Jon Jay NL Batting Champ 2012? - Have your say over at Fangraphs

The 2012 FAN projections over at fangraphs are now open! Viva El Hive-mind.

Unfrozen Caveman Saberist (Tango)

A nice little shortcut for calculating wOBA based on player's day at the plate. Tango says: Instead of "1" for a walk or hit batter, think "0.7". Instead of "1" for a single or reaching on error, think "0.9". Instead of "1" for a double or triple, think "1.3". Instead of "1" for a HR, think "2.0".

Rasmus for [INSERT PLAYER HERE] FanShot Thread...OR...Stop the Fire Burning Up the FanPosts, way-ohh

Rasmsus for McCutchen by a new guy/gal here. Rasmus for Bautista by a new guy/gal here. NEW! - Rasmus for Rasmus by purple_haze. He wins. Wordle with the most-used words in Rasmus trade proposals: right here and linked in the title. PS - purely random that "Jesus really Rasmus" is right in the middle.

Who was the best defensive 1B of the decade? One guess.

Shocker, it's the Mang. MGL over at THE BOOK blog has Pujols as the top 1st baseman in terms of runs saved (UZR). Pujols #1 - suck it John Olerud.

Tweeting for Powder Blues (PBs)

Our (blue)grassroots campaign for 2010 Powder Blue Saturdays next year begins in earnest. Origins of it here. I would love to see the Powder Blues back as a 3rd jersey. We have Sunday hats, why can't we have Saturday jerseys that remind us of how great of a season 1982 was? I've used the Twitter to the best of my ability - Dgoold and The Hawk. That is the extent of my knowledge of Cardinal-related tweeters. Hash-up those "powderblues" if you're down.

1967 Cardinals WAR (from Rally's WAR Index). A team that went 101-60 with strength at all positions. I wasn't around when this team played, but if you were, I'd love to hear a story or two. Quick hits: Orlando Cepeda's 7.1 and Tim McCarver's 6.0 were both the best of their careers. Nelson Briles! Stepped in after Gibby broke his leg. The two combined to provide over 6 WAR. Roger Maris produced big time for the Birdos in his second-to-last year, putting up 3.3 WAR.

I was clicking around on the Cards' fangraphs page to see Bill James' 2008 projections, and Braden Looper's caught my eye.For reference, Looper in 2007 (IP / ERA / WHIP / K/BB ratio / K/9 ratio): ...
