Analyze This

The Phillies will be hiring an analytics expert soon. Basically this guy will be a numbers cruncher looking at all the “advanced metrics” and such. This is definitely a step in the right direction. While I’ve said Moneyball gets way too much play and sabermetric people can go too far with things, the Phillies need to do this. You have to wonder if Ruben’s “I don’t care about walks” was the last straw for the ownership. Somehow I don’t think Montgomery was behind this, but maybe one of the other owners.
