Cardinals news from a Sabermetric point of view

A statistical tribute to Stan Musial

Like thousands of others sharing their fond memories of Stanley Frank Musial — our own personal one involves, like many others’, The Man playing his harmonica — we’d like to pay tribute to baseball’s perfect knight, in this case by noting a few of the Cardinal great’s statistical achievements. Of course, as any sabermetrician will remind you, stats tell only part of the story of a ballplayer’s greatness, not least for Musial. But his legacy certainly does include his on-field performance, to which many “traditional” statistics don’t do justice, so here are some ways of looking as Number Six’s career that may not be covered in the typical eulogies.
