Viva El Birdos scribe lboros knows so much about Cardinals baseball that he spends most of his columns debating himself
. Topics that have taken on great controversy in his own mind (and thus spilled upon the digital page) include: Who's had a better first 600 at-bats, So Taguchi or Willie McGee? (Remember, you've got to consider "the changes to busch stadium between the 1980s and 2000s" and "the difference in run-scoring context between the two eras.") Also, wonders lboros, has shortstop David Eckstein been a net asset to the team or a liability since coming over from the Angels? Sure, his NRAA -- that's Net Runs Above Average -- sucks, but his "Situational Intelligence" is solid. The blog features commentary from other armchair managers and links to other baseball blogs, but in Cardinal Nation, lboros is tops: thought-provoking, thorough and well-written. Viva "Viva"!
