The real trailer park boys.
 
Good Bill Gates quote on this:

"The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency."
Replying to @drivelinebases
Some orgs are buying lots of technology and down-ballot individuals to try and modernize, and find that they're developing players worse than ever. So their response is that technology/analytics doesn't work. It rarely dawns on them that leadership is the issue.

Organizations run their player development department at about 20-30% efficiency at best. Budgets, mismanagement, bad hires, overly sensitive to things that shouldn't matter when running a billion dollar business. You find out baseball isn't so different than corporate America.
 
This is where I鈥檓 at. Seattle has a lot of players who should be at least fine.

The Mariners need star level production, something they were completely without in 2021 and can鈥檛 bank on getting from their farm alone.
Replying to @JohnTrupin
I think Taylor is a decent fit - many of the Mariners players are position-inflexible, and Taylor's versatility especially in a park like T-Mobile is worth quite a bit more than WAR and other value estimators can capture. Directionally I agree w/ your post though.

People don't realize how lucky they are, don't appreciate the opportunities given to them, don't quite see how it all came together. But that's not a reason to be upset, though it's a normal first reaction. It's evidence that you're making an impact, but you need to change too.
The only constant is change. Nipsey Hussle had a good philosophy about this: Whenever it feels like it's too much work, too much struggle, that's the whole point. It's a blessing to be in such a situation. Imagine a life with no challenges. Such is life. Adapt and overcome.
 
In reply to @drivelinebases
Perhaps the greatest evidence that there is major change is that employees constantly fight off jobs to work in pro ball, from affiliate coach to Director. I tried like hell to get an entry-level job for years. Today, Driveline employees are at the front of the line for them.

But that's OK. The point of running @DrivelineBB wasn't to succeed on some grand scale necessarily, though I think we will (and we have in some respects). The point is that I couldn't imagine not doing it. That was enough reward for me, and why I work 80 hour weeks, every week.

I just believed that it made no sense that front offices would modernize every facet of running a team except for player development, and eventually I'd be right. But the market can remain irrational for longer than you can remain solvent, as they say. It's still true today.

Data-driven player development got a shot in the arm when the Astros won the World Series - it was a wakeup call to half the league. Similarly, it went backwards when the scandals came out - front offices everywhere used it as an excuse to pare back. Lots out of your control.

Motivational instagrams and such always say something like: "I'm not saying it's going to be easy, I'm saying it's going to be worth it." That's very deterministic. Of course it was worth it looking back. But as hard as I worked and as smart as I am, luck/timing plays a role.

Of course. But most of it is nostalgia for its own sake.

I don't miss taking the bus to a job I hated, constantly worrying about making ends meet with a new child, and having no mental space ever - you're always worrying about something when you have little money.

I love old pics like this. Does part of you miss the Dungeon like atmosphere that may have contributed to the culture? I mean the new place is beautiful but you built the old place largely DIY. I struggle with this as I get ready to move on to bigger and 鈥渕ore鈥

Interview he just did on @uponly is also top notch.

Well shit, I'm on that one tonight
 
Really good listen w/ @PabloTorre and @haralabob.

A lot is *eerily similar* to my experiences inside pro sports. Bob and I have similar backgrounds (though he's wildly more successful in gambling) - not surprising we had similar conflicts.

I'd like to say the attitude towards collecting biomechanical data and using it with athletes has vastly improved since 2011, but... it hasn't really on a large scale. Oh sure, today we collect data, but we don't show athletes, let coaches ignore data-driven methods, etc. 馃し鈥嶁檪锔
If you're a minor league player and your org has markerless biomechanical methods, chances are good the player development staff doesn't use it. Ask for the data - it is yours, after all - and organizations like @DrivelineBB can help you. Take charge of your career.
 
Ten years ago, this was the @DrivelineBB Launchpad. Outdoors, next to a trailer park, in a steel scrapyard area that we had to manually clean out over a few weeks.

Turkey needs gravy to be good. It鈥檚 one overrated meat.

So do shitty cuts of beef that go on sandwiches and such. Turkey ain鈥檛 unique in that way.

No matter what鈥檚 going on financially or otherwise at Driveline, going into work every day and knowing you have a world-class team who wants to solve problems together is one hell of a blessing. Here鈥檚 to many more exciting things in 2022 for @DrivelineBB and the team.
Replying to @drivelinebases
Also thankful for the spread at my father-in-law鈥檚 house. He crushes it. Also, hot take: I just actually like turkey and thanksgiving food at any time. I鈥檇 eat roast turkey pretty regularly.
 
Thankful for many things - family, health, and the usual. When things are boring, things are pretty good. Something I鈥檝e learned over the years.

I enjoy working, again, for the Nth year in a row. As a man who spent a decade hating work, that鈥檚 something I鈥檒l never get tired of.

At @MaxDutto_鈥檚 wedding the cake cutting was just going way too long and even Max said 鈥渨hat are we doing here鈥 so as a good guest I cupped my hands together and said 鈥渁lright roll it鈥 to both laughter and appreciation.

Baseball weddings are great.

Curious if any high school coaches have any additional insight on this.
Replying to @CarlosACollazo
HS teams would be massively improved by specifically OF shifting; platoon OF can play way way in, almost a fifth infielder. HS bats don鈥檛 have ability to drive the ball opposite field in the air, especially at lower levels.
