    Pip,
    Love your blog. Your unending praise for Keith Hernandez is touching. Does it have anything to do with his contributions for the Mets?

    -Bravo

  2. Pip Says:

    Thanks, Bravo! Your praise means a lot. As for Hernandez, I am now capable of appreciating his work as a Met, even at the expense of the Cardinals during my years of wandering in the Mets wilderness. That’s to say nothing of his brief sojourn as an Indian, during which he was able to usher in that club’s golden period!

    What about Bob Caruthers??? I know he is technically not a Cardinal, but he is the most deserving member of the franchise, if not all of baseball.

  4. Pip Says:

    Good call, Zubin. Parisan Bob does merit serious consideration. But while I would include him as a “Cardinal” by extending the definition to the entire franchise history, he actually played a majority of his games with Brooklyn. As much as I’d like to claim him for our own, by my standards, I can’t.

    Thanks for mentioning him.

    Thanks Pip. Its been a long time since I last posted regularly here…

    Caruthers played most of his games with the (Cardinal Franchise) Browns — 425 / 7XX I think, but he pitched more games with Brooklyn. I think he pitched in 165 Browns games of ~400 in his career.
