Red Schoendienst and Eunice Gayson!

Baseball player/coach Red Schoendienst and actress Eunice Gayson had their final hits this week, at the ages of 95 and 90, respectively! A 10-time All-Star, Schoendienst was the last living member of the Cardinals 1946 World Series winning squad, but this was merely the beginning for someone who would spend a ridiculous 76 years in the game, as a player or coach. 76 years on the job! 72 in the bigs, and 67 with the Cardinals organization, managing them to a title in 1967. In all, he nabbed five rings, had his #2 retired by the Cards, and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1989. Good game, Red! Gayson is best known for her role as Sylvia Trench in the first two James Bond films, Dr. No and From Russia With Love, making her the first official Bond girl. Trench was supposed to be a recurring character in the series, like M or Moneypenny, but only got through the first pair of movies before getting the axe. Still – she appears in quite possibly the most famous, most iconic scene in the series, and therefore one of the all-time greats in movie history:

Dondos quietly continues to pile of the numbers here in ’18, getting a 7th death (second only to Sarah’s 10), and cracking the century mark here in their first year of joint pool existence (between them, Kristen and Kevin had ten triple-digit seasons in the past), moving them into the top five. Mike M. finally grabs a second death this year with the 20 points on Gayson – his increasing totals over the past few seasons point to this start being more an abberation than a trend, so look out – this guy has piled up points in bunches in the past. Well done, folks!

Replacement picks due by next Monday!
