Thank goodness a lot of "nerds" are now working in front offices.
Hooked on phonics man, it apparently works for people who have difficulty understanding what they read. If you read what I posted and came up with that as a response, clearly it's over your head and you should just move along. I said that heart makes a huge difference when comparing two players with the same statistical production. If you had some sort of production as an athlete, there's no doubt you would have made it in sports with all of that heart you clearly possess.
Nerds are working in front offices, but do you really think their influence on player personnel decisions compares at all to the influence of people in the organization who actually watch games to form opinions on players? I don't. It's something tightwad organizations, desperate organizations, and often crummy organizations would rely on and nothing more.
