Sorry for the lateness of this post. I had to evacuate from my vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina due to hurricane Irene. Today’s quickly posted trade tree covers Vinegar Bend Mizell.
Mizell was a strong pitcher during the regular season for the 1960 World Series winning team, throwing three shutouts among his eight complete games. He didn’t fair so well during the postseason, throwing only 2.1 innings in two games (one start), and allowing four runs. Julian Javier started at second for the Cards for over a decade.
