Article about analytics (or lack thereof) in the Mexican League

Recommended Posts

Hagerstown, Johns Hopkins, analytics, the Mexican League, and Tony Tarasco....what more could you want in an article?





The manager who had devoured Dahbura’s analytics was Tony Tarasco, 47, a former major league outfielder. He was fired in November after 41 games.

It was Tarasco who had insisted that the Charros hire Dahbura as an analytics consultant in the first place, and the early results were decent. With Dahbura’s metrics filtered through Tarasco’s on-field experience, the Charros were 19-16 in the first half of the season and stood in first place.

But after a 1-5 road trip to open the second half of the season and a few controversial in-game decisions, Tarasco was dismissed. He returned to his home in Southern California.

“I guess I got him fired,” Dahbura said sheepishly, “which really stinks, you know, because he got me the job.”
