Lou Brock Dead at 81
0

Lou Brock, Hall-of-Fame outfielder for the Cubs rival St. Louis Cardinals, passed away at the age of 81. Brock, for those old enough to remember, was drafted and brought up to the majors by the Cubs. However, they didn't like his attitude and traded him to their rivals in one of the most lopsided trades in baseball history, receiving journeyman pitcher Ernie Broglio in return. Brock set the all-time MLB records for steals as well as playing on several world championship teams for the Cards while Broglio never delivered. RIP, Lou.

Probably one of the top five biggest trade blunders of the loveable loser Cubs.

This trade probably led to the old adage......"you don't trade to a rival in your own division."

Anyhow....RIP Lou!

Thanks, guys. Fighting a big nodule in my lung which kicks my a*z when it's acting up,  complicated by covid worries. Not thought to be cancerous, a weird type of inflammatory pneumonia I've had since November 2019, taking big steroid doses. So much for making it in pro sports now.

Sorry to hear that and glad to hear that.

Sorry to hear about your nodule, but I am glad it is not cancerous.
