At This Point Brandon Moss Isn’t Due Anymore

Update: This was written before the game on 9/27. So add 1 hit, 4 at bats, and 2 Ks to Moss’s numbers.

The “due” factor is a time honored baseball tradition handed down generation to generation. It’s not something that can be measured by a fancy metric. It’s just that feeling you get in the 9th when Albert Pujols is coming up to face Brad Lidge. Lidge is due to blow a save. Pujols is due a bomb1. Then magic happens.

All 2000s St. Louis Cardinals: Second Baseman

Do you ever stay up at night thinking about who the best St. Louis Cardinals second baseman of the last 15 years is? Well, we do. That’s why we’re compiling a team of the best Cardinals at each position from the 2000s. We’ve already done Catcher and First Base.

Freese hasn’t been terrible over the last few weeks batting .311 with 1 HR and 9 RBIs over the last 15 days, but with Matt Carpenter’s sudden appearance as an All-star leadoff hitter, and Wong lurking in AAA the move has been coming for awhile. It’ll be interesting to see how the Cardinals move on with Freese, Wong, and Carpenter for the rest of the season.
