- 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
