Suggest to 36-year-old Dave Bristol that the Reds’ pitching staff is going to have him gray-haired before the season ends and he snorts, “Not me. I’m too young.” Maybe so. But if not gray hair, would you believe ulcers? After the first 79 games, the Reds’ aches-and-pains pitching staff had racked up the magnificent total

Stan Musial recently tabbed this Cardinal club to be the one to “mold the greatest dynasty in the club’s history.” Who could argue with the Man? St. Louis seems intent on a rematch with Detroit in order to exact revenge for the bitter sweep in last year’s World Series with all of the games decided
