    Yes, the Astros leadership role came out over a year ago. This is from page 3 of this thread…

    Also deMause cited the term “McKinseyizing” baseball. Consulting for the firm is precisely how Luhnow came into contact with DeWitt all those years ago.

    Manford is also responsible for this crime. He has hurt the game much more than he has helped it IMO. Another prize-winning son-of-a-biotch.

    This ran 12 days ago, but I forgot to call attention to it at that time. Still relevant and worth reading…

    When do we expect the PDL’s to be signed and final leading to structuring the Minor Leagues and finally schedules?

    As I understand it, February 10 is the deadline, but if some of the 120 opt out, how long will it take for MLB to get replacement teams signed?

    Rob Manfred has succeeded in making himself Pope of baseball.

    Some changes coming to the rules in MiLB this year. Different levels will have different experimental rules. Among them will be the requirement at AA for all infielders to be on the dirt, with the possibility in the second half that shifts will be entirely banned.

    I have no problem with infielders having to be on dirt with no extra outfielders. I don’t like the ideal of no shifts. I get tired of mlb trying to manufacture great hitters instead of creating them.

    I don’t like either of those. Lengthening how far pitchers throw would only cause more injuries, the other just seems stupid.

    Wasn’t one of the reasons about contraction of MiLB teams that players would be better compensated and treated better?

    Good to see the conditions have improved with the cost savings this year.

    That is really stupid. MLB should be so proud of itself. Though to be fair, I’m sure back in the day it wasn’t as nice as that.

    That is truly pathetic.

    Funny, I always receive email confirmations when I book a hotel room, whether I do so personally or through a corporate travel department, and whether I do so through the hotel directly or through a travel site.

    Back off the Angels. Have to cover bad contracts somehow.

    This is shocking. Sounds even sadistic in a way. If I’m a parent with a twenty-something boy living under these conditions, I’m livid about it, and I want it fixed. Moreno must be a sicko.

    One rule change idea is not being well accepted. (Also, I encourage you to read the author’s other article on brain drain in MLB. Very, very interesting and something I have seen.

    When you get excited about the possibility of big free agent signings this coming winter, temper them against the economic background explained in the article.
