I think hiring him is a good move for the Rangers. I'm not sure if he can turn the team around but it's a start

Analytics was always a flawed concept in sports management.

You're making decisions based on statistics that are out of forum in the standard deviation.

As the law of probability suggests, all outliers regress to the mean...so true analytics would be to fade the trends.

Bochey will have that club contending in 2 years.

Coaches using analytics have an excuse for losing.

If they use the stats and the GM aks them, "what the hell were you thinking?" The coach spews out the stats and says, "That's why".... Thinking his a$$ is now covered.

Old school coaches that adeptly read and understand the situations that arise in a game are the best. Sparky Anderson, Tommy Lasorda, Jim Leyland, Bobby Cox.....
