Who's hitting after him right now? Kendrys Morales? That's a big dropoff from Holliday to Morales.
It's unfair to point out that Albert's chase rate has gone from under 20% to over 30% in the last few years? I don't think you read the post. Anyway, Berkman was the Cardinals #4 hitter more often than Holliday last year, and he had a great season. Not that it has anything to do with what I posted.
