Cardinal fan Jon Box brought this article to my attention.

"Without putting too fine a point on it, the Redbirds are taking their first steps into the Moneyball realm. Luhnow should bring a different perspective to a team that has not relied as heavily on statistical models and data as some other franchises in recent years."

The Cards appear to have seen the light and will start to apply some of the sabermetric principles I mentioned in my review of Moneyball posted earlier. Good for them. It doesn't appear the Cubs are anywhere close to such an approach as their thinking appears to be very traditionalist.
