Cardinals news from a Sabermetric point of view

John Mozeliak notes that the Cardinals “still think we have some holes.” One is right field, stomach and Carlos Beltran would fill it well.

    Thats nice, but I think a way more interesting discussion is LaRussa’s decision to have Jay sacrifice after Theriot lead off the game with a single. It’s hard for me to understand how this makes any sense whatsoever. Sure hope the great Earl Weaver wasn’t watching. He wasn’t a fan of giving up outs ever. He’d probably rather sleep with poisonous snakes than do this in the first inning. What does Fungoes think about this move?

    Oh, the reason I didn’t write about that play was because I would’ve broken my editorial policy against swearing. 😉 I don’t care if Cliff Lee is on the mound — if you’re bunting in the first inning with your #2 guy, he shouldn’t be batting #2.
