The Houston sign-stealing scandal was perpetrated by a front office well known for using analytics more than any other organization in the sport. Clark views this is as merely one example of clubs prioritizing analytics at the expense of the humans who play the game.

The union sees this issue showing up in areas such as the manipulation of players’ big league service time, placement on the injured list and a style of play on the field that sometimes goes against players’ wishes. Clark lumps all of these things together in what he describes as a “club culture” that overemphasizes metrics and the desire to be efficient above all else.

“This culture that exists against the backdrop of technology is manifesting itself in a way where you’ve heard me over the last few years say we need to have a conversation about what our game is and what it looks like,”

I can see where Papi would value discretion.

You're not suggesting that leading the league in doubles, RBI, slugging and OPS at the age of 40 is unusual, are you?  If anybody was going to age better than Mays, Aaron, Williams, Ruth, and Cobb it would be the guy released by the Twins.

I didn't even think about that.  I was talking about cheating on your spouse with the GF of a drug dealer.

Oh, but he's just a big, lovable Boston teddy bear.  All is forgiven and brushed under the rug when you win enough trophies.
