• I did a guest spot over at VEB this morning on Kyle McClellan using pitch fx.
  • MGL posted some initial results on a linear weights based base-running metric.  Has had the 2010 Cardinals +4 as a team (SB removed) and Colby Rasmus was among the top individuals at +5
  • Hazel tweeted last week

bold prediction: Theriot posts a higher WAR than Berkman this year.

  • I can see where Hazel is coming from.  Theriot has the positional advantage and the health advantage.  He will rack up a decent amount of value just by being run out there to SS every day.  Berkman will likely struggle on D, and there is a non-trivial chance that he misses significant time with injury.  All that said, I’m still going to give Berkman the slight edge, 2 WAR to 1.5 WAR.  That leads us to our first ever GHG poll

Who will have a higher WAR in 2011?
