Cardinals news from a Sabermetric point of view

Berkman had nothing to apologize for

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

    Well said, Pip! I’m still waiting for someone under the gun to say, “What I said was an honest expression of my own opinion, and if I apologize it will leave me with nothing to do when hell freezes over.”

    Ditto Vaughan7777 on the well said, Pip. Berkman SHOULD have been able to make his comment (which was completely accurate, imo) without any fuss from Selig.

    Can’t say I blame Dewitt and Matheny. Anyone who has dealt with an irrational boss knows that you sometimes have to pick your battles. Dealing with Selig is currently part of the price of doing business in MLB. If Selig is so worried about his image that he would make a fuss over one player’s comments, I’m sure he could find some petty way to make life difficult for the Cardinals organization in the future. They don’t need that, and even in apologizing, Berkman came out looking like the bigger man.
