Yeah, all that is true, and I think it can definitely be argued that the emphasis on sabremetrics is the primary reason for the gradual (organization) improvement since Huntington took over. The big question mark is how to take the next step beyond mediocre contender, and I think Huntington's job is riding on whether they take that step this season. The team has not done as well with pro scouting during Huntington's tenure, and it's hard to say with any certainty that they'll be able to finish this season strong and get into a wildcard spot. The two big variables there are the third OF spot and how big of an impact Liriano/Cole have.
