    Not everyone chooses to live in 2021.

    Bashing something you don’t understand (xyz metrics) is just another uninformed opinion.

    IIRC, Mo said they had gotten off track with the Analytics.

    That is correct bling. A couple years ago, Mo wanted to modernize/overhaul the analytics department and maybe double its size. There were bigger goals than just analytics, encompassing the broader domain of performance (things like development, training, rehab, staying healthy, etc.). I think this included things like a pitching lab. Mo wanted to find the next big thing in baseball (something along the lines of tech/analytics) and lead the Cards there first.

    At least that was some of the talk after Mo moved to POBO.

    Well in that case they need to drop the pitching lab over the side. Or sell it to the Brewers cheap.

    Some folks who have been valuing talent for many years feel comfortable with less in-depth and sophisticated statistics.
    Advanced metrics are fine, but they’re not for everybody.

    Goldstein/Szymborski et al: I don’t blame analytics for anything. I say those who need it, use it, live by it, should have at it if that’s what floats your boat. I simply don’t need it to enjoy the beauty of the game or to enhance my appreciation of the skills it requires. For me, wrapping everything in an excess of statistics detracts from the aesthetics of the thing, the sheer joy of baseball. I’m satisfied with the basic statistics and those posts that make my eyes glaze over with numbers I merely pass over. You can say those like me have chosen not to live in 2021 and have uninformed opinions, well so be it.

    Any tool can be useful and can also be misused. Just because you have the tool doesn’t mean you have the skill to use it to good effect.
