An appeal to an authorify is a fallacy anyway. But if people are going to use that, though, then I'd take a front office execs opinion (and all the stats and scouts insight that comes with it) over what managers and players think. I don't see how that is even a debate- front office execs are just much smarter and more well informed about players performance; it's what they do and why GM's get paid millions of dollars.
Such as to a statician?
