Can a great player be underrated?  Perhaps.  They can at least be under-appreciated.  Such is the case with this guy, Frank Robinson:

As well as this guy, Stan the Man Musial.

Joe Pos has a great post on Musial this week.  Check it out.

That reminds me.... it's a shame that this page is unsponsored. I want my Bronx Banter Premium Subscription Fee to go to a good cause. You hear me, Chyll Will?

1 Musial was grandparents's number one favorite player, and I don't think either have been within 500 miles of St. Louis.

Had a Stan Musial glove. It had four fingers. "The Man" is one of baseball's great monickers, even as good as "The Babe." Go to St. Louis. He is a holy man there.

Came up as a pitcher. Pitched in a game in 1952.

Not that I have any complaints with Joe Pos' article, great arrangement of words to show a new generation one of the greats, but WC Heinz has a piece from the lockerroom on Stan's Last Day that is a must read for all lovers of the game.

"Stan Musial's number 6 was retired by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1963"
