He can dance and run bases, too.

Tommy Pham has long been the darling here at Viva El Birdos. Despite his misfortune with injury, we remained steadfast in our optimism that he might one day make an impact for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Needless to say we are pretty excited about Jeff Sullivan's article at Fangraph's about the Cardinals best player:

The best player on the Cardinals, by Wins Above Replacement, leads the team by a margin of one full win. The best player on the Cardinals didn’t crack the opening-day roster. As a consequence of that, the best player on the Cardinals gave serious thought to calling it quits. The best player on the Cardinals is a 29-year-old who came into the year with a half-season’s worth of major-league experience. The best player on the Cardinals has himself an extended injury history, and the best player on the Cardinals has also had to manage a degenerative eye condition, called keratoconus. The best player on the Cardinals probably isn’t supposed to be the best player on the Cardinals.

The best player on the Cardinals is Tommy Pham. Without Pham, the Cardinals are not even close to making the postseason. We are so happy!
