Statistics and numbers have always permeated baseball. From its earliest days, observers of the sport have attempted to catalog the performance of the game in various ways using numbers. Those efforts have evolved from merely trying to describe or recreate the game numerically to understanding, explaining and predicting performance on the field. We can safely say that the transition to an era where virtually every front office looks to data and advanced analytical methods for some kind of advantage (or, at the very least, to keep up with the competition) is complete.

We're very forward-looking...What is this player going to contribute to the club this year, next year, in three years? How are these prospects going to develop? What is the makeup of the team going to look like and how competitive is that going to be???

Predictive.
