Why Is LaRussa Batting His Worst Hitter Leadoff?
David Eckstein's .350 OBP is good enough for 96th amoungst players who qualify for the batting title. He's not "speedy" (7 steals). He has no power (2 HR). It also seems as if he can't sacrifice (bunted horribly and got a fielder's choice).
However LaRussa is giving him more post-season at bats than any other Cardinal.
I slammed Torre for Womack last year, I can't excuse LaRussa now. "Managerial genius" my ass.
Also, did San Diego, like, install some sort of a medusa in center field or something?
It looked to me like Pujols just turned into a statue after he hit that jack.
