HALL OF FAME BASEBALL WRITER RICK HUMMEL MAKES THE PICKS
Manager Mike Shildt's recent statement that the Cardinals' current squads contain five Type 1 Starter Pitchers inspired us to publish Rick Hummel's compilation of the top 50 cardinal pitchers since joining the 1892 National League franchise.
This list excludes the legendary sizes of 1888 St. Louis Brown's right-hander Charles "Silver" King, a native of St. Louisan who won 45 games and 64 out of 66 starts graduated from the American Federation team. And it will also not give right-handed Elton "Ice Box" Chamberlain who had a gain of 0.719 points (46-18) for the 1889 St. Louis's entry into that league while playing at least one game played both hands.
But it will contain "One Tough Dominican".

CREDENTIALS: If You thought he was. In the regular season he got for the Cardinals (95-44, .683 win percentage), he was good. He felt he was 10-4 in 18 postseason, with a 3-0 in two World Series.

. 2 DIZZY DEAN
STL SEASONS: 1930; 1932-37
CREDENTIALS: A line-drive from Earl Averill did not break his big toe in the 1937 All-Star Game ("broken, hell, the damned thing's broken," Dean said quoted), Jay Hanna "Dizzy" Dean might have had five more years like his five between 1932 and 1936. He won 120 games in that range, including 30 in 1934, when he was the last National League pitcher to win so many. He injured his arm and tried to favor the foot, and he was never the same.
At the end of the 1947 season, he briefly came out of the radio booth to release four scoreless innings for the St. Louis Browns at the age of 37. He had criticized staff in the air. But he suffered an Achilles tendon stop, which thwarted the bases after a single exercise, and later he said he was grateful that the muscle he was suffering from was not in his mouth.
