who preached so much it wasn't about money it sure as hell seems like it was. But hey I guess the angels made him feel "wanted" right?

    IMHO Musial will never be surpassed as the greatest cardinal ever. In an age where staying with one team isn't a norm it seems hard to surpass IMO
