Very sad to hear about the passing of Matty Alou. As I Giants fan I still can't forgive them for trading Matty to Pittsburgh in 1965, when he hit .342 and won the batting crown. RIP Matty.

Lifetime .315 hitter as a Cardinal...

The craftiest batsman I've ever seen. Rod Carew was close, but had more pure talent. I loved Matty Alou plate appearances. He's no doubt chopped a bad pitch over St. Peter's head at the golden gates.
