Walk in the Run

I apologize in advance for the Major League Baseball digression, but what Albert Pujols is doing this year is outrageous and worthy of discussion. The Cardinals' slugger is batting 7-for-9 with 5 HRs and 24 RBIs with the bases loaded this season. That's good for an insane 2.67 RsBI per plate appearance at-bat. Huckleberry had seventeen Cray supercomputers crunch the numbers for a couple of months and eventually determined, via an ingeniously subtle multivariable regression algorithm, that Albert's stats are "pretty impressive." It's unbelievable that giving up a free run is by far the safest strategy in any situation, but opposing managers would be crazy to keep pitching to Pujols with the bases loaded. As a Cardinals fan, I hope they do.
