08.04: Tommy Edman went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the second game Thursday against the Cubs. (Edman
had his strong game while hitting second for the first time this year.
He'd been hitting ninth recently, so it was a nice change for him.
Still, he'll probably be back down at the bottom of the order on Friday,
even though he's scored 61 runs in 77 games as a leadoff man.)

To which I should add he's earned $17 in both formats of our game.

No Justin Verlander, Shane McClanahan, or Joe Musgrove?

He's been awfully good but the most Wins Above Replacement of anyone so far. Really? WPA, that I wouldn't argue  with (even though I have no idea how B-R figures that one).

06.03: Tommy Edman went 3-for-5 with two steals and three runs scored Friday against the Cubs. (Remember when the Cardinals wanted Dylan Carlson leading off and Edman hitting ninth this year? Edman is batting .281/.353/.413 with 14 steals and is
second in the majors with his 41 runs scored.)

A long and delightful read. My favorite part:

The only surprise bigger than Tommy Edman’s rapid ascent was Elise’s entry into professional baseball.

“I actually wrote my college essay about how I would hide in my little toy pink tent when I was younger and avoid watching baseball games at all costs,” Elise said. But the game grew on her, and she eventually became a team manager for her father’s high school team.

His 24 timed attempts to steal second averaged 3.53 seconds, tied for thrid in the majors with Trevor Story and Byron Buxton.

He attempted to steal a base, any base, 35 times, which leaves nine attempts unaccounted for. If he was picked off for all five of his caught stealings -- which I doubt was the case -- we still have four steal attempts that are unaccounted for.

Four attempts to steal third. Four attempts to steal any base that weren't timed?

Does it matter?

Nope. Of course not. But rather than surf around looking for the answer, I simply pose the question here.

I act as if I'm paid by the word, which of course I'm not.
