Moving on to the deployment...
Is he going to be able to do the Jose Iglesias trick of batting 3rd on Opening Day, and 2nd or 3rd in 100% of his starts?
Roster Resource resting on a guess of 7th behind Hays/Stewart/Santander/Mancini/Sisco/Mountcastle.
Opening Day was Hays/Santander/Iglesias/Nunez/Davis/Alberto/Ruiz/Severino/Stewart.
A lot of us said things back in 2018, not knowing a global pandemic would throw a monkey wrench into things.
Overall, I'm happy with what he's done. The system is better than it was when he took over. There's a focus on getting good international talent in the system. There's a focus on advanced metrics and analytics.
The product at the ML level still sucks but at least there's some hope on the horizon. I'm fine with what he's done so far and I think it'll pay off in the coming years.
Judging by what we have seen so far why would a team be eager to promote him?
So far he's upped the technology, slashed payroll and collected high draft picks.
I haven't seen anything so far that makes me think I have to have this guy as my team president.
