Link: Morgan Ensberg – “Lidge vs. Pujols: I was in the wrong spot”

by on March 15, 2010 · 2 comments

Former MLBer Morgan Ensberg is attempting to transition into broadcasting, now that his playing career is over.  As such, he’s been reaching out to anyone who will read what he has to write, both at his new blog and on Twitter (@MorganEnsberg).

Reading his “insider” accounts and knowledge about the game is refreshing, but today’s was particularly interesting, given the topic.

From Ensberg’s entry:

What’s my point?

Eckstein’s hit in the “5–6″ hole was the difference in the game.  I was not positioned properly at third base.

Why does it matter?

If Eckstein get’s on base, Lidge had to face the lefty Edmonds. In 2004 and 2005, Edmonds hit 4 home runs into the left field Crawford Boxes.   Behind Edmonds is Pujols, the best hitter the game has ever seen.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
