The Baldelli Effect

Posted by Kirbek , 20 May 2019 · 1,249 views

Now that the FO has their preferred type of manager, the early results are positive to say the least. Are there any advanced metrics to predict how sustainable Baldelli's success will be? Is manager evaluation still a gut feeling or is there a science we can leverage? I am asking for a friend.

I'm old school and back in the day it was easy to see who should deserve the credit(or blame) Innovation in the game has made coaching staffs more diverse and definitely larger in numbers. Although Baldelli deserves a ton of credit, in today's game it's pretty hard to pinpoint it. certainly Johnson deserves a share. In today's game you just have to applaud the entire organization for it's approach and belief in it and their players for embracing it.
