They continue to ignore the modern reality of baseball, and this disdain for analytics is costing the team. I'm not sure why RAJ so detests them, but he either needs to get over it, or be gotten rid of. I LIKED having my baseball team be relevant. The current Phillies are not.
He actually really does detest them too if I'm not mistaken. I believe he's made some snide remarks about advances stats in interviews, which makes no sense considering the rest of the sports world, not just baseball, are all getting deep into analytic's. I feel like our team is being run by a poster from the main boards.
