R.I.P. Stan "The Man Unusual" Musial. As a fellow Polish American, I always held "Stash" in extremely high esteem. I always liked Musial more than his contemporary, Williams. While Williams would talk for hours about hitting, I thought Musial summed up hitting pretty well.
"You wait for a strike, then you knock the **** out of it."
I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape—
the loneliness of it—the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it,
the whole story doesn't show.
