Elias doesnt strike me as a guy that doesnt exam all the information available from his scouts and his own eyes.
I am curious to see which one he picks, of course OH might not be in agreement with his pick.
It is true, as samples decrease standard deviation increases. We won't get the counting stats but someone could hit .400 or have a 0.00 ERA in 33 innings or something.
The other side of the coin is we might see even shorter pitcher outings with large rosters and short schedules. So it might be an endless stream of one-inning relievers throwing 96 mph, so overall offense might be down and even more three true outcomes (blech).
