Are front offices making players feel like a number? Is there more to baseball, and life, than math and science? 2 Comments Linda Fredericks on March 26, 2020 at 10:56 pm Enjoyed the 1st 3 programs. Looking forward to more in the future. Thank you. Log in to Reply zach.lee on March 28, 2020 at 8:04 pm Excellent first episode, Mark. Baseball is so much more than raw data, numbers, and analytics. I love the poetry of the game. And what do we have to say for the reality of intangibles that fill in the tapestry of the old ballgame? The problem with the today’s game isn’t just analytics. I think ownership, Rob Manfred, and the baseball union have also contributed to a suffering onfield product by due to tiny ballparks, expanding roster sizes, tv contract requirement, liberalizing rules and roster implications for injuries, contact home runs over contact hitting and the run game, etc. There’s a lot of blame to go around, but I feel the game is in desperate need of reformation if it hopes to have any sort of future success because 4 hour games with 15 pitching changes and 20 mins of actual action ain’t gonna cut it.
