I don't think I want to hang out with the Mick underneath the stands though.

By "fun to hang out with," I assume you mean the Mantle of 1955, rather than the Mantle of 1990.

Yes, and what makes it even funnier is that Drabowsky was a Cardinal twice - once, when we bought him from the A's in 1965 - but failed to protect him from the Rule 5 draft (I don't know what the rules on the draft were back then, but Drabowsky was picked twice in Rule 5; the other time was four years earlier when Cincinnati took him from the Braves) and he was grabbed by Baltimore, which went on to win the World Series in 1966 with Drabowsky setting a WS record with 11 strikeouts in relief, including 6 in a row (also a record).

We then got him from the Orioles after the 1970 season in a trade for Jerry Davanon. He did a good job for us in 1971, not as good in 1972 (plus Schoendiesnt didn't like his propensity for firecrackers and other practical jokes) and he was released in August, signed by the White Sox, and finished after that season.
