Here is Zach Bove's website.Really interesting stuff.A very good pickup for the Twins
Thank you for telling us about this guy's blog, thrylos. Much to the chagrin of my family, I found it fascinating. Also, I learned a lot of useless things.
In his blog, Bove goes into some discussion about individualizing a player's development. I realized I have NEVER heard a single Twins player mention being given some kind of agreed-upon, formalized improvement plan. I'm guessing the mainstream guys wouldn't be likely to ask about such things, since it would not be of interest to the average consumer of their work product. But I hope that my talented pals who write for TD will gain access to some key development guy soon and grill them on all the things going on. Which is a lot, both in terms of new video and software technology and with changes in approach. These new hires are indicative of some exciting movement in the wheels of progress.
"Not all of my players have improved their velocity and command, or had success with pitch design, and that is MY fault." Not verbatim, but it sure sounds good, doesn't it? And this from a guy who's not the best candidate for a role in pitching development.
Anyway, I encourage people to disappoint those around them and take the time to read this guy's blog. Again, thanks, thrylos.
