Top President / EVP Candidates?

Recommended Posts

Ty Brooks is an obvious fit for this job. He's worked with very good organizations and in positions of rebuild. He has a scouting and player development background and has worked in all facets of the game. He is a local, very hungry, and wants nothing more than to bring a winner back to Baltimore. He is also a close personal childhood friend. Make it happen!

He would be on my short list.

Same was true of Matt Klentak, now Philly’s GM.

Klentak was credited with claiming Darren O'Day off of waivers in 2011 between when MacPhail left and Duquette was hired.

I thought Buck got the credit for that one?

He certainly was by some.  Maybe he should’t have been, or maybe the two were working together?

What, an interim GM and a manager who talk with each other?   Inconceivable!

 They need string baseball scouting background Ng does not have.

Not calling you out but this line seems to be showing up constantly.  If Ng is hired as the President does anyone really think She does not have the ability to surround herself with people that can assist her in her endeavors??  The President title does enable that person to hire people that will assist them in decision making.

This hiring needs to happen soon.  Presume 2-3 weeks after the hiring to interview and hire a GM, and that gives the GM only a couple of weeks to evaluate talent before the Winter Meetings.  Couple this with the need to square up the 40 man roster and this hiring needs to happen post haste.

The Winter Meetings are not a big deal to the O's.   They are not going to sign expensive FA.   Graham can set the 40 man roster for the Rule 5 draft.

The important thing is to hire the right executives to put the team on a good path to the future.

I believe it is Ben Cherington job as pbo and josh McLeod as the gm.  They need string baseball scouting background Ng does not have.

You say you “believe” it is Cherington’s job as PBO & McLeod as GM.  What leads you to believe this?  Do you have a source that has told you this, or are you just speculating?  I hope you are right, because I think that would be a great combo, and it would make some sense because they worked together for many years in Boston and presumably have a good relationship.

True this.

    • I'm multitasking.
    • I'm here too, logged in as DJ Stewart's number one fan on the board. I like the guys who don't look like athletes.
    • Here's bad news: I'm watching. 
    • Looks like it's just me and you here, @eddie83
    • So I had a grand theory all ready to explain modern baseball, based on the impact of the information revolution on defense.  According to the theory, better data has allowed teams to better measure individual defense and the contribution of defense to run prevention, which has led to increased emphasis on defensive ability in personnel decisions.  Better data has also led to shifts and other improvements in defensive positioning.  All of these factors have led in theory to improved defensive efficiency--an increase in the percentage of balls in play that are converted into outs.  In turn, this has led to a change in optimal offensive strategies.  If it's harder to get hits on balls in play, then it is less likely that you will be able to score runs by stringing a bunch of singles together, or by using small ball tactics like base stealing, the hit and run and the sacrifice.  Teams thus optimally put more emphasis on power in personnel decisions, because a home run is the one way to score runs that can't be stopped by good defense. Great theory, huh?  Then I looked at the data.  Here are the numbers for aggregate defensive efficiency for MLB since 2001: 2001:  0.691     2002:  0.695   2003:  0.694   2004:  0.691   2005:  0.693   2006:  0.687   2007:  0.686   2008:  0.689 2009:  0.690   2010:  0.691   2011:  0.694    2012:  0.691   2013:  0.692   2014:  0.690    2015:  0.689    2016: 0.688 2017:  0.688    2018:  0.691 So twenty years into the defensive revolution, we have...the same defensive efficiency that we had in 2001.  Teams on the whole are doing no better today at converting balls in play into outs than they were in 2001, despite all of the shifts and all of the zone ratings and other defensive measures that are now available.   So much for my theory.  Some earlier posts suggest another theory--improved pitch design and velocity have made it harder to hit for contact, which increases strikeouts and reduces batting average.  In turn this leads to a greater emphasis on power at the expense of contact, increasing home runs, further increasing strikeouts and further reducing batting average.  That theory may be correct, but it's less obvious to me that the correct strategic response to improved pitch design and velocity is to sacrifice contact for power. It could go the other way--in response to better pitching, it is even more important to hit for contact, to put the ball in play, to sustain an offense.  It would take a model simulation to determine whether the optimal response to power pitching is to emphasize power hitting.   Or it could just be a juiced ball!
