I listened to the 1965 All Star game last night while doing some work around the house.

The NL squad was stacked.

Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Willie Stargell.

Hell, Roberto Clemente and Frank Robinson came off the bench and didn't get in until the 6th or 7th inning.

Joe Torre hit a HR.

Bob Gibson struck out 2 guys in the 9th with the tying run on 2nd to finish off the game.

One thing that really stood out was the pitcher's stats. Guys had records like 14-6 with 12 complete games at the break. The way pitchers are utilized has changed so much through the years.

Were you reminiscing about your early 20s?

Out of those guys, the only ones I remember watching in person are Pete Rose and Willie Stargell.

I remember seeing Frank Robinson, but that was as a manager.

The NL starting outfield (Stargell, Mays, Aaron) accounted for 1,890 career HRs. That has to be a record.

Stargell 475
Mays 660
Aaron 755

Albert Pujols (1333) needs 24 extra base hits to pass Babe Ruth (1356) on the all time list, leaving him behind only Stan Musial (1377), Barry Bonds (1440) and Hank Aaron (1477)

Pujols is currently tied for 4th with Cap Anson on the all time RBI list with 2075. He trails cheater Alex Rodriguez by 11, and cheater Barry Bonds by 139. He is 222 behind the all time leader Hank Aaron.

Is Pujols still playing?! I think the ball he hit in 06/07 against the GOAT organization, the Astros, still hasn’t landed lmao. Dude was amazing.
