Indians get smarter
The Cleveland Indians, the team I’ve often described as the best run franchise in baseball, today announced the hiring Keith Woolner away from Baseball Prospectus to manage their statistical research and analysis department. Keith’s a smart guy, and was always very helpful to me, so I’m happy for him. He’s joining a first rate organization.
What does this mean for Mariner fans? Maybe nothing… or perhaps, the Indians are simply preparing themselves for life after Chris Antonetti, who essentially built the department that Woolner will now oversee.
Some team will get to see Antonetti in ’08 become a reality. Here’s to hoping it’s the Mariners.
